Bet of the day: Bale strikes again in Real Madrid win over Man City
Lee Gormley | May 4, 2016
Coral’s bet of the day
- Gareth Bale has four goals in as many recent outings
- The Welshman has 24 strikes on all fronts this season
- Real Madrid have lost once in their previous 14 games
- They have not lost a home Champions League game since March last year
- That is their only defeat at the Bernabeu in Europe since April 2012
Bale scores and Real win in 90 minutes at 5/2
Having been held to a 1-1 draw at the Etihad by Manchester City last week, Real Madrid will look to put on a dominant display on home soil and set up a tasty Champions League final clash with close city rivals Atletico Madrid.
As part of Coral’s latest bet of the day, you can get involved with the European action too and make a nice midweek profit by backing in-form Welsh wizard Gareth Bale to strike anytime in a Real home win over City within 90 minutes at 5/2, with a £20 max stake.
The hosts have been in superior form at the Bernabeu this season, and hold a truly dominant record in Europe’s elite club competition when featuring in front of their own fans, while attacker Bale comes into this encounter enjoying a superb scoring streak.
Bale to down Man City
Wales international forward Bale will take to the Bernabeu turf on the back of four goals in as many recent outings, having dispatched the winning strikes past both Rayo Vallecano and Real Sociedad, while also finding the target against Getafe.
The clinical winger has been performing brilliantly in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo, but Man City are set to feel the full force of Madrid’s dynamic strikeforce here, as the latter Portugal ace makes a promising return to action.
With Bale having fired in 21 times so far this season, along with Ronaldo’s incredible 47 notches, Manuel Pellegrini’s defence will need to be at their absolute best on the road.
The hosts have amazingly lost just one home European game since April 2012, being toppled by Schalke early last year, proving how tasty these odds of 5/2 for Bale to score anytime in a Galacticos win truly are. So don’t miss out!
