Alexis Sanchez and Diego Costa a deadly Champions League scorer double
The Champions League is where the best talents in world football flourish and, with Lionel Messi injured, the spotlight falls on stars closer to have this Tuesday.
Coral offer a fantastically enhanced 5/1 scorer double on Alexis Sanchez and Diego Costa, with Premier League pair Arsenal and Chelsea in action. What makes this such a brilliant bet? Read on and find out…
This year has been all about trophies for Gunners forward Sanchez. He followed up FA Cup glory with his club by inspiring country Chile to a historic first-ever Copa America triumph, beating the best South American international football had to offer.
A Premier League hat-trick at high-flying Leicester City on the eve of Arsenal’s Champions League group game with Olympiakos was a timely reminder of Sanchez’s considerable talent. He scored three times in five outings during this phase of Europe’s elite club competition last term.
Sanchez has proved himself to be a clear and present danger, combining pace which makes him a threat in behind defences with silky skills and sureness of touch.
Joining him in this scorer double is Brazil-born Spain striker Costa, who offers a completely different threat for Jose Mourinho, but is no less dangerous.
With the Blues boss facing a trip to former club Porto, he has been made to rest battering ram centre forward Costa because of a domestic ban. A fresh frontman is set to be deadly in the Dragons’ den.
Firing Chelsea to their first Premier League title for five years last term, Costa has nine Champions League goals in just 17 appearances, and any scoring ratio that is better than one in two is something to be celebrated at Stamford Bridge and for punters to take note of.
So, there you have it. Back a rejuvenated Sanchez and Costa, who is chomping at the bit to play first-team football in Europe, both to be on target this Tuesday.
