Bet of the day: Lewandowski to score two or more v Hamburg

Coral’s bet of the day
The Bundesliga is back on TV after a short winter break, so Coral have picked out a princely bet of the day to celebrate the screening of Hamburg v Bayern Munich, as Pep Guardiola’s German juggernauts surge on towards the title.
Singled out as our worthiest wager in this wrangle is Bayern’s Polish goal poacher Robert Lewandowski, who is offered at a tempting 3/1 match special to score two or more, with a maximum stake of £20, generously enhanced from 2/1 in the regular market.
Why back lethal Lewandowski to bag a brace or better? Read on to find out why the Munich marksman is our best bet of the day…
Lewandowski lurking at Volksparkstadion
Of course the first thing which may come to customers’ minds is Poland predator Lewandowski’s heroic haul of five goals in nine minutes earlier this season, so backing the fierce frontman just to net two or more does not seem so outlandish.
The Allianz Arena attacker is never one to be content with just a single notch on the scoresheet, and has hit three in his last four fixtures, including a recent match-winning double against Dinamo Zagreb in December. As it happens, that occasion was the fifth time this term that Lewandowski has bagged a brace or better in all competitions. Not bad, right?
With 15 league goals so far in 16 games, the White Eagles international is chasing Bundesliga top scorer bragging rights, and has struck an impressive 23 times for his club this campaign, plus netted nine in six across 2015 for Poland.
Dangerous Bayern to dispatch the Dinosaur
Every leading man requires a top class supporting cast, and Guardiola’s guys certainly provide that, with an embarrassment of attacking riches in Kingsley Coman, Douglas Costa, Mario Gotze, Thomas Muller and Arjen Robben all on the Allianz Arena roster.
It’s no surprise with such talents to cherry pick from, that the Munich men have grabbed an incredible 46 goals in just 17 Bundesliga battles, then.
Such potency should not be stalled by Hamburg, who sit 10th in the table with 23 strikes conceded. The Dinosaur is rather an apt nickname for this creaking former giant, and Bayern have bagged a whopping 40 in their past nine meetings with the midtable team. Lewandowski has also been on target in his past two against them, making Coral’s cracking 3/1 special (max stake £20) for the sharpshooter to clock-up two or more, even more enticing.
