Mario Balotelli and Danny Welbeck in wicked 5/1 scorer double

Coral are offering exciting enhanced odds to mark a thrilling Wednesday of Champions League football fixtures.

Mario Balotelli and Danny Welbeck feature in this sensational scorer double, and are available at 5/1 both to net anytime in their respective Champions League games.

Balotelli will lead the line for Liverpool against Basel, whilst Welbeck will be expected to fire Arsenal to glory against Galatasaray.

Here’s why this is such a marvellous midweek bet.

Last time Liverpool faced Basel away from home, fleet-footed striker Michael Owen fired home the final goal. This time the Reds have an altogether more fiery forward representing them, and Balotelli is available at 11/2 to follow in Owen’s footsteps and hit home last.

Balotelli scored his first goal for Brendan Rodgers’ Reds against Ludogorets Razgrad in his side’s last Champions League outing. Fans will be hoping the unpredictable attacker can conjure some more European magic this time out, against a porous Basel backline that conceded five goals against Real Madrid.

Swiss Super League side Basel have only managed to keep two clean sheets in 11 games in all competitions so far this season, so facing former AC and Inter Milan man Balotelli will be a fearsome prospect. The powerful Palermo-born striker netted 14 Serie A goals for the Rossoneri last campaign and will be eager to extend his tally for the Anfield outfit.

Welbeck, meanwhile, will also be hungry to impress his new club as he spearheads Arsenal’s attack against Turkish side Galatasaray. The England international, who has 10 goals in 28 caps, opened his account for the Gunners against Aston Villa, and will be expected to now make an impact in Europe.

Galatasaray conceded twice in their last away outing in the Turkish Super Lig, and Welbeck, who has significant Champions League experience with former team Manchester United, will be hoping to pounce.

Available at 4/1 to fire home first, Three Lions forward Welbeck, supported by the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, now has the opportunity to run rampant against a side Arsenal are odds-on favourites at 4/7 to beat.
