Diego Costa and Arjen Robben a fantastic 4/1 to score anytime

With Champions League fixtures approaching, you all know what that means. We are back with an excellently enhanced anytime scorer special, featuring Diego Costa and Arjen Robben at a 4/1 price.

Costa’s Chelsea take on PSG at Stamford Bridge, so his manager Jose Mourinho will be looking to reach the quarter-finals and push on into the latter stages of Europe’s elite club competition. The 26-year-old has odds of 4/1 in the first scorer market and is evens to notch anytime, which make this bet even more remarkable.

With Eden Hazard, Oscar, Cesc Fabregas, Willian and now Juan Cuadrado offering support to him in attack, it is likely that Costa will have a plethora of opportunities to find the net, against a PSG defence which can often be prone to lapses in concentration. His physical presence can cause problems for Laurent Blanc’s backline in front of what should be a full to capacity home crowd.

Robben’s Bayern Munich are also playing in their own backyard as they take on Shakhtar Donetsk, and the flying Dutchman is a very short 6/5 shot to score in the anytime market. He has hit 19 in 27 appearance for Pep Guardiola this season, and is in the form of his life.

Guardiola recently said of Robben: “I’m in love with Arjen. In the whole of my career as player and coach, I’ve maybe seen one or two players who are as professional as Arjen. He has an unbelievable mentality.”

Club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge also shares these sentiments: “I’ve been saying it for over a year, I think he’s the best outfield player in the world at the moment.

“He’s world class at the moment and virtually unstoppable. He dribbles, he’s quick and he scores bags of goals. We’re really happy he’s playing for Bayern Munich.”

Robben was also vocal about his recent form, adding: “We use all kinds of formations with Pep [Guardiola] and this means I can play inside or outside, just behind the strikers or even as a striker. That’s fantastic because the way he wants to play, with a very dominant style, suits me perfectly.”

With all this in mind surely this 4/1 special is worth a punt.
