Tevez and Rodrigo Lima in Coral anytime scorer double special

Back Juventus forwards Carlos Tevez and Benfica striker Rodrigo Lima both to score anytime in their respective Europa League quarter-final first leg fixtures, against Lyon and AZ Alkmaar on the road at 11/2.

Argentine attacker Tevez is Serie A’s leading scorer this season so far, with 18 goals from 29 outings and, with seven in his last seven games, he is a man in rampant form.

The former Manchester United and City player can be backed at 6/4 in the anytime scorer market, or 8/1 to bag a brace or more.

Tevez has played Lyon twice before, both for the Red Devils in their Champions League last 16 2-1 aggregate win in 2008, and netted once. Both appearances, however, were from off the bench, so his one goal in just under 50 minutes looks even more impressive.

Juve (13/10 favourites to win the competition) are odds-on favourites to win this match at Lyon’s Stade de Gerland at 8/11, and are even more certain to qualify for the semis at 1/6.

Benfica striker Rodrigo Lima, 30, has a great record in the Europa League this campaign so far, scoring three times in four matches. He also netted once in five Champions League appearances.

His 11 goals in 24 Portuguese top-flight matches this season are impressive. Rodrigo Lima has scored three in his last three in the league.

Back the prolific Brazilian at evens to net anytime against the Dutch opponents, or 4/1 to get a double or more – as he has done so twice this season already domestically.

The Lisbon giants, who top their league by seven points, are also favourites to win their away leg odds-on at 8/11, and are 1/5 to qualify to the last four.

Benfica are twice runners-up in this competition, including last season, and Coral price them as second-favourites to go one better and win the Europa League this time at 10/3.
