Hazard and Van Persie a fantastic 5/2 to score anytime

With the Euro 2016 qualifiers in full flow, Coral provide a sensational scoring special featuring Eden Hazard and Robin van Persie both to score anytime at a 5/2 price.

Hazard is primed to run riot against a Wales side for Belgium, who are overwhelmingly odds-on at 2/7 to win their latest Euro 2016 qualifying match. The Chelsea star, who has been flying this season, is a fabulous 5/1 price to net the first goal and on current form is more than capable of doing so.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho recently raved about Hazard in British press, saying: “We have big hopes that he will go from the top player he is at this moment and will reach higher levels to become one of the best. Even last season his was a big evolution from the Hazard I met in Thailand (pre-season) when I arrived. He was a kid always living on his amazing natural talent.”

He continued: “There’s been a big improvement. That’s why we’re seeing he’s a top talent, a fantastic player. But now we want, because his talent allows him to, is to go from a top player to one of the greats of his generation. That’s what we think he can achieve, and why we’re proud that he thinks that Chelsea is the perfect environment for him to undertake that evolution.”

It’s very rare that the Portuguese manager is wrong and, weighing up the evidence so far, there is no reason not to get behind this extraordinary bet.

Heading up the other half is Van Persie, who has excelled for the Netherlands (heavily odds-on at 1/7 to beat Latvia), making this bet a no-brainer. At 10/3 to score first, the Manchester United striker is renowned for not needing another chance in front of net, once he is given an opportunity. With 48 international goals in 96 appearances, it further proves his prowess, and is more likely to net multiple times against minnows Latvia.

At 5/2 for both players to score anytime. Staking just £10 will return £25, plus the principal expenditure.
