Messi and Tevez noteworthy 9/2 anytime scorers with Coral!

With the Champions League hotting up, Coral bring you a sensational special featuring Argentine duo Lionel Messi and Carlos Tevez priced as 9/2 anytime scorers. Read on and find out why this is one midweek proposition you simply cannot ignore!

Carlos Tevez dispatched in the first leg against Juventus, opening the scoring, and was a constant threat for the Old Lady throughout the match. He is a short 7/4 to score anytime against the German’s whose defence has looked unstable on more than one occasion this season. The diminutive striker is clever in his movement, and can find small pockets of space, almost undetected, enabling him to cause teams problems.

The 31-year-old has struck 21 times in 34 appearances across all competitions this season for the Italian outfit, which includes four Champions League goals in seven outings.

Mercurial Messi, has a haul of 43 goals in 39 appearances across all competitions this campaign, including eight Champions League strikes in seven games.

Southampton boss and former Barcelona player Ronald Koeman recently paid testament to the Argentinian’s abilities saying: “Whenever Messi is on top of his game, Barcelona are simply unstoppable.

“He has always given everything for Barcelona and has never created any problems. You can say a lot of things about some people, but not about Messi.”

Manchester City defender, Martin Demichelis, who may feature against his international teammate, also spoke highly of the talented Barca star: “I’m one of his biggest admirers and even more so with the excellent form he has been showing of late. When he’s at his best he is unstoppable as he’s so unpredictable.

“Messi is the best in the world.”

Last season, when Barcelona played Man City in the Champions League, Messi scored home and away against Manuel Pellegrini’s side, notching a penalty at the Etihad, while at the Nou Camp, he ran the show inspiring the Catalan club to a 4-1 aggregate victory.
