Cristiano Ronaldo and Danny Welbeck in delicious 3/1 double

Enjoy enticing enhanced odds with another of Coral’s marvellous midweek Champions League specials. This time, former Manchester United duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Danny Welbeck are available at a fantastic 3/1 both to score anytime and excel once again in Europe for Real Madrid and Arsenal respectively.

Rampant Ronaldo will lead the line for Los Blancos against old foes Liverpool, whilst rapid Welbeck will spearhead the Gunners’ attack away to Anderlecht. Here’s what makes these two formidable forwards such great value in this delectable scorer double.

Real superstar Ronaldo has been on target a tremendous 15 times in just seven La Liga games this term, with Carlo Ancelotti’s decision to move the Portugal skipper into a more central position bearing fruit.

The incredible Iberian is edging closer to beating Los Blancos legend Raul’s Champions League all-time top scorer record. Ronaldo currently stands on 69, needing just three to steam ahead, with the added incentive of pipping rival Lionel Messi to the post.

Ronaldo is 4/1 to equal, or better, history by bagging a brace or more against Brendan Rodgers’ Reds, after scoring a sensational 14 goals in his last six games in all competitions. The Ballon d’Or winner will benefit from the support of fellow Galacticos Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez, against a Reds defence that has conceded 10 times in their last six outings.

Injuries and poor form have plagued Rodgers’ error-strewn rearguard, meaning goal-machine Ronaldo will fancy his chances of a memorable night at Anfield.

Ronaldo’s former Red Devils teammate Welbeck, who was rising through the ranks at Old Trafford whilst the Portuguese was still tearing Premier League defences apart, is the second half of this tantalising double.

Welbeck has been in fine form of late, illustrating just why Arsene Wenger snatched the striker from United’s clutches this summer. The Gunners have hardly missed sidelined Olivier Giroud, with Welbeck seamlessly stepping into the French forward’s shoes, adding further dynamism, pace and link-up play to the north London giants.

The 23-year-old England international has been prolific under Wenger’s wing, scoring five goals in seven appearances in all competitions. Welbeck’s finest hour in an Arsenal shirt came against Galatasaray last time out in Europe, where he hit a fantastic hat-trick, making him 20/1 to net three once again against Belgian minnows Anderlecht.
