Ronaldo and Sanchez a thrilling 3/1 to score anytime

Coral bring punters a sensational scoring double for the upcoming Champions League action, which features Cristiano Ronaldo and Alexis Sanchez both to net at 3/1 price.

Ronaldo’s Real Madrid take on FC Basel in Switzerland, and the player was on target and generally had a stormer as Los Blancos recorded a 5-1 victory last time out against them. As a result, the 29-year-old is 5/2 favourite to strike first in the reverse fixture. He has a three goal haul in the Champions League this season so far, 14 behind last term’s total tally, when he finished as the tournament top scorer.

The Portugal international is well on the way to breaking records in a Real shirt, having netted an astonishing 277 times in 264 appearances, and overall has 394 in 556 games domestically.

Sanchez also features and, having struck last time out in Europe against Anderlecht, he is now on three goals, and it is largely thanks to his record that Arsenal are not too far adrift of the top four this season. He is the 4/1 favourite to score first against Borussia Dortmund, and ex-legend Ian Wright recently said the club would be struggling without the Chilean.

“If it wasn’t for Sanchez, where would they be now?” Wright said. “They are mid-table without Alexis Sanchez”

Theo Walcott recently revealed the secret behind the players’ current good form: “In training he doesn’t even want to do recovery days,” he said.

“All the guys have told him he needs to chill out because, at Christmas when all the fixtures come along, it’s going to catch up with you.

“He doesn’t care, he just wants to play and win. He’s a good leader, and something that we haven’t had in the Arsenal team before. He’s a dream to play with.”

Sanchez himself, meanwhile, is glad he joined the club, and feels he can win may trophies during his time there.

“I tell you seriously, I like what I see so much that I have repeated myself many times, that if we have the required winning mentality, if we are positive and try to win every single game, I know we can win any competition,” he said.

“I know that with this team we can win many trophies in the coming years. I am convinced,” Sanchez continued.

“I hope to win everything here. That’s why I came.”
