Balotelli and Bale both to score anytime at thrilling 3/1

| 16.09.2014

Coral offer fantastically enhanced odds of 3/1 for goal machines and footballing superstars Mario Balotelli and Gareth Bale both to score for their respective sides in the Champions League.

Liverpool’s newest signing Balotelli will be hoping to get off the mark for the Reds against Bulgarian minnows Ludogorets Razgrad, while Welsh wing wizard Bale and Real Madrid face Basel.

Both these games are at home, so expect goals to fly in for these footballing giants, who have 15 European Cups between them in history.

The Reds are already heavily odds-on at 2/9 to win at Anfield, and Balotelli 10/11 to score anytime. At the age of 24, the Italian has already achieved so much, and has a solid record in European competitions, netting 12 times.

In other scorer markets, Balotelli is 7/2 to get the first goal of the Group B game, 4/1 to bag a brace or better and 18/1 to hit a hat-trick.

Madrid’s Bale, who is seemingly the heir to Cristiano Ronaldo’s throne, meanwhile, has highly impressed for both his old side Spurs and the Spanish giants.

The Wales international comes into this game in flying form, after almost single-handedly seeing off Andorra in his country’s Euro 2016 qualifier, by netting the equaliser and a late, superb, match-winning free-kick.

From 21 Champions League fixtures in his whole career, Bale has scored 10 times. He has a further four goals from 10 games in the Europa League playing for Tottenham, and it is fair to say the Welshman is more than fancied to be on target against his Swiss opposition, who are a massive 20/1 to win at the Bernabeu.

Madrid start their campaign to defend their title, after lifting ‘La Decima’ last season, as overwhelming odds-on 1/8 favourites for victory. A thrashing could be on the cards here, so take a price of 7/10 for them to win to nil.
