Magnificent Martinez and brilliant Benzema in 9/2 scorer special

| 18.02.2015

Champions League football has returned, and Coral are celebrating by offering customers another amazing scorer special for you to enjoy in midweek!

Back Jackson Martinez and Karim Benzema both to score anytime at 9/2, and reap the rewards of this delightful scorer double.

Porto, 11/8 to win, will travel to Switzerland to face Basel, with their prolific poacher Martinez hoping to add to his impressive 21 strikes this season.

The ferocious forward has been in sensational goalscoring form this current campaign, electrifying the Champions League and the Portuguese Primeira Liga with his dominant displays in front of goal.

Magnificent marksman Martinez has already struck five times in the group stages for the Portuguese giants, and has incredibly fired in 13 goals in his previous 16 outings.

The clinical Colombian hitman is 5/1 to open proceedings at St Jakob-Park, having done so in two of his last three appearances for the Dragons, during victories over Pacos Ferreira and Moreirense.

Basel are relatively new to Europe’s biggest club competition, and progressed past the group stages despite winning only two games, losing on three occasions.

Free-scoring forward Martinez will fancy his chances of netting against the Swiss outfit, with only Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Shakhtar Donetsk’s Luiz Adriano scoring more in the European elite competition.

Meanwhile, reigning champions Madrid, odds-on 4/9 favourites, will be hoping to ease past German side Schalke again with the help of fantastic French forward Benzema, who has been in fine form this term.

The great Galacticos goalscorer has struck 18 times in 35 outings for Carlo Ancelotti’s men during the current campaign, including three terrific efforts against Liverpool in group stage encounters.

Madrid’s in-form France international has scored as many European goals this term as teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, and will be confident of getting on the scoresheet again against Roberto Di Matteo’s Bundesliga side.

Brilliant Benzema is 9/2 to net the last goal, having ferociously fired in four goals in his last five games, including a recent delightful double against David Moyes’ Real Sociedad.
