Bet of The Day

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic struck in the first leg over Denmark
  • The PSG marksman has netted 13 goals for club and country this term
  • Sweden looking to reach sixth ever Euro finals

Zlatan scores first at 4/1

Euro 2016 qualifying reaches its final stage, as the play-off second legs take place to decide the full line-up for France next summer. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has already helped fire Sweden to a 2-1 first leg lead, and Coral’s bet of the day comes in this PSG marksman to open the scoring for his nation at a tasty 4/1.

For this brilliant bet of the day, you can back Sweden’s seemingly unstoppable sharpshooter to fire them towards glory once again by opening proceedings, and to a spot at the France finals, as they enter this second leg encounter with an encouraging lead.

Rampant run

Ibrahimovic has been in sublime form throughout Euro 2016 qualifying, dispatching eight goals in his eight outings in Group G, before then firing in a vital play-off first leg goal from the penalty spot against Denmark.

After his crucial spot-kick on home turf, the Ligue 1 frontman will look to add to that impressive tally of nine qualifying strikes in Denmark, where he should cement his position as a national hero by firing his side to their sixth European Championship.

Having already given former Liverpool centre back Daniel Agger a torrid time during their first leg clash at home, Ibrahimovic knows exactly what he needs to do to exploit the Danish defence once again in his latest international outing.

Zlatan can inspire

The confident poacher has already netted an impressive 13 times this current campaign for both club and country, including four in as many games since the end of October, and he will undoubtedly be ready to shine again.

Sweden’s stalwart skipper also opened proceedings in a domestic league encounter with Bastia last month, eventually ending the game with a brilliant brace. He opened the scoring in his nation’s final Group G game against Moldova too, so make sure you back Ibrahimovic to strike first against Denmark at 4/1 in our unmissable bet of the day.
