Messi and Ibrahimovic in Coral scorer double special

| 18.02.2014

Coral are offering enticing odds 4/1 for Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic of PSG to score anytime in their Champions League away matches to Manchester City and Bayer Leverkusen respectively.

The two goal-scoring kings are in fabulous form this season once more and, with both fit and ready to unleash their fury against their underdog opponents, what a great chance get some winnings.

Sweden’s international hero Ibrahimovic averages two goals in each of his last four Champions League games this season, and you can back him at 4/1 to get a double or more, or evens to score anytime.

PSG’s giant forward has scored 37 times in as many games for club and country this term. He is second in the Champions League goal charts for the current campaign and has odds of 3/1 to finish top.

Ibrahimovic is currently only one goal behind Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, who is odds-on at 1/2 to win the golden boot.

Majestic Messi, although he has only played in three games, also has a one in two Champions League goal-scoring record this season. Back him at 6/1 to bag a brace or more, or 6/5 to net anytime.

The Argentine superstar doesn’t have the best of records against English clubs by his usual standards, having scored eight in 18, but has never played against Man City in a competitive match. He will be looking carry on the momentum of his form, of five goals in his last three La Liga matches, when he travels to the Etihad.

Messi has never scored on English soil – except at Wembley in the 2011 Champions League final victory over Man Utd – so that unfortunate stat will spur on La Liga’s new joint-third all time scorer.
