Back Neymar and Bale both to score anytime in Coral special

| 05.04.2014

Back both Champions League quarter-finals first leg scorers Neymar and Gareth Bale to deliver again, in their respective La Liga matches against Real Betis and Real Sociedad, with a fantastic price of 10/3.

Barcelona host basement club Betis as the Catalan giants look certain to continue their run of four straight league victories. Tata Martino’s men are heavily odds-on to win again at 1/16, and with an average of 3.75 goals in those games, can be backed at 10/11 to net over 3.5.

Neymar was on the scoresheet in the reverse fixture, back in November, as Barca came out 4-1 victors. The tricky forward is odds-on at 10/11 to get a goal anytime again, or 7/2 to net two or more. Coral’s price of 14/1 suggests another 4-1 result for the hosts.

The 22-year-old has been in fine form all season, helping his side with 15 goals and as many assists in 36 games in all competitions. Barca now find themselves one point behind league leaders Atletico Madrid, and Coral rate them odds-on favourites to win their second consecutive title at 8/11.

Welsh wizard Bale has really impressed since his world record transfer to Real Madrid in the summer. His return of 17 goals and 16 assists in 31 La Liga and Champions League matches have now just about justified his reported £85m move.

Madrid won 5-1 when they faced Sociedad at the Bernabeu earlier in the season, with Bale setting up a goal. But with five goals in his previous six in Europe’s elite competition, and two for his club in their last league game, you can back him at 5/4 to net anytime, or 6/1 to bag another brace or better.

Real are now third in La Liga – three points off top – following their recent Clasico defeat to Barca and loss to Sevilla, but are second-favourites to regain the title at 5/2. They are odds-on to win at 4/7 at Sociedad, however.
