Neymar and James Rodriguez both to score in 90 mins at 11/2

| 28.06.2014

Coral offer grossly enhanced odds of 11/2 for both 22-year-olds Brazilian magician Neymar and Colombia’s main man James Rodriguez both to score in 90 minutes in their respective last 16 matches against fellow South Americans Chile and Uruguay.

The duo have managed seven goals between them so far this World Cup in the group stages, and this special really does look too enticing not to take, given the fact the former is priced at 8/11 to net anytime, and the latter 6/5.

Neymar has already found the net four times in his debut World Cup (leading the way with Lionel Messi and Thomas Muller), more than half of Brazil’s total, getting braces against both Croatia and Cameroon. He is 3/1 to get two or more again in normal time against Chile, while he is 5/2 to be tournament top scorer.

The Samba Boys are odds-on, both to qualify for the quarter-finals at 3/10 and to win the match in 90 minutes at 4/7. They are, meanwhile, favourites to lift their record sixth World Cup at 3/1.

Colombian attacker Rodriguez has been equally as impressive for his nation, stepping up to the plate so well in the absence of his Monaco clubmate Radamel Falcao.

Youngster Rodriguez has incredibly found the net once in each of his side’s three group games, against Greece, Ivory Coast and Japan, to help them top their pool with maximum points.

He is favourite for Colombia to score anytime in 90 minutes again at 6/5, and is priced at 6/1 to get two goals or more. Rodriguez is a good outside shout to be tournament leading marksman at 28/1, seeing as he is only one off the pace.

The Coffee Growers have really proved to the world they are a force to reckoned with, being on target nine times in the groups, and go up against a shell-shocked and Luis Suarez-less Uruguay in the last 16.

Colombia are odds on to qualify from this match at 4/7, and are 21/10 favourites for victory in 90 minutes. You can also back them to go all the way and win their first World Cup at 18/1.
