Bet now on Coral’s £20 max stake markets for World Cup semis

| 08.07.2014

Coral are back with even more enhanced matchday markets for customers that carry a maximum stake of £20. This time the World Cup semi-finals between Brazil and Germany, and Argentina and the Netherlands are featured.

Our boosted prices are live right now (click on the hyperlinked text below) and will be available right up until kick-off (21:00 UK time).

Brazil v Germany
It’s 11/2 that this first semi-final goes to penalties. The World Cup hosts needed a shoot-out to get past Chile in the last 16, while Die Mannschaft have a formidable record if it does go to a lethal lottery.

A Brazilian victory in 90 minutes and both sides scoring, meanwhile, is enhanced from 11/2 to 6/1. Three of the five matches played by Phil Scolari’s Samba Boys at these finals have seen this combination occur.

Alternatively, Germany to win in normal time and both teams being on target is boosted up to 13/2 from 11/2. With Brazil star Neymar out injured and skipper Thiago Silva banned, Joachim Low’s lads have a great chance to get over the penultimate hurdle.

Argentina v Netherlands
Like the Brazil v Germany game above, odds of 11/2 say this second semi will go the distance and have to be decided by spot kicks. The Dutch needed a shoot-out to get past Costa Rica in the quarter-finals, and have Tim Krul ready to come off the bench and thwart Argentine stars.

Coral also have a couple of enhanced wincasts available so, depending on who you fancy, there’s a boosted 3/1 price (from 9/4) on Lionel Messi netting anytime and Argentina winning in 90 minutes.

Alejandro Sabella’s skipper has scored four times at this tournament, finally silencing doubters that he could not perform on the grandest stage. Messi has hit 23 goals in 24 caps since the start of 2012, so has really come into his own as an international footballer.

Conversely, there’s an enhanced 5/1 price (from 9/2) on Robin van Persie netting anytime and the Netherlands being victorious in normal time. RVP is Clockwork Orange’s all-time leading marksman and has already scored some sensational goals at this tournament.
