Majestic Muller and poacher Van Persie in 9/1 scorer double
Coral are offering a fantastic deal for talismanic Thomas Muller and rampant Robin van Persie at 9/1 both to score in 90 minutes, as Germany clash with Brazil and the Netherlands face Argentina, in their respective World Cup semi-final clashes.
Muller, currently Die Mannschaft’s top scorer with four goals and two assists in five games, has been one of the most ruthless and determined players on show at the tournament. Playing as a false nine for his nation, the adaptable forward has been illustrating his poaching prowess in Brazil, and is 10/1 to net two or more against the Samba Boys, or 33/1 to hit a hat-trick.
A true predator, marvellous Muller, 13/2 to fire home first against the hosts, has scored 21 times in 54 caps, with nine goals at World Cup finals making him somewhat of a tournament specialist.
Having secured the Man of the Match award in two of his five appearances in Brazil so far, Muller is a man for the big games, and the sensational sniper is 9/2 to be World Cup top scorer.
Van Persie, 10/1 to score two or more, will lead his nation against Argentina, who the Netherlands are 12/5 to defeat, after the flying Dutchman coolly dispatched a penalty past Costa Rica in a tense quarter-final shootout.
The Clockwork Orange captain, 33/1 to hit a hat-trick, has netted three times in five games in Brazil, and is 16/1 to beat German sharpshooter Muller to tournament top scorer.
Now 6/5 to qualify for the final and secure a potential grudge match classic against eternal European rivals Germany, Louis van Gaal’s side have not suffered defeat in eight games.
Van Persie, with the swashbuckling support of Arjen Robben, has been crucial in an impressive run which included the demolition of World Cup holders Spain, where the Red Devil netted twice.
With the Dutch 7/2 to win the tournament, Van Persie, 13/2 to fire home first for his nation, will be eager to cement his place in the history books, having already become his country’s all-time top scorer.
