Mario Mandzukic and Alexis Sanchez in sensational 6/1 scoring special!

| 25.02.2015

Coral’s magnificent midweek specials continue as we present Mario Mandzukic and Alexis Sanchez in a stunning 6/1 anytime Champions League scoring special.

Arsenal take on Monaco, with Sanchez looking to add to his terrific tally of three goals in five European outings this term. His teammate Santi Cazorla has been singing the Chilean’s praises recently, with the 26-year-old 6/5 to score anytime against the French side.

“He’s the best signing in the Premier League,” Cazorla said. “There were plenty of good signings – like Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas – but Alexis Sanchez has been huge for us.

“He’s ambitious, he wants to get better with every training session, and it was positive for him to leave Barcelona. He’s now playing with another mindset and he’s playing fantastically.”

“Alexis is as intense and annoying in training as he is on the pitch,” Cazorla continued. “He’s so into football that he doesn’t want training to finish.

“Sometimes the manager is calling it off because training is over and Alexis is always kind of sad, because he loves to play football. His work ethic is a really positive influence for all of us.”

Mandzukic, meanwhile, has netted two goals in two home games for Bayern Munich against next opponents Bayer Leverkusen, in his career as well as one in three for Wolfsburg. This means that he has dispatched in each of the last three seasons (2014/13, 2012/13 and 2011/12) against the Bundesliga outfit.

A sensational statistic if ever there was one. Add to the fact that the Croatian striker has struck 20 times in 32 appearances this campaign, including five in six Champions League matches, and that explains his 7/4 anytime scorer odds.

When Atleti last scored in the Champions League, Mandzukic slammed in a hat-trick as the Spanish side beat Olympiakos 4-1, and previously in La Liga he opened the scoring in the comprehensive victory over Almeria.
