Back superstars Sanchez and Costa to grab continental goals

England’s top clubs have been back on Premier League duty, but now it’s time for the big-guns to turn their attention to Europe. The Champions League returns to TV screens this week, and Coral have some superb specials on offer to heighten excitement.

Indulging in this superb scorer double could see profits pocketed by punters, as deadly duo Alexis Sanchez and Diego Costa are priced at sensational odds of 7/1 both to score anytime in their upcoming continental clashes.

This prolific pair will both be playing for respective clubs Arsenal and Chelsea on Tuesday night, as the Gunners tussle with Bayern Munich and the Blues battle Dynamo Kiev. Here are a hat-full of reasons to back this brilliant value bet…

First up, it is no wonder Sanchez takes the leading role in this double, having proven so deadly for the Gunners in recent weeks. Such an exciting player to watch in full-flight, the Chile talisman has clocked-up a devastatingly efficient six strikes in his past three league games.

Though Sanchez has been no slouch in Europe either, having tallied one goal and two assists in just two continental outings for Arsenal. With such clinical finishing, acceleration and speed at his dangerous disposal, Pep Guardiola’s guys will be prime for picking off on the counter by Sanchez, should both sides get tired of possession play.

Perhaps with a point to prove against his former coach, sparkling Sanchez, so in-form at the moment, will make a formidable foe for the Munich men.

Costa’s character crucial for Mourinho

And last, but by no means least, Costa combines with Sanchez to make this sublime scorer special even more tempting for a midweek flutter.

The bullish Brazil-born striker tallied up a goal and assist last time out against Aston Villa, and is already off the mark in Europe, which is enough to give Dynamo’s defence a headache.

After his inspiring outing versus Villa, boss Jose Mourinho was quick to compliment his formidable forward, stating: “Sometimes personality qualities add something to the team. Diego isn’t a leader in the dressing room – he doesn’t even speak English well to be fluent – but in the game, the way he plays, the way he gives his body to the cause – it is always punished – is brilliant.”

With this added endorsement of Costa from the the ‘Special One’, this wager looks more than worth placing a stake on. Don’t miss out!
