Coral’s bet of the day

  • Portugal open their Group F campaign against Iceland
  • Cristiano Ronaldo enters Euro 2016 after third Champions League win
  • The Portugal skipper tucked home the winning penalty in the final
  • Ronaldo scored an incredible 51 goals in 50 outings in the past season

Ronaldo 9/4 to open scoring for Portugal

The first set of Euro 2016 group fixtures come to a conclusion on Tuesday tonight as Portugal clash with Iceland, and it’s from this encounter that Coral’s latest bet of the day comes from, with Cristiano Ronaldo 9/4 to open proceedings at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.

Portugal are seen as the front runners for Group F and will be confident of earning three points here against a nation that they have never lost to in two previous meetings, winning comfortably in those encounters by two goals.

In the first ever of those clashes between these countries, Cristiano Ronaldo struck the opening goal after just three minutes played and, after his incredible form in the season past, he is sure to be firing on all cylinders for this latest international outing.

Real Madrid marksman key to success

Ronaldo will lead his nation out for their opener against Iceland on the back of a truly remarkable season with Real Madrid, having netted an amazing 51 goals in all competitions for both club and country, and he will look to maintain that rampant record this time out.

From his 50 campaign appearances, Ronaldo was the first goalscorer in 13 games, a superb record which he looks more than capable of continuing in France for his country.

The all-time Los Blancos marksman is seen as one of the favourites to clinch this summer’s Golden Boot after huge success at club level, so make sure to back Portugal’s prolific hitman to open proceedings at a promising 9/4!
