Coral’s bet of the day

  • Diego Costa been in fine form for Chelsea so far this season
  • The Spain frontman has netted twice in three Premier League outings already
  • Belgium’s defence was lacklustre at Euro 2016 as they were halted by Wales
  • Costa is looking to make an impact after returning to the Spain squad
  • Spain have beaten Belgium in the last five meetings

Costa to score anytime 19/10

The domestic action is currently on hold as the first international break of the season takes place, and it’s from a tasty tussle between Belgium and Spain that Coral’s latest bet of the day comes from this midweek.

Ahead of the action, punters can back Spain’s Brazilian-born frontman Diego Costa to get on the scoresheet anytime during the clash with Belgium at 19/10, as he looks to make an impact on his return to the national set-up.

The feisty Chelsea striker has been in fine form so far this season under new manager Antonio Conte, and he will be aiming to continue that domestic form onto the international scene in this Thursday night friendly encounter at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels.

Blues frontman Costa to strike past Belgium

Chelsea have benefited from the rejuvenated form of their previously reliant hitman Costa in the early stages of the season, with the Spain sharpshooter having dispatched two goals in three Premier League outings to date.

The revived forward netted an 89th minute winner to help the Blues sink West Ham United in their campaign opener at Stamford Bridge, then produced further heroics by dispatching another decisive late goal to earn victory over Watford too.

With Belgium’s defence having looked shaky at Euro 2016, when Home Nation Wales managed to rip them apart, Costa will be licking his lips in anticipation for this midweek match-up, after early season fortunes.

Spain have also overcome the Red Devils in their last five successive clashes, so confidence is high for Julen Lopetegui’s visitors, as they undergo a new era after Vicente del Bosque retired earlier this year.

So, with Costa set to spearhead a talented Spanish attack, make sure to back the Chelsea hitman to score anytime at 19/10 as Coral’s bet of the day!
