Juventus and Real Madrid talismen get hefty price boosts


Whether it’s Real Madrid or Juventus that win the Champions League semi-final second leg at the Bernabeu, it’s very difficult to imagine the pair’s two talisman not playing a huge part in the victory.

Carlos Tevez has already had a big say in the tie, notching from the penalty spot to cancel out Cristiano Ronaldo’s leveller in Turin and hand the Italians a 2-1 win.

Heading to Spain with a spot in the Champions League final just 90 minutes away, the Old Lady will once again want their Argentine striker to make an impact in proceedings, as will Ladbrokes customers.

That’s because the bookie has enhanced the Tevez/Juve wincast price from 8/1 to 10s ahead of the match.

Although those odds are only available for a victory gained in 90 minutes, there is likely to be a few takers considering the form the one-time Manchester United man has been in.

Similarly, there will be those that think Tevez’s former teammate, and current Ballon d’Or holder Ronaldo, will stamp his authority on proceedings. Well Ladbrokes have that camp covered too, by enhancing the Ronaldo/Real wincast from 5/4 to 7/4 (for 90-minute wins only).

The Portuguese goal-getter, who has 56 goals in 54 games for club and country this season, has notched in 26 Los Bloncos triumphs in all competitions this term.

However, no team has ever retained their Champions League crown since the competition took on its current guise, meaning it could pay to side with Tevez, Juventus and the longer odds on this occasion.
