Cristiano Ronaldo needs no introduction and no second invitation to find the net either, which is brilliant news indeed for Ladbrokes’ customers given the bookmaker’s latest price boost.
Ladbrokes have enhanced Real Madrid’s Ballon d’Or winner from 3/1 out to 4/1 to open the scoring against Liverpool during their televised Group B clash at Anfield.
This price looks as tasty as a pack of sausages on a string does to a ravenous canine, given the sort of scoring touch Ronaldo finds himself in heading to Merseyside.
Goal-scoring records are two-a-penny to the Portuguese, although the way the former Manchester United ace has started this season, yet more history could be made by the 29-year-old during 2014/15.
The darling of the Bernabeu has now scored in 10 consecutive games for club and country, racking up three hat-tricks and 18 goals during that mesmerising stretch and 19 for Los Meringues all-told.
Incidentally, an Anfield hat-trick for CR7 can be backed at odds of 12/1, which is certainly sure to tempt a few of the braver punters given Ronaldo would need a separate house to store all his match balls.
Furthermore, in his last three matches the Madrid man has popped the scoring lid on the contest.
Then there’s the added bonus of Liverpool’s suspect defence. The Reds’ backline is probably going to be as unresisting of Ronaldo’s golden touch as any in Europe’s top competition right now.
Liverpool’s clean sheet at Tottenham way back in August remains Simon Mignolet and co’s only shut-out all season in 11 games.
