With the football season kicking off in France and Germany this weekend, it’s time once again to get back into the betting action with Ladbrokes.
And when it comes to football, good things really do come in threes with the terrifying trio of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Radamel Falcao and Arjen Robben offering odds of just over 13/2 as an anytime goalscorer treble.
Bayern Munich v Borussia Monchengladbach – Arjen Robben to score anytime @ 5/6
No doubt still on a high after his Champions League final winner, which put to bed doubts over Robben’s big-match credentials, the Dutchman looks a great shout to find the back of the net at the Allianz Arena this Friday.
Two goals in the German Super Cup against Dortmund, followed by a strike late-on in the Bavarian’s DFB Pokal Cup win over minnows Schwarz-Weiss Rehde showcased a man in form.
Add to that the fact that Robben registered a goal in Bayern’s last league meeting with Gladbach and odds of 5/6 look a steal.
Montpellier v Paris Saint Germain – Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score anytime @ 4/5
Undoubtedly the star of the show at the Parc Des Princes last term, Zlatan returns to action for PSG against Montpellier raring to go.
The big Swede notched up an impressive 30 goals in 34 appearances for the Parisiens last season and finished the campaign with a flourish, scoring three goals in the club’s last two league fixtures.
He’ll be keen to make a positive start here and re-establish himself as the main man of French football following the arrival of Monaco’s millions and is available at 4/5 to score anytime.
Bordeaux v Monaco – Radamel Falcao to score anytime @ evens
Whether Radamel Falcao is 27 or 29 is irrelevant – whatever his age, this is one striker that knows where the net is.
In 67 La Liga games with Atletico, the Colombian scored 52 goals. Add this to his tally of 41 in 51 for Porto and it’s clear that this is a man that should have no trouble scoring in Ligue 1 – as a recent brace in a friendly against Tottenham Hotspur further demonstrated.
A game against Bordeaux could be the perfect stage for Falcao to open his Ligue 1 account with Monaco given that Girondins have kept just one clean sheet in their last ten home games in the league.
