With the Champions League final on the horizon, we have a host of special markets for European club football’s showpiece occasion, but two in particular warrant attention.
Robert Lewandowski’s four-goal haul against Real Madrid was one of the finest individual performances in Champions League history, and more than countered forDortmund’s second-leg defeat in the Bernabeu.
The Polish striker has been a revelation for Dortmund after signing from Lech Poznan in 2010 for less than 5m euros and is now one of the most in-demand strikers in Europe.
That mega performance against Jose Mourinho’s men was the seventh time Lewandowski has been Dortmund’s sole goalscorer this season as Jurgen Klopp’s side finished second in the Bundesliga.
The 24-year-old has been little short of sensational this season, firing in 36 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions and a remarkable tally of 10 strikes from 12 matches in this year’s Champions League.
We are 14/1 that Borussia Dortmund win the Champions League Final and Lewandowski is their only scorer on the night.
Another of our specials is Arjen Robben to score the winner for Bayern Munich in the last ten minutes of normal time and extra time at 10/1.
The flying Dutchman often comes into his own in the second half of matches, with full-backs across Europe growing tired at his constant pace and trickery.
Each of the ex-Chelsea man’s last three goals for Bayern have come in the second half and he scored the winner in the German Cup match over Dortmund in February.
Robben will no doubt have vivid memories of last year’s final, which only came to life in the final 10 minutes, with both Bayern and eventual winners Chelsea netting with the 90 minutes looming.
