Lionel Messi has scored six times in his past seven matches against Barcelona’s biggest rivals Real Madrid.
Of those six, two came in last season’s Champions League semi-final first leg, when the diminutive schemer hit a brace at Santiago Bernabeu.
Now, the newly-crowned Ballon D’or winner for a third consecutive year can repeat his goalscoring exploits at the home of the reigning Copa del Rey champions.
The Argentinian forward is 7/2 to score the first or last goal in the game and if he strikes at any time in the 90 minutes, then all losing first goalscorer bets will be refunded.
Real’s Cristiano Ronaldo, with 21 league goals to his name already, is available at 7/2 in the football odds to score the opener, while 16-goal Cesc Fabregas, who scored in the league meeting between the sides, looks too big at 8/1.
Punters should remember that Messi hit over 50 goals in all competitions last season, and with 19 already this term, this offer looks absolutely unmissable.
