Estonia vs Ireland: Ladbrokes offer best prices on goal markets
Ladbrokes are offering punters the best prices available on all correct score and first scorer markets for Ireland’s crucial play-off game against Estonia this Friday.
Ireland had a fantastic defensive record during their Euro 2012 qualifying games – and that knowledge could help lead to a big payout.
Giovanni Trapattoni’s men only conceded seven goals in their ten Group B games – and three of those came in a narrow 3-2 defeat against Russia over a year ago.
Ireland have shipped just one goal in their previous five European Championship qualifiers, while Estonia have not kept a single clean sheet in their previous ten games.
With Ireland winning three of their previous four away games 2-0, backing the same score at 10/1 this time looks an extremely tempting bet.
Meanwhile, with Shane Long, Leon Best and Kevin Doyle all missing for Ireland, the burden of scoring goals falls on the shoulders of one man – Robbie Keane.
If there is a player capable of living with that burden though, it’s Keane.
The LA Galaxy striker is his country’s record goalscorer and found the net for his club over the weekend.
Backing Keane – who has scored 51 goals in 112 games for the Republic – to find the net first at 7/1 could prove to be a lucrative punt.
