Super Mario Mandzukic leads the way in anytime goalscorer treble

| 07.06.2013

What do you get when you cross a Champions League winner with a departing Los Blancos star and a Black Cats playboy?

The answer is an anytime goalscorer treble offering odds of just over 8/1.


Mario Mandzukic to score anytime against Scotland @ 11/10

There was a time when Bayern Munich fans referred to Mario Gomez as Super Mario but ever since the arrival of Mandzukic, the German has been relegated to the role of Nintendo’s perennial second-fiddle Luigi.

The Croat has enjoyed a stellar debut season in Bavaria, scoring 22 goals in 40 games for Die Roten – including the crucial opener in the Champions League final.

His record at international level is similarly impressive, with Mandzukic leading the Eastern European’s World Cup Qualifying charge with three strikes in his last four games.

With Scotland out of contention for a place at the finals, the 26-year-old could be one to watch for a goal at anytime with odds of 11/10 available.


Gonzalo Higuain to score anytime against Colombia @ 5/6

Higuain may depart Real Madrid this summer but Argentina will be hoping his magic touch in front of goal doesn’t desert him as well.

The 25-year-old has 20 goals in 32 games for La Albiceleste and leads the way in the scoring charts for World Cup 2014 qualifying with nine strikes.

At odds of 5/6, he offers better value than Lionel Messi and the France-born star will be eager to impress, with talk of moves to Arsenal or Juventus circulating.

His recent record in front of goal for Argentina also suggests he could do the business here, with Higuain registering three in their last three.


Connor Wickham to score anytime against Norway U21s @ 6/5

Paolo Di Canio once claimed that Wickham needed a slap to the face to help him realise his potential but you would be wise to slap some money on the striker realising his goalscoring potential here.

Norway have shipped six goals in their last three internationals and could be the perfect team to help England bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Italy.

Prior to that Azzurri defeat, Wickham had scored two in three for the Under-21 side and with one of those goals coming in a friendly victory over the Scandinavians, odds of 6/5 on the ex-Ipswich man look good.
