Back Benzema in Champions League goalscorer treble
When it comes to picking anytime goalscorers from the array of Champions League ties on offer this Wednesday, as De La Soul once told us, three really is the magic number.
And this week we’ve got a three-fold with odds of just over 6/1 if you are willing to back Edinson Cavani, Stefan Kiessling and Karim Benzema to find the net at any point during their respective fixtures in Europe’s premier competition.
After a slow start at the Parc des Princes, Cavani is beginning to look more like the player that PSG forked out €64 million for over the summer with three goals in Les Parisiens’ last four competitive games.
The Uruguayan is already off the mark in the Champions League, having netted in their group opener against Olympiakos, and will be confident of adding to that tally against a Benfica team that travels badly in Europe, and has kept just one clean sheet in its last five.
Cristiano Ronaldo may take most of the limelight when it comes to goalscoring at the Bernabéu but Karim Benzema remains a worthy shout to score against group minnows Copenhagen.
Incredibly, Copenhagen have failed to keep a clean sheet in 13 Danish league games and could be well and truly put to the sword against a Real side that won 6-1 away at Galatasaray last time out in this competition, with the French ace scoring twice.
Kiessling may have failed to get off the mark at Old Trafford but the Leverkusen front man is an entirely different prospect on German soil.
The 29-year-old has averaged a goal a game in Bundesliga matches played at the BayArena this term and he will fancy his chances of adding to that tally against an out-of-sorts Sociedad.
Winless in six games, the Spaniards have shipped nine goals during that time, including a 2-0 defeat to Shakhtar at home on Matchday one.
