Toure and Rooney get Champions League price boost treatment
Ladbrokes are at it again folks. Make sure you don’t miss out on two tantalising price hikes as Manchester United travel to Shakhtar Donetsk and neighbours Manchester City host the European champions Bayern Munich.
Prices really don’t get much juicier than 14/1 on a Premier League club’s current top scorer to grab the first goal of any game, but this is what Ladbrokes are offering on Yaya Toure to draw first blood against Bayern, out from 12/1 originally.
Man City’s marauding Ivorian has started this season in scintillating goal-scoring form, hitting the net six times in just eight appearances in all competitions.
Forget Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko, Stevan Jovetic and Alvaro Negredo, City’s midfield maestro is eclipsing them all so far.
Toure has now scored four in his last four starts – including their opening Champions League game against Viktoria Plzen, where he curled in a stunner – and he even grabbed the first goal of the game in City’s last outing at Aston Villa.
Meanwhile, across the continent Wayne Rooney will be in action for United as they look to bounce back from their latest setback and Wazza’s odds have also received a timely boost to notch first in the Donbass Arena, now at 7/1, out from 11/2 until the game kicks off.
Like Toure, United’s number 10 has tapped into a rich vein of form, notching five times in as many starts ahead of this meeting with Shakhtar.
Furthermore, the England man has already lifted the lid on the scoring in the Champions League this season, bagging the opener at Old Trafford in that 4-2 win over Bayer Leverkusen and also scored on his last visit to the Donbass Arena with England at Euro 2012.
