Price Boost: Sergio Aguero out to 9/1 to net first vs Bayern Munich
With six goals in six appearances in last season’s Champions League, few strikers are worth backing to net first more than Sergio Aguero.
And as the diminutive Argentina prepares to take to the field in Munich for his side’s first match in the completion, Ladbrokes have a monster price boost to get stuck into.
You can now get Aguero at a huge 9/1 (from 7/1) to open the scoring at the Allianz-Arena on Wednesday night.
Having last season become the most deadly striker on a goals per minute ration, the Manchester City man has begun this campaign in much the same style.
A late goal on the opening weekend against Newcastle has subsequently been added to by strikes against Liverpool and Arsenal, taking his tally to three in four Premier League games.
One snippet that backers could latch onto is that the former Atlético man scored in Argentina’s 4-2 victory against Germany.
After already putting one past Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer this month, there’s little to suggest he is in the mood to take off his shooting boots.
His clinical nature has been well documented and with over 52 per cent of his attempts hitting the target, his credentials to break the deadlock are plain to see.
A strong performance from the number 16 could be key if the Citizens are to record back-to-back triumphs on their visits to Munich, having triumphed in the Group stage here back in December.
The north-west side are 4/1 to defeat the German champions, with Bayern the heavy favourites at 4/6, and a draw available at 3/1.
Having flattered to deceive in the competition last season, Pellegrini and co will need to deliver more consistent performances if they are to get their hands on the prestigious trophy, with a price of 12/1 indicative of their perceived chance to be victorious.
