Hitman Treble: Mandzukic picked to lead the way for Croatia tonight
The bumper week-long feast of international football starts to wind down this evening, but not before we bring you another enhanced acca opportunity.
With tonight’s Hitman Treble boosted from a price of 5/1 to 8/1, there really is no reason you can’t kick off your working week with a win.
Wales’ main man Gareth Bale leads the way, alongside a couple of other reliable stars for their country, Mario Mandzukic and Robin van Persie, so read on to find out why each one should keep up their respective part of the bargain.
He may not have been able to help his Welsh side claim an impressive three points against Bosnia last week, but Bale remains the shining light in this Red Dragons line-up.
Having scored Wales’ last three goals, the Real Madrid man will be at the forefront of all attacking activity at the Cardiff City Stadium.
The Atlético man scored both goals as Croatia saw off Cyprus in a friendly last month and must be fancied to net against an Azerbaijan side that have conceded eight times in their last three matches.
Mandzukic hasn’t bagged a competitive goal for his nation since his brace against Cameroon at the World Cup, but only once has the big man gone four competitive starts without scoring for the Vatreni and will be keen to stop that occurring for a second time.
While he may not be tearing up any trees in the Premier League this season, Robin van Persie continues to be a vital threat for the Dutch national side.
He has two goals to his name in the three qualifiers so far and will be desperate to prove to Louis van Gaal that he still has what it takes to succeed at both club and international level.
With 13 goals in his last 18 internationals, the Manchester United striker is certainly going the best way about it.
