Real Madrid man boosted for another opener against Liverpool
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in 13 consecutive games for club and country, managing to notch an astonishing 21 goals in that time.
Those stats go some way to explain why Ladbrokes have priced the Portuguese up at a minuscule 4/11 to score at any time when Real Madrid entertain Liverpool in the Champions League.
Ladbrokes customers looking for some better Ronaldo-based scoring odds will probably head to the first goal scorer market for the match, where they will find the former Manchester United forward heading the betting at 9/4.
Except there is better news than that, as the bookie has taken the decision to boost that price to 11/4 for the visit of Brendan Rodgers’ men.
The same move was made for the reverse fixture at Anfield, in which the 29-year-old obliged by scoring this sublime effort:
On that occasion the strike saw a payout on enhanced 4/1 odds and the forward’s form since suggests he’s a prime candidate to get the ball rolling again.
A goal against Barcelona to cancel out Neymar’s early effort was followed by a two-minute strike against Granada last time out.
Of the Ballon d’Or holder’s 22 all-competition goals, six have been the first of the game.
