Hitman Treble: Three of the world’s best enhanced to strike
With the task of picking the three best strikers in the world right now, you will struggle to do much better than the trio of Diego Costa, Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi.
And bearing that in mind, it seems only right that those three are the make-up of Ladbrokes’ weekend Hitman Treble.
Instead of 15/8, from 8am on Saturday you can get a whopping 11/4 on all three finding the net for their teams.
They may not need much introducing, but we’ve had a look at some of the numbers that make this enhancement one that you simply cannot miss.
Diego Costa to score vs Burnley
He may have had to sit out three matches after his well documented stamping incident, but now he’s back and with Stamford Bridge a happy hunting ground, can punish Sean Dyche’s men.
The Spain international netted in the reverse fixture, but it is his form in west London that makes him interesting.
Having netted in his last four Premier League appearances at the Bridge he has now netted 13 times in 11 league games on home soil.
Sergio Aguero to score vs Newcastle
Twice on the scoresheet in Manchester City’s 4-1 victory over Stoke last time out, few players have a better strike-rate in the Premier League.
And Newcastle are one of the teams the man they call ‘Kun’ has inflicted most pain on over the years.
With four goals in five league appearances against the Magpies the Argentine will certainly leading the Citizens’ front-line.
Lionel Messi to score vs Malaga
If any other player netted 27 goals in 20 matches, they would be described as being in red-hot form, instead it’s just Lionel Messi being Lionel Messi.
The little maestro has only failed to score in one of his last 10 matches and Malaga are set to be on the receiving end of a rampant Barcelona side.
The Nou Camp outfit are collectively proving hard to stop, with 11 straight victories, scoring 42 goals in the process, and are sure to provide Messi with ample opportunities to strike.
