We’re heading towards the midway point of this season’s Champions League group stage, with the likes of Liverpool and Roma facing daunting tasks at home to Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, the last two winners of Europe’s top trinket.
It may pay to swerve the bigger games though, as there’s easy meat on the punting menu this week, with a wager on the three likely scorers below promising to pay out at over 10/1, all going well.
Danny Welbeck to score for Arsenal against Anderlecht @ 6/5
This former Manchester United forward has proved a Gunners bargain already, with eight goals for club and country since signing on at the Emirates for the relatively trifling sum of £16m seven weeks ago.
Welbeck saved his new side’s blushes at home to Hull at the weekend, with a 90th-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw, and after grabbing a hat-trick at home to Galatasaray in this competition last time out, the 23-year-old deserves to be Arsenal’s prime scorer pick.
Sergio Aguero to score for Manchester City against CSKA Moscow @ 4/5
Aguero has scored 10 times in as many 2014/15 matches for the Premier League champions, including all four in the 4-1 Etihad thrashing of Spurs over the weekend.
The Argentine hot-shot also grabbed both his side’s goals in the 2-1 win away to CSKA at this stage of the Champions League last term, before claiming another brace in the home match against Leonid Slutsky’s men 12 months ago.
Carlos Tevez to score for Juventus against Olympiakos @ 9/5
The City hitman’s some-time Albiceleste partner-in-crime scored his first Champions League goals since April 2009, when he still sported the red of Man United, with a double in the Old Lady’s 2-0 matchweek one win at home to Malmo.
Like Aguero, the 30-year-old is firing at a rate of a goal per game so far this term, with both Atalanta and Scudetto challengers Roma also finding themselves on the end of Tevez braces since the end of September.
Olympiakos have conceded twice in both their Champions League Group A fixtures so far, and let in another couple last time out in the Greek Super League away to Ergolis.
