4 anytime goalscorer tips for the Champions League this week
These picks represent good value to find the net in the second-round fixtures on Tuesday and Wednesday. If you fancy them all, back the 30/1 acca.
Marcus Rashford –
After a brace against Liverpool on Saturday, Rashford is a nice bet to score in back-to-back games for the fourth time this season.
Eight of the 20-year-old’s 12 goals this term have come at Old Trafford, while he’s also netted three in the Champions League group stages despite starting just two matches.
Sevilla have only kept clean sheets at Malaga, Espanyol – both of whom are in the bottom half of La Liga – and second-tier opponents in their last 18 away matches.
Edin Dzeko –
After sitting out Friday’s 3-0 win over Torino due to suspension, Dzeko should come back fresh to lead the line for Roma on Tuesday.
The Serb scored twice in his last game against Napoli – goals that, along with the three he scored in the group stages, once again proved his ability to influence big matches.
Shakhtar are yet to keep a clean sheet in the Champions League this season, so the striker can take advantage to net his 17th goal of the campaign.
Thomas Muller –
Muller has scored three goals in three Champions League appearances since Bayern replaced Carlo Ancelotti with Jupp Heynckes as manager, and another is on the cards at Besiktas.
The German has netted four times in his last five starts for the Bundesliga leaders, and has found the net in the last-16 second leg in two of the last three seasons.
Besiktas must try and find a way to reverse a seemingly insurmountable 5-0 deficit, which should result in space being left for the 28-year-old to add to his brace in the reverse fixture.
Luis Suarez –
Suarez is in phenomenal form at the Nou Camp, scoring 10 goals in his last nine home appearances.
And, having added to his hat-trick against Girona at the end of last month with the opener at Malaga on Saturday, the Uruguayan is nicely tuned up for this one.
Chelsea have conceded nine goals in their last four away games, as well as four goals on the road at Atletico Madrid and Roma in the group stages.
