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.
Sadio Mane –
Only Cristiano Ronaldo has a better goal-to-game ratio in this season’s Champions League than Sadio Mane, after the Liverpool forward’s hat-trick against Porto in the first leg.
And having scored in both Liverpool matches since, the Senegalese is the value pick to find the net in this one.
Porto have kept just one clean sheet in five, and will leave gaps in defence as they try to at least restore some pride from the tie.
Edinson Cavani –
With Neymar injured, the responsibility is with Edinson Cavani to get PSG back into this tie.
The Uruguayan is the top scorer in Ligue 1, scored five goals in the group stages and will be on penalty duty in the absence of his Brazilian team-mate.
Real Madrid are without a clean sheet in five away matches, and Cavani is the best bet to take advantage of that fragility on Tuesday.
Leroy Sane –
Sane is yet to score in the Champions League this season, but Wednesday’s game against Basel offers him the perfect opportunity to end that barren run.
The German came to life at Arsenal on Thursday, laying on two goals and scoring the third, before excelling in Sunday’s win over Chelsea.
With four goals in 2018, the 22-year-old should play his part in another rout for Pep Guardiola’s side.
Dele Alli –
In what has been a quiet season, Dele Alli has reserved his best performances for the biggest matches.
Having been banned for the first three games, he introduced himself to this season’s Champions League with a brace against Real Madrid at Wembley in October.
The 21-year-old was also impressive in the first leg of this tie, and is a big price to turn his influence into a goal on Wednesday.
