All eyes will be on Cardiff on Saturday for the Champions League Final and there’s little doubt with so much talent on display we could be set for fireworks in the Welsh Capital.
Squeakybumtime.com reports that there has already been plenty of money come in for Real Madrid and Christiano Ronaldo, with the Portuguese star predictably heading the market at 7/2 to find the net first, and that price is certain to shorten come match day.
Real Madrid First Goalscorer Odds
Ronaldo has been back to his best in recent months, securing the La Liga title for Real Madrid as well as being amongst the goals – he has already bagged 10 goals this Champions League campaign, including a hat trick in the the home leg against Atletico in the semi final, and it would take a shrewd punter to back against hime.
Next up is Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain, who has already fired in five Champions League goals so far in this campaign and has himself been finding the net on a regular occurance – bagging two against Monaco in France and the Italian is sure to see plenty of support at 4/1 to find the net first.
Those looking for a little more value could do worse than back Mario Mandzukic, who scored for Juventus last time out and can be backed at 8/1, a very handy price indeed, while Gareth Bale, if he starts for Real Madrid could be the difference at around 9/1.
With Juventus proving stubborn in defence it could be up a free kick or set piece, corner which makes the difference.
Ultimately, its Real Madrid and particularly Ronaldo who are attracting all the money his price is sure to shorten come Saturday.
