The Champions League swings back into view tonight, with a number of the continent’s top sides battling to secure their places in the last 16.
As ever, there’s plenty of opportunities for football betting fans to make money from Europe’s elite club competition and we’ve identified an anytime goalscorer treble which could bring winnings of £266.20 for anyone backing it with their free £25 bet for joining bwin.com. Read on to see why our three chosen hitmen look set to make the net bulge on Tuesday evening.
Javier Hernandez to score against Benfica @ 6/5
For just £6million, Javier Hernandez has been a revelation in just under 18 months at Manchester United and the little Mexican can help the Red Devils secure qualification with a goal at Old Trafford tonight. Chicharito has five goals this term despite injury problems and with a goal in each of his last two games, the man who always seems to be in the right place at the right time can net for a United side who have failed to score at home just once in all competitions since December 2009.
Sergio Aguero to score vs. Napoli @ 6/5
Sergio Aguero may be in line for a hero’s reception when Manchester City travel to Napoli tonight, but he can turn those cheers to jeers by scoring at the San Paolo. The son-in-law of Diego Maradona will be welcomed with open arms by the home fans, who still idolise the Argentinean for his hugely successful spell at the club in the mid-80’s, but with ten City goals already this season Aguero can leave his own mark with an important goal. He scored the vital winner against Villarreal in October and can add to his four previous Champions League goals.
Alexander Frei to score vs. Galati @ 6/5
Wily veteran Alexander Frei can continue his fine Champions League campaign with a goal for Basel in Romania tonight. Hosts Galati are making a decent fist of their debut season in Europe’s top competition, but Basel should have too much for them and, as ever, Frei is their main man. The Swiss international has three Champions League goals this season to add to the 11 he has scored domestically. You have to go back to May to find the last time Basel failed to score away from home, and Frei can keep that run going.
