A Real Madrid win over Juventus, available at 28/17 with bwin, would send Carlo Ancelotti’s side through at the head of Group B should Galatasaray fail to beat FC Copenhagen.
Their Turin hosts are rated as 7/5 shots to pick up three much needed points, while a share of the spoils can be backed at 13/5.
But all eyes should be firmly trained on the goalscorer markets for the night, as the game comes tagged with bwin’s double and triple money promise.
The pledge means that should a first or anytime scorer punt be successful, then the windfall is doubled, then tripled, if that player goes on to score two or three goals in the game, providing two free chances to hop onboard Cristiano Ronaldo’s 11/10 anytime scorer gravy train.
Madrid’s scoring sensation has only bagged the first goal of the game four times this season.
While Ronaldo scoring is more regular than flight activity at Heathrow, backing him to notch first is often a misguided temptation as he’s achieved it just four times in 17 appearances for Real and Portugal this season.
Instead the far more secure punt for the Juve clash is on his price to score anytime, something he’s achieved an incredible 23 times in those 17 outings.
Ronaldo has gone on to score two or more goals in a game 67 percent of the time during the campaign.
There is quite simply no player that will trot onto the Juventus Stadium turf more reliable in bagging a brace or hat-trick than the Madrid man.
Gareth Bale has only managed to do it nine times since the start of the 2011/12 season while Carlos Tevez hasn’t bagged a single goal, let alone two or more, in this competition since April 2009.
Since the Argentine’s Champions League drought began, his former Manchester United teammate has hammered home 14 Champions League doubles or better in the same time frame.
CR7 netted both Madrid goals in the 2-1 win over Juve on matchday three.
There hasn’t been a Champions League game that Ronaldo hasn’t scored at least two goals in this season. He kicked off the campaign with a hat-trick against Galatasaray before bagging half of Madrid’s tally in a 4-0 win over Copenhagen.
