Real Madrid have only failed to trouble the scoresheet once in their last 35 games and Spanish international Isco’s potent start to life at the Bernabeu makes him a great candidate at 6/1 to open the scoring when Juventus visit in Champions League Group B.
Mesut Ozil’s replacement in the Los Blancos first team has started the season in fine form, scoring five times in his first ten starts for the club and with bwin’s money back special stakes will be returned on all losing first goalscorer, correct score, player to score two or more and player to score three or more bets if prolific Real goal-getters Cristiano Ronaldo or Karim Benzema find the net during the match.
The hosts are 2/5 to keep a stranglehold on Group B by taking all three points here, with Juventus 4/1 for the win and the draw 3/1.
Either Ronaldo, Benzema or both have scored in each of Real’s last ten Champions League matches.
The bwin money back special for this fixture is particularly generous considering Los Blancos’ forward pairing account for over half of their club’s La Liga goals and seven of their ten strikes in Europe’s elite competition this season.
Portuguese megastar Ronaldo topped the Champions League scoring charts for the second time last season with 12 goals in as many games, whereas Benzema has hit the mark 33 times in European competition during his career.
Isco struck first in Real’s 6-1 win at Galatasaray and scored three Champions League goals for Malaga last term.
The former Valencia youth had only scored five times in his career before the start of last season, but 12 goals from midfield for Los Boquerones convinced the Bernabeu money men to part with €30m for the 21-year-old during the summer.
Isco scored three goals in Spain Under-21s’ successful European Championship campaign in June – which included strikes in the semi-final and final – and bagged four times in his first three home matches for Los Merengues.
Juventus have leaked two or more goals in each of their last three games.
The Serie A champions are currently experiencing a bit of a wobble in their race for a third successive Scudetto, with a 4-2 loss at Fiorentina cancelling out the hard work Antonio Conte’s side put in when squeaking past AC Milan 3-2 in their last home fixture.
A pair of Champions League draws against teams their opponents have comprehensively thrashed does not bode well for the Old Lady’s chances of keeping her sheet clean in the Spanish capital and the pressure on Juventus to get a result here could see them throw caution to the wind against a Real side loaded with attacking threat.
