Cristiano Ronaldo to score against Lyon @ 3/4
Somewhat unsurprisingly, the world’s most expensive footballer is the first selection in our treble. The Portuguese star has scored ten goals in ten matches so far this season but curiously only has one in the Champions League. That is not enough for someone so “rich, handsome and great”, at least in his own mind, so expect that to all change on Wednesday night. Real Madrid have already scored eight Champions League goals this season and won the reverse fixture at the Bernabeu 4-0. Back Ronaldo to get on the scoresheet at odds of 3/4.
Mario Gomez to score against Napoli @ 11/20
Next up we will go with Mario Gomez, the Bayern Munich striker who has smashed a whopping 12 goals in just ten Bundesliga games so far this season. Napoli have lost two of their five away matches in Serie A in 2011/12 and their Champions League inexperience could be their downfall at the imposing Allianz Arena, giving Gomez plenty of opportunities to extend his tremendous recent run. It is also worth noting the the big German hitman notched eight goals in eight games in this competition last term and already has a couple in this year’s tough Group A.
Oscar Cardozo to score against Basel @ Evens
Benfica are an attacking side who love to play expansive football and it is Cardozo who is generally on the end of their flowing moves. Boss Jorge Jesus’ 4-2-3-1 system is built around the big Paraguayan’s imposing presence up front and he has already bagged six goals in eight appearances this season, including two Champions League strikes. Benfica won the reverse fixture 2-0 two weeks ago – with Cardozo grabbing one of the goals – and home advantage will give the Portuguese giants even more chances to score this time around.
