In addition to an outrageous price boost that’s inflated Manchester United’s already handsome 11/2 odds for victory against Bayern Munchen to 13/2, the generous folks over at bwin.com have also applied their famous double-triple money offer to the match.
Seemingly desperate to ensure every punter cops a monster profit, if Man Utd’s mouth-watering match-betting price doesn’t appeal (more of which can be read about by clicking here) then the firm will double or triple the odds of any accurate first or anytime goalscorer bet if your selection ends the game with two or three strikes in his pocket.
With such an array of talent taking to the field from both teams, there’s plenty of options available to land a winner and we’ve picked out the two most likely culprits lining up on either side to fatten wallets the world over.
In the red corner, Wayne Rooney is an obvious pick.
The United talisman will be taking centre stage in the absence of chief goal-getter Robin van Persie and the England international’s net-seeking sense has been switchblade sharp in recent weeks.
Domestically, the Liverpool-born frontman has put six away in the last four games in which United have scored.
Only one of these goals, however, were deadlock breakers so maybe swerve his 7/1 price to score first here in favour of the weighty 9/4 that says he notches at any time.
On two occasions in recent weeks Rooney has registered multi-goal hauls, scoring two last time out against Aston Villa and if he repeats the trick here, his anytime scorer odds could be doubled to 9/2.
Thomas Muller is the FC Bayern man backed to do the business.
The Bavarians have scored the opener in all eight of their Champions League tussles this term, with five of them coming via the boot of a player stationed behind their solitary striker.
German running machine Muller has three in five appearances in the competition this season, including the first goal of the game when FCB hosted United’s neighbours Manchester City.
He’s a 15/4 shot to score first, meaning a brace at Old Trafford could be doubled to 15/2 if he’s quickest off the mark.
