Habitual backers of Cristiano Ronaldo to score in this season’s Champions League may wish to pause amidst the betting-funded luxury of their Caribbean island getaways to ponder Gareth Bale’s contribution to keeping them in cocktails and Cuban cigars.
Ronaldo’s two semi-final second-leg strikes saw him eclipse Lionel Messi’s previous competition high-watermark and he’s failed to fire in just one of his ten starts in the 2013/14 renewal.
Yet before emptying the coffers into their bwin accounts in hot pursuit of the 9/10 about the man from Madeira bagging in Real Madrid’s Lisbon showdown with city rivals Atletico Madrid, CR7 profiteers are urged to recognise the contribution of Gareth Bale to their gravy train.
The boy wonder to Ronaldo’s Batman he may be, but no Los Blancos player has supplied the Ballon d’Or holder with more assists across La Liga and Champions League action this term.
A lop-side nine of the one-time Tottenham winger’s 16 set-ups across the two competitions have been in service of the Portuguese’s ever-growing scrapbook.
CR7 has notched in the last 12 matches in which both he and Bale have featured from the first peel of the referee’s whistle.
While there had been doubts as to the fitness of both men in the lead up to the final, Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed the pair are ready to feature in a press briefing, as per Sky Sports.
The sight of Bale’s name alongside his role model in the starting lineup should be the signal to unleash all hell upon bwin’s 9/10 odds about Ronaldo to bag during normal time.

After all, the Portugal international loves playing the La Liga Champions.
Atletico goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has had cause to fish three of the former Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United forward’s efforts from his net in their last two meetings.
