Manchester United and Liverpool renew age-old hostilities at Old Trafford in a game the Red Devils look excellent value to prevail.
A price of 83/100 says the hosts down their Merseyside foes and based on current form, there’s likely to be a queue around the block of punters clamoring for a piece of the action.
Those looking to back the visiting party can get paid out at 13/4, while it’s 5/2 that the spoils are shared.
But if match betting doesn’t keep your vessel buoyant, bwin have an array of great value first goalscorer options available and we’ve sounded out the three most likely to cop here.
Robin van Persie @ 17/4
The Dutchman’s match-winning brace against Southampton last time took his tally to three in as many outings.
A pattern of one goal every other game at the Theatre of Dreams suggests he’s going to bag at some point in this one too.
He bagged against West Ham, Chelsea and Hull and failed to notch in the games immediately after.
After having his home game off the scoresheet when Stoke were in town, form says he’ll prove a scourge of the Reds here.
Steven Gerrard @ 23/2
The Liverpool skipper’s virtuoso performance against Basel last time out wasn’t enough to prevent the Reds exiting club football’s most prestigious competition, but being downhearted has never been a suitable excuse to keep Gerrard from rustling the Man Utd net.
A double-goal salvo in this fixture last term helped the Anfield club to a 3-0 win at the home of their most loathed and simultaneously took his personal total to five in his last 11 with this foe.
Further value in this bet comes in the shape of two of these strikes being the first of the contest.
Juan Mata @ 13/2
The Spaniard has notched twice in his last four outings.
One goal was the first of the match but both proved to be the winner and, as ascertained earlier in the week at news.bwin.com/en/, with this contest poised to finish 2-1 to the hosts, the diminutive ex-Chelsea star could well settle proceedings.
His last goalscorer price, incidentally, is the same as his first.
