Cristiano Ronaldo will have his legacy in mind as he seeks to build upon the record 16 goals he has already scored in the Champions League this term in the final against Atletico Madrid.
CR7 is a market-leading, yet unusually generous, 3/1 in the first-scorer betting that’s tough to oppose, but for those who wish to fish in search of greater rewards there’s one man who stands out at the prices.
Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, 11/2 and 6/1 to bust the deadlock respectively, have ably supported the man from Madeira in the scoring stakes this term, hitting 35 goals between them across all competitions.
However, both have been put into the shade by 16/1-rated penalty area day-tripper Sergio Ramos in the closing weeks of the 2013/14 campaign.
In their last six outings for Los Blancos, Benzema and Bale have struck once and three times respectively, a combined total which still falls short of the centre-half’s five in the same period.
There’s no better reason than UEFA’s shiniest of showpieces for bwin to roll out their double/triple money offer either, meaning if Ramos beats Thibaut Courtois to open the scoring before netting again once or twice more, the boys in black and gold will multiply your first-scorer odds by the same factor.
Former Sevilla man Ramos has hit the goal-scoring trail at just the right part of the season, having scored just once prior to his recent hot streak.
He’s more than capable of setting his first-scorer odds spiralling by netting more than once too, as proved by his vital double against FC Bayern Munchen in his previous Champions League outing.

It’s a nest egg that would turn a humungous £480 profit if the Sevilla academy product breaks the deadlock.
