With another great weekend of top-flight action in store across Europe, there’s plenty of interest for football betting fans, not least through backing anytime goalscorers. The three players mentioned here offer combined odds in excess of 11/1 – surely a tempting proposition for new customers looking to use their free £25 bet for joining bwin.com – and here’s why all three should oblige.
Antonio di Natale to score against AC Siena @ 11/10
Over the past couple of seasons, there has been a simple way of making money: back Antonio di Natale to score when Udinese play at home. At 34, Di Natale’s goal record in the twilight of his career is astonishing – he has scored 29 and 28 in his last two full seasons – but when he plays at Stadio Friuli, Di Natale’s figures are truly phenomenal. He has scored in 33 of Udinese’s last 41 home games – that’s 33 times out of 41 matches – which makes a mockery of odds of 11/10. He’s scored seven times already this season to become Serie A’s top scorer and should be the cornerstone of any weekend goalscorer bet.
Miroslav Klose to score against Parma @ 6/5
Miroslav Klose is another veteran enjoying a late career flourish. The 33 year-old is best known for his goalscoring exploits with Germany in the past three World Cups, but has actually spent the last few seasons struggling for form and fitness: last season he scored just a solitary goal for Bayern Munich. A free transfer to Lazio has proved invigorating. Klose has six goals this season – already more than he’s managed in the last two seasons combined – and will be relishing the visit of Parma this weekend. Parma have the joint-worst defensive record in Serie A and have conceded 12 goals in four away trips – music to the ears of a striker back in the goalscoring groove.
Rafael van der Vaart to score against Fulham @ 17/10
While one Dutchman in North London is deservedly winning plaudits for his incredible goalscoring prowess, there also happens to be another one playing at the top of his game. Robin van Persie may be hogging the headlines, but Rafael van der Vaart is arguably in just as fine form as his international team-mate and at 17/10 is a cracking price to notch yet again against a Fulham side who used far more first team players than Tottenham in their respective Thursday night Europa League matches. Van der Vaart has scored in each of Spurs’ last five league matches, taking his tally to six for the season, and he can keep his roll going and make it six games in a row at Craven Cottage on Sunday.
