Roma v Real Madrid Goalscorer Odds
Edin Dzeko buried 29 goals in 37 appearances for Roma in Serie A during 2016/17, but since then he’s found himself far more effective on the continent. Whereas he has just 18 goals from 48 matches since the start of last season domestically, he’s been a lynchpin for Roma in Europe as he’s bagged himself 13 goals in 16 fixtures over the same period, as well as eight from eight in the previous years’ Europa League. That includes a haul of five goals from four games this term, with each of these coming on home turf. Up against a porous Real Madrid defence that conceded three times at Eibar on the weekend, the spearhead of Roma’s attack should find himself with an opportunity or two.
Bayern Munich v Benfica Goalscorer Odds
Bayern’s defence remains sieve-like with their latest collapse an embarrassing 3-3 draw, coming against second-from-bottom Fortuna Dusseldorf, despite having led 3-1 with half an hour to go. It appears head coach Niko Kovac has a stay of execution until the aftermath of this game at least, with club president Uli Hoeness rather ominously stating “Kovac will be our coach on Tuesday then we will have to take a closer look at the situation.”
Veteran striker Jonas has missed quite a bit of the season through injury due to a neck problem for Benfica, but he’s been making up for lost time with four goals in as many games in November to date. The 34-year-old brings plenty of experience and has 127 goals in 160 games for Benfica, including 37 in 41 appearances across all competitions last term as he demonstrated his legs haven’t gone yet. The Bavarian giants are in such a fragile state at present and the Brazilian can take advantage – probably costing Kovac his job in the process even should Bayern qualify as expected.
Hoffenheim v Shakhtar Goalscorer Odds
There’s inevitably more focus on the other clash in Group F as leaders City travel to 2nd-placed Lyon, but there’s plenty of goalscoring potential in this game too. Shakhtar have conceded 13 times in this seasons’ Champions League while Hoffenheim have scored at a rate of two per game, with only the current top three in the German Bundesliga netting more than them domestically. In fact, they’ve scored 21 times in eight outings across all competitions since the October international break, as 31-year-old coach Julian Nagelsmann has earned a reputation for entertaining football.
Hoffenheim strikers Joelinton and Andrej Kramaric are priced the same in the goalscoring markets but we’re not so sure that should be the case. The former is more of a target man and has never managed more than eight goals in a single league campaign, while the most he’s managed across all competitions in a whole season was the 11 he bagged in 2016/17 for Rapid Vienna. We certainly prefer Croatian World Cup finalist Kramaric at the prices, with the versatile forward netting four times in nine league outings and three in four in Europe this term, leading the way in the goalscoring charts ahead of Joelinton and Arsenal’s on-loan Reiss Nelson.
