Harry Kane could become the highest scorer in the history of the Premier League and beat Alan Shearer’s record. He is already level with a prolific scorer in 2017 because the player and Cristiano Ronaldo have both scored 43 goals in all competition this year. They will be on the same pitch this evening when Tottenham visit Real Madrid in the Champions League and Ronaldo’s team are tipped to come out on top.
The sides met in the quarter-finals of the competition in 2011 and Madrid won the first leg in Spain 4-0. The second match at the Old White Hart Lane was an exercise in going through the motions but Real won that match 1-0 and the winning goal was scored by Ronaldo. The margin of victory over two legs should be smaller this time but the outcome can be the same with REAL MADRID (4/9 with William Hill) starting the process by beating Tottenham tonight.
Manchester City can’t stop scoring and they can continue by beating Napoli by at least one goal at the Etihad. City are up against the form team in Italy who have won their first eight matches in Serie A. However, Napoli did lose away to Shakhtar Donetsk in the first group day in the Champions League which suggests their focus is elsewhere. CITY -1 on the handicap is the bet of the night at 8/5 with Ladbrokes.
There is an intriguing handicap at the principle meeting of the day at Leicester. The 3pm contest is a seven furlong race worth over 15 grand that has attracted a strong field for a Tuesday highlight. The top weight is Custom Cut who would win by half the track on old Group form. However, it’s the horse at the bottom of the weights in HYDE PARK (9/2 with bet365) who is rated to prevail.
