Ronaldo Is A Scoring Machine
The Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool is one match that should live up to the hype. The FA Cup final last Saturday always had the potential to be a turgid affair and that match lived up to those expectations. I’ve watched every second of the Cup Final for too many years to mention but during the Chelsea and Manchester United match I was tempted to watch a repeat of the Royal Wedding.
Real Madrid and Liverpool are the two highest scorers in this season’s Champions League. The two semi-finals produced 20 goals in four matches. The richest clubs are now investing in the best strikers and let the defending take care of itself. Jose Mourinho is becoming a Luddite in the modern era. CRISTIANO RONALDO is the leading Champions League scorer in 2017/18 and is 14/1 to score a hat-trick or more in the final.
There are no major soccer matches for betting tonight so UK sports enthusiasts will have to focus on rugby league and the Super League fixture between the home team in Warrington and Hull. The visitors have such a plethora of injuries that their tea lady is on the bench and she should be involved at some stage. A Hull team at full strength would be second favourites on the road at Warrington. The hosts won 10 matches on the bounce before losing to Wigan over the Magic Weekend. Warrington are missing one or two first teamers but they have enough in the starting 13 to cover the 14 POINTS HANDICAP at 10/11 with Ladbrokes.
The best horse running in Britain and Ireland today is Order Of St George at Leopardstown (7.25). The horse could win this race with his hands behind his back. It’s a prep race for the Ascot Gold Cup and with last year’s winner, Big Orange, out of the picture ORDER OF ST GEORGE is the one to back for Ascot at 9/4 with Betfair. There are two decent races at Goodwood today and the 3.45 looks open. HIGHBROW is a progressive horse and can do the business at 13/8 with bet365.
