Check out this week’s anytime goalscorer tips below:
Raheem Sterling – 20/21 (MAN CITY vs Schalke 04) – Tuesday 12th
Fresh from his sensational 14-minute hattrick against Watford at the weekend, Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling will be walking on air ahead of the Citizen’s Champions League Last 16 second leg clash with Schalke 04.
City hold a narrow 3-2 lead from the first leg between the teams in Germany, an advantage that was earned in the dying throes of the game in Gelsenkirchen. Raheem Sterling landed that decisive match-winning blow late on at the VELTINS-Arena and we think he looks a great bet to make a similar impact this week.
The England international has rattled the net 5 times in his last 3 appearances at the Etihad Stadium and he is available at 20/21 with bet365 to get his name on the scoresheet again.
Frank Nouble– 11/4 (COLCHESTER vs Forest Green) – Tuesday 12th
27-year old left-sided Colchester United attack Frank Nouble has hit an incredibly rich vein of form for his team of late, helping to drive The U’s quest for League Two promotion.
Nouble scored again at the weekend in Colchester’s comfortable 3-0 win against Newport County to take his recent rally to 4 goals in 6 games.
Nouble’s recent goal-scoring spasm has allowed him to double his haul for this season from 4 to 8 goals inside the space of a month and with Colchester expected to cruise past Forest Green on Tuesday, there should be more goals on offer for Chelsea academy product.
You can back Nouble to get amongst the goals again at a lucrative looking 11/4 with bet365.
Ivan Toney – 7/5 (AFC Wimbledon vs PETERBOROUGH) – Tuesday 12th
7th placed Peterborough United travel to take on League One’s bottom club AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday evening in a contest where The Posh’s Ivan Toney will be aiming to cement his reputation as one of the division’s away-day specialists.
Toney is Peterborough’s joint leading goalscorer this season having scored 12 times in 23 League One starts for United to date this term.
Remarkably, 9 of the 12 goals Toney has scored were plundered in away matches. Toney’s ability to register on the road hasn’t been restricted to league football either – the 22-year old scored both of his Johnstone’s Paint Trophy goals in away games and 3 of his 4 FA Cup goals away from the ABAX Stadium.
In total, 77.7% of Toney’s total goals this season were scored in away fixtures for Peterborough. We think Toney can enhance his away stats even further this week, and you can back him to score anytime against Wimbledon at 7/5 with bet365.
Serge Gnabry – 3/1 (BAYERN MUNICH vs Liverpool) – Wednesday 13th
After the teams’ fist-leg 0-0 draw at Anfield last month, everything is still to play for in the second act of Bayern Munich and Liverpool’s Champions League Last 16 double-header this week.
On a night where both attacks struggled to find their flow on Merseyside on February 19th, Bayern’s Serge Gnabry offered the most threat for the away team, racking up 3 attempts on the Liverpool goal in total during his 91 minutes on the pitch.
The 23-year old wide forward is a man in form – Gnabry registered in each of his last 2 appearances for Bayern and the former Arsenal youngster has scored 5 in his last 7 in all.
With Thomas Muller suspended, Gnabry looks certain to reprise his role down Bayern’s right-hand side this week, and he is priced incredibly generously at 3/1 with bet365 to find the net anytime against Liverpool.
Teemu Pukki– 5/6 (NORWICH CITY vs Hull City) – Wednesday 13th
Championship leaders and promotion favourites Norwich City’s hot-streak continued unabated at the weekend with the Canaries’ 4th successive league victory.
Finnish striker Teemu Pukki bagged 3 goals for Norwich in their quartet of recent wins, reaffirming his importance to City’s promotion charge. Overall, the clinical 28-year old has smashed home 9 goals in his last 9 appearances for the Canaries, and 24 Championship goals in 33 games in total this season.
At Carrow Road, Pukki has thrilled the home support by registering 6 goals in his last 6 outings, and the former Brondby star looks a terrific bet at 5/6 with bet365 to prolong his recent goal-getting run there against Hull on Wednesday.
