BENFICA made it a great night for Jordan as their last-minute goal landed two doubles.
He’s focusing on Roma v Real Madrid tonight with two tips – one which is a long shot.
Jordan says: Cristiano Ronaldo walked out of his Champions League press conference last night after being irritated by journalists’ questions about his performances away from home, his relationship with team-mates and why they don’t seem to bond as well as they Catalans.
I fancied him to score before seeing this so thought I’d add to to the write-up as it has probably fuelled him and he was raging at the suggestions. I like the Champions League knockout stages as you get the better players at better prices to score goals and think there is value in the Portuguese hitman tonight.
Ronaldo leads the competition with 11 goals and now faces a Roma side with one clean sheet in their last eight fixtures. He has six goals in his last two group games and if there’s anybody who’s going to score tonight he’s clearly the favourite.
Looking for a bigger-priced long shot I think Madrid’s chances of a penalty could be worth a gamble and hopefully it’s Ronaldo who steps up. A Chris Guy-type of bet might tempt you to take a header or left foot which he has surprisingly scored a fair bit with in his last few La Liga goals four in 11 if I’m not mistaken. A header is available at 6-1 and the left foot 9-1 – both with 888sport.
Christiano Ronaldo to score (19-20, 888sport) – 2.5 points
Real Madrid to score a penalty (11-2, Paddy Power) – 0.5 points
