Betting News: Can Cristiano Ronaldo beat group stage scoring record?

Copenhagen Real Madrid betting preview

Tonight is the final match of the Champions League group stage for Real Madrid and they visit FC Copenhagen assured of qualification for the next round and guaranteed top spot. FC Copenhagen go into the match with an outside chance of making the Europa League, so do have something to play for.

But those hosts are still considered rank outsiders by the bookies at around 7/1 to beat Los Blancos. Carlo Ancelotti’s men are heavy favourites at 4/9. The nine-time European Cup winners are unbeaten in this season’s competition to date, and are th highest scorers with 19 goals in their first five matches.

Cristiano Ronaldo should feature for Los Blancos after recovering from a thigh injury. The Portugal international can be found at 8/13 to score at any point during the match and at 13/5 to score the game’s first goal.

The 28-year-old should be motivated to score tonight as he could set a new Champions League group stage record for scoring. Him and PSG forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic both have eight goals so far, and with the Swede being rested for the final game of the group stage, Ronaldo has the chance to move ahead.

Indeed, backing Ronaldo to score two goals and hit double figures for the group stage is a tempting bet and can be found at odd of 5/2.
