Di Canio 9-2 for Premier League's greatest goal
IT is always open to debate in pubs and clubs up and down the land and now you can bet on which goal is named the best of the Premier League era.
The odds highlight how wide open the event is with Coral rating David Beckham’s goal at Wimbledon their favourite and Hills believing the long-range effort is a rank outsider. The award is settled by public vote.
Paolo Di Canio’s volley against Wimbledon is the industry market leader at 9-2, while the best game is far more clear cut with Liverpool’s sensational 4-3 victory over Newcastle the red-hot favourite at 8-15 with Hills.
Jurgen Klinsmann’s dive is 3-1 with Coral to claim the best goal celebration and Paddy Power rate Thierry Henry 6-4 to be named the Premier League’s greatest player with Manchester United’s veteran Ryan Giggs next in the betting at 11-4.
There have been so many top talents to have graced the Premier League over the last 20 years but none can hold a light to Lionel Messi, who will be Barcelona’s keyman against Chelsea in tonight’s Champions League semi-final at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
Messi is 11-4 with bet365 to score at least three goals over the two legs, while Hills make Chelsea 2-1 to outscore the Argentinian at Stamford Bridge. Boylesports rate Messi evens to notch more than Spaniard Fernando Torres in the first leg.
