Back Mirco Antenucci to score anytime for Leeds after a great start to the season
After two goals in three Championship matches so far this season, Leeds United striker Mirco Antenucci is looking threatening and is a best price of 5/2 courtesy of Ladbrokes to hit the back of the net anytime.
His strike partner Chris Wood was talking up the attacker’s ability following the draw against Bristol City; a match in which he scored: “We worked well together today and it’s nice, we’re starting to form a bit of a bond.
“The partnership’s going to take time but, when you play that one up front, it’s difficult to create chances or get chances. But it was nice working with Mirco today and hopefully we can continue that.”
Antenucci, converted a penalty to give the visitors’ the lead in Somerset, while he also broke the deadlock against Burnley at Elland Road, so odds of 13/2 with PaddyPower to open the scoring against the Owls is definitely an odd worth considering.
The home side are 8/5 with SkyBet to win the match after three consecutive draws so far, while Wednesday’s only defeat this season has come on the road against Ipswich Town, highlighting that their away form this term could suffer somewhat.
Antenucci has proved to be a livewire this season under Rosler’s new regime of high pressing without the ball and it is this determination that has served the striker so well in his short Leeds career so far; his willingness to chase down lost causes and he can put the Owls’ defence under a lot of pressure with his tenacity.
While he is handy in the penalty area, he demonstrated against Burnley that he can score world class strikes, after rifling in from outside of the box, following some neat footwork. To dispatch two or more, he is 14/1 with bet365, while to hit a hat-trick he has odds of 100/1 with SkyBet.
