Sergio Aguero backed to be Champions League top scorer

Money comes for Aguero to top score in the Champions League this season

The 2018/19 Champions League group stage kicks off on Tuesday 18 September and there are many punters looking to back Sergio Aguero to finish top of the scoring charts.

Aguero is currently first-choice striker at Manchester City and it’s worth noting that the English champions are trading as favourites on the outright market, so there’s a strong chance that the Argentine will be playing a lot of football in the competition.

The man known as Kun is available at 7/1 with bet365, with compatriot Lionel Messi currently heading the market and it’s little surprise to see the Barcelona star trading at around odds of 5/1.

Bet365 have 5/1 that Messi top scores for a Barca team looking to make amends for a sorry exit at the hands of Roma where the Catalan side claimed a first leg 4-1 win before conspiring to lose 3-0 at the Stadio Olimpico.

Cristiano Ronaldo is yet to score for Juventus at the time of writing, although the Portuguese player took a rest for the recent internationals and betfair offer odds of 7/1 that he fires to the top of the charts here.

Ronaldo is sure to catch fire in a black and white shirt at some stage, with Mohamed Salah trading at odds of 12/1 and the Egyptian should be part of a high-scoring Liverpool team gunning to go one better than last season.

All odds were correct at time of posting.
