Champions League Final: First Goalscorer Tip: Sadio Mane

Senegal's finest has only scored 1 fewer than Salah in the Champions League this season but is nearly 3 times the price and can slip under the radar.

Most players with 9 Champions League goals to their name from 10 matches would head into the final as favourite in the first goalscorer market. Not Sadio Mane - unbelievably he ranks 9th with some firms and can be picked up at a best price 9/1 with Skybet to break the deadlock.

The Senegalese international finds himself comfortably in the shadow of Ronaldo and Salah in the build-up to this game and that should suit him just fine.

Mane found the net in both of Liverpool’s semi-final ties, opening the scoring in Rome to essentially seal the victory. He also fired first in the 5-0 demolition of Porto.

Back the 26-year-old each-way with Skybet and get paid out at 1/3rd odds if he scores anytime instead of first to still turn a tidy profit.
