Competition: Russian Premier League
Market: Hulk to be top goalscorer
Odds: 3/1 @ 888 Sport
Zenit Saint-Petersburg forward Hulk has been in good scoring form this season in the Russian Premier League, and finds himself in a position to be the top scorer in the division if he can continue his run in front of goal. The Brazilian international is behind teammate Salomon Rondon by a single goal, but the latter has gone of the boil of late, while Hulk has netted only last month.
The race for top scorer promises to be closer, however, with Roman Eremenko and Ahmed Musa (CSKA Moscow) both level on nine goals with Hulk. The only difference has been Zenit’s fine form this season, with manager Andres Villas-Boas targeting the Premier League title. With the giants of the division dominant this season, Hulk should find a lot of chances coming his way, and he has a good track record in front of goal to deliver.
As a result, the former Porto man is 3/1 with 888 Sport to finish as the Russian Premier League’s top scorer this season with Zenit Saint-Petersburg. He has 10 more games to play to topple his teammate, but has been hitting the back of the net more frequently, so he should end the campaign strongly.
Bet: Zenit’s Hulk to finish as the Russian Premier League’s top scorer this season @ 3/1 with 888 Sport >>
