IT’S the one match of the year that can etch a player in Australian soccer folklore, immortalising their heroic deeds.
It’s the A-League Grand Final.
Often those deeds heroic are goal-scoring. Bagging the winner, a hat-trick or more.
So what better market to look at in the zenith of the footballing season than the goal-scoring option?
Goal-scoring presents four options for each player. First scorer, meaning that they are to be the first scorer of the match. First scorer for their team, which is self explanatory. Anytime scorer, meaning they can score at any stage of the match. Last Scorer, meaning they have to score the final goal of the match.
Besart Berisha (Brisbane Roar): Berisha is the star when it comes to goal-scoring in this match. The Roar striker has netted 12 goals this season, the second most of any player in the competition. If anyone is to score in this match, he looks to be the man. Berisha is $4.20 to score first with IASbet.com, $3.00 to score first for the Roar, $2.05 to score anytime with Sportingbet.com.au and $4.20 to score last with Sportsbet.com.au
Tomi Juric (Western Sydney Wanderers): Juric has had a stellar season for the red and blacks, bagging eight goals. He is the major player for the Wanderers in this department. Juric is currently $7.50 to score first with Sportsbet.com.au (better than $6.00 with Centrebet), $4.50 to score first for the Wanderers with IASbet, $3.30 to score at any time with Sportsbet and $7.50 to score last with IASbet (better than $6.00 with Sportingbet).
Henrique (Brisbane Roar): The flamboyant Brazilian midfielder has plenty of flare and five goals to his name this season. He is $7.50 to score first with IASbet (better than $6.00 with Sportingbet), $5.00 to score first for the Roar with Sportsbet, $3.30 to score anytime with IASbet and $7.50 to score last with Sportsbet.
Shinji Ono (Western Sydney Wanderers): The Japanese wizard who oozes creativity is a big game player and, while his preference is to create goals, he also knows how to score them. Ono has had a lean season by his standards, scoring just two goals, but he could come up big in the most important game of all. Ono is $11.00 to score first with Centrebet, $7.00 with Sportingbet.au.com to score first for the Wanderers (better than $5.50 with Sportsbet), $4.50 to score anytime with Sportingbet and $11.00 to score last with Centrebet.
Ivan Franjic (Brisbane Roar): While he may be a defender, Franjic has scored five goals this season and offers big value, particularly if the first goal is to come from a corner. Franjic is $15 with IASbet.com to score first, $10 to score first for the Roar with Sportsbet (better than $5.00 with Sportingbet), $6.50 to score anytime with IASbet and $15 to score last with Sportsbet.
Nikolai Topor-Stanley (Western Sydney Wanderers): Another defender who could come up and score from a set piece, Topor-Stanley is particularly potent from corners and is massive odds. He is $41 with IASbet.com to score first (better than $26 with Sportingbet), $23 to score first for the Wanderers with Sportsbet, $17 to score at anytime with IASbet (better than $10 with Centrebet) and $41 to score last.
Besart Berisha in all four markets looks the best bet by a mile.
