World Cup Betting: Ballack can strike first

Click to follow

Two of the main contenders for the Golden Boot meet today as Miroslav Klose and Hernan Crespo face each other in Berlin. The Tote offer 13-5 that Crespo scores more goals in the match and 3-1 that Klose comes out on top. The tie is 4-6.

With Klose and his striking partner, Lukas Podolski, likely to be well shepherded by Argentina's defence, Michael Ballack may be a better bet to score first. He is on offer at a generous 10-1 with Ladbrokes.
