This Thursday night the world’s finest CR7 will go to war with the man trying to dethrone him as the greatest two-letter-number combo on the planet in the hulking, chiselled shape of Cristiano Ronaldo.

That’s right, talismanic superstar Callum Robinson will be looking to put the pesky upstart in his place as two in-form Adonises duke it out for supremacy at The Aviva Stadium where Ireland face Portugal.

To herald his tussle of the titans, Paddy’s trusty football traders have been busy making some special, enhanced, prices to help us try and work out who’s the finest CR7 once and for all.

Thursday 7.45pm – Ireland v Portugal
Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Football and RTÉ2

These two megastars come into this fresh off hat-tricks in their last international outings with Robinson slaying World Cup hopefuls Qatar last month. For little Ronnie it was three bundled in against pointless minnows Luxembourg. Well done, they’re ranked 94th in the world.

Any Irish fan will tell you they’re nothing special.

But, talking of specials here’s some Power Prices we’ve formulated especially for this colossal clash.

Robinson to outscore Ronaldo

Sure, Ronaldo might have 109 more international goals than Robinson but how many has he scored for Portugal in November 2021? A big fat zero. Both warriors come into this one with an identical number in this field and it’s a nice, juicy price boosted from 10/1 that the good CR7 triumphs over the evil one in this field on Thursday.

Ronaldo to outscore Robinson

If you prefer to look at the last 18 years rather than just the last 10 days then you might fancy Ronaldo to outscore Robinson. Not very patriotic of you though, is it? This treacherous punt was 4/6.

Draw – Players score same including 0-0

You can be sure the Madeiran CR7 won’t be looking forward to coming up against Shane Duffy and John Egan on Thursday. If you fancy the dynamic duo to keep Ronaldo quiet and Robinson to have a rare off day you can back The Draw which also has you covered if both fire a blank. Unlikely but stranger things have happened. This bet started life at Evens.
