Gonzalo Higuain Golden boot odds

Napoli goal scorer Gonzalo Higuain is a striker capable of walking into any team in the world. Unfortunately for him he happens to be a national of a team full of attacking talents – Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and former Real Madrid team mate Angel Di Maria to name a few. However, for Argentina Higuain is the main man with a goal scoring record that far exceeds Aguero and Messi, scoring 21 times in 36 appearances. Therefore he is one of our strongest tips to win the Golden Boot at odds of 25/1 with Paddy Power.

Gonzalo Higuain World Cup top scorer odds

He has quickly become a huge part of a Napoli team who many expected to suffer after the departure of Edinson Cavani to Paris Saint-Germain and he managed to grab nine goals in the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers, in which his Argentinian side came top. It’s also interesting to note that Barcelona’s Lionel Messi is the only player that scored more goals for Argentina in qualifiers with ten; however he scored three penalties whilst Higuain scored none. In the 2010 World Cup in South Africa Higuain notched an impressive four goals despite his side being eliminated by Germany in quarter-finals whilst the other joint top goal scorers – Thomas Mueller of Germany, David Villa of Spain, Wesley Sneijder of Holland and Diego Forlan of Uruguay only scored one more. Argentina’s group shouldn’t hold anything hugely problematic with the teams including Iran, Bosnia-Hercegovina and Nigeria. They should qualify easily and our favourites to do so as winners, the attacking force of Argentina will also be looking to notch a few goals against the lesser sides – Iran and Bosnia-Hercegovina.
