Liverpool (v Real Madrid)
A County Monaghan football punter is revelling in a five-figure cash boost after hitting a winning streak on a mammoth accumulator.
The astonishing bet was struck online as the punter invested €30 on twenty football selections across the weekend.
They only needed a goal to be scored by both Sunderland (2/9) and Espanyol (2/7), at least two goals to be scored in six other selected matches, and at least three goals in an under-23 match between Man City and Liverpool which finished 3-2.
The astonishing bet was completed with wins from Hearts (1/6), Ajax (2/13), Lille (8/13), Inter (2/7), Juventus (2/7), Peterborough (7/10), Bournemouth (4/6), Norwich (7/10), Brentford (10/11), Watford (5/6) and finally Liverpool (1/2), who had kept the bet alive with a last minute goal on Saturday afternoon.
With every single pick obliging, the punter was able to log in shortly after the final whistle on Sunday to see their account topped up by a stunning total of €19,650.57.
There may have been twenty selections, but they all looked likely at odds-on prices so hats off to our Monaghan customer on a sensational win. We wish them well with their winnings!
