This year’s Champions League has already brought us a good share of amazing moments. The new-look Paris, with a vicious attacking trio - MNM, Ronaldo-led Manchester United, defending champs Chelsea and struggling Barcelona, and this is only a small share of what is going on on the top-tier European football stage.
One plucky punter decided to place a quite ambitious four-fold accumulator backing the results of the Champions League matchweek 2 fixtures. The anonymous bettor placed their 996.95 (24899/25) accumulator at one of the top online bookmakers
& backed it with a quite big stake (€54.29), considering the probability of it coming in. It all looked like it was just another recreational wager placed just because. However, it all started looking quite serious after Real Madrid fell short to the Sheriff Tiraspol, which played its second-ever Champions League match! The last-minute Sebastian Thill’s goal secured a shocking win over the Spanish powerhouse, which, by the way, is the most successful club in UCL history. Just for the record, Sheriff’s win was priced at 27.00 (26/1). That was not the only upset we saw during the matchweek 2. The punter also backed Club Brugge to beat RB Leipzig. The underdog also brought home the victory from the German side’s home ground, scoring two goals to one.
These two upsets, along with PSG - Man City cracker & Liverpool’s humiliating win over FC Porto, flipped the 50 euro stake into a huge €54,125.05 payout. This was probably the wildest wager of the week. What do you think?
