There were crazy scenes in Paris last night when Manchester United qualified after trailing 2-0 from the first leg at Old Trafford, but the night was even better for one bet365 punter who landed a £7,500 win from a £5 bet.
After PSG won the first leg 2-0 with two away goals, only the biggest optimists could have predicted Manchester United would qualify for the last eight. But, after Romelu Lukaku put them ahead inside two minutes they were in the game, only for PSG to equalise. A second Lukaku goal brought renewed hope to Solskjaer’s side and knowing just one more goal was required, the impossible happened in injury time, when Marcus Rashford scored a dubious penalty, given only after a four minute VAR review.
That left the away fans, players and staff in heaven but what nobody knew at that time, was there was one lucky punter needing Rashford’s penalty to hit the back of the net for a whopping £7,500 win.
The first thing to happen was the Lukaku to score leg, it was won after less than two minutes. Then in the 34th minute Angel Di Maria was booked for PSG. Going into half-time, United were winning 2-1 thanks to Lukaku’s two goals and so the first half of the punters half-time/full-time prediction was home.
The corners leg was always looking likely to happen, infact, Manchester United did not have one corner all night, and there was just four for the home side, so this leg of the bet builder was an easy winner.
With the score at 2-1 as the clock ticked into the 90th minute, the bet builder punter looked to be just falling short of one of the best bets of all time. However, they would have known that a Manchester United goal changed everything and landed the 3-1 correct score, which would also land the Man Utd to qualify leg and assure the HT/FT pick was a winner.
Up steps Marcus Rashford to smash a penalty into Buffon’s net and land the lucky punter a huge 1500/1 bet365 bet builder winner!
