Roma injury time goal earns punter £130k from big football wagers at Unibet13th December 2012 / lee
A lucky winner in Europe received a massive payout for a football bet recently from online betting site Unibet after landing two high paying combination bets. The first big win came with a six-fold bet on the final round of Champions League group stage matches along with a couple of selection from the weekend’s action in Italy’s Serie A. The punter from Sweden, put down a stake of €289.73 and was returned with a tremendous €40,417.84 thanks to odds of 139.49 on the combination and the results came from pretty straight forward calls on six of the Champions League matches.
Routine wins for Bayern Munich over Bate Borisov and Chelsea’s triumph of FC Nordsjaelland were the backbone of the combination bet, along with expected home wins for Inter over Napoli and Roma over Fiorentina in Serie A. The real value in the six fold football bet came from a couple of away wins. FC Cluj slipped in a cheeky 1-0 win at Old Trafford on Match Day Six of the Champions League, with the Premier League side fielding an under strength side and Galatasaray picked up a crucial away win at SC Braga to qualify for the last sixteen behind Manchester United.
Here is the details of the first winning bet for the Swedish punter:
Inter v Napoli (home win) at odds of 2.40
Man United v CFR Cluj (away win) at odds of 5.80
Roma v Fiorentina (home win) at odds of 1.95
SC Braga v Galatasaray (away win) at odds of 2.80
Bayern Munich v Bate Borisov (home win) at odds of 1.38
Chelsea v FC Nordsjaelland (home win) at odds of 1.33
But the win did not stop there as the lucky punter went big on another bet, an amazing call on the Roma v Fiorentina match on the weekend.
This may not be seen as such a straightforward bet as the six fold, as the punter staked a massive €1970.25 wager on Roma to be beating Fiorentina 3-1 at halftime in their Serie A match. That result came up when Francesco Totti netting in first half injury time, which secured winning odds of 45.00 to return a massive win of €88,661.02 for the Unibet customer.
So it was a hugely profitable weekend, who took nearly €130,000 from their two bets.
