“It’s not over until the last minute” the adage stood true for a punter on Wednesday night. The unnamed punter had put £2 on the most unthinkable outcomes from football games across England and Spain, pocketing over £31,000 with a sensational 12-fold accumulator.
The three last-minute winners and – and a 150/1 comeback – made the punt so startling. The 12-fold accumulator was helped by Manchester City and two surprise results in Spain of the midweek football action.
The last minute luck is all what the punter needed to complete the blockbuster win. And, the same happened when Raheem Sterling's added time goal for Manchester City against Southampton gave hosts the win.
The Spanish football action was even more dramatic. None more so than in San Sebastian, where Real Sociedad hosted third tier Lleida Esportiu. Lleida went into the fixture at 11/1 odds, the price drifted to 150/1 after they fell 2-0 down. The third-tier side came back to secure a famous victory with an 89th minute wonder goal.
Formentera, the league rivals Lleida Esportiu, too delivered an upset away at Athletic Bilbao. Athletic Club had come to the clash priced at 20/1; the fixture ended with Athletic Bilbao 0-1 SD Formentera result.
