But FST followers weren’t the only ones reaping the rewards after Tuesday night as one Ladbrokes customer bagged a huge win thanks to some late drama in Spain.
Espanyol gain a new fan after huge win for Ladbrokes bettor!
The punter in question placed a modest £6.50 on a huge 4,844/1 three-fold accumulator backing Chelsea, Espanyol and Gabon all to be leading at the break but for the games to end all square.
Chelsea’s trip to the Amex never looked in doubt thanks to Adam Webster’s 60th-minute equaliser and an 84th-minute strike from Achraf Hakimi earned Morocco a point against Gabon, but things got a little heated in Spain.
Cadiz vs Espanyol was the last of the three games to kick off and a 10th-minute opener from Manu Morlanes saw the away side head into the break ahead. Alvaro Negredo hit back early in the second half and looked to have won a huge lump sum for the Ladbrokes punter.
Cadiz had different ideas, though, and a 91st-minute goal from Alejo looked to have ended all hope for the bet. But a nerve-shredding finale awaited as Espanyol pushed for an equaliser, with Raul de Tomas popping up in the 96th-minute of the game (there were only five minutes added on by the referee) to level the scores, bag Espanyol a point and send this punter into dreamland!
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “This has to go down as one of the bets of the season so far. At astronomical odds of 4,844/1, our plucky punter had to witness no less than four goals coming in the final 10 minutes of their selected games, all of which went their way.”
Bet of the season indeed. What a win!
