Fantasy Football: Sterling’s value soars as punter wins big on £4 stake

Raheem Sterling's blistering performance against Atalanta in the Champions League on Tuesday night paid dividends for one smart Paddy Power Fantasy punter


One fortunate Paddy Power Fantasy player saw a bumper return on their Tuesday night entry in the £12,000 Wonder Strike contest thanks to Raheem Sterling’s scintillating show at the Etihad – and all for just a £4 punt!

The England winger’s in the form of his career. Tuesday night triple strike was his fourth hat-trick since March for club and country!

Thought he couldn’t finish? Think again.

His scoring exploits made him the biggest points scorer in Paddy Power Fantasy’s Tuesday night contest-winning line-up as he raked in 74.3 points for his stunning performance.

And another English goalscorer was on-hand to back him as Spurs finally got back to winning ways with a 5-0 drubbing of Crvena Zvezda at their new ground. That performance also saw Eric Lamela, Serge Aurier and goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga tally up fantasy points to help our shrewd selector pick up 321 total points.

Sterling and the Tottenham foursome were joined by Angel Di Maria, who created five chances and had three assists for PSG as they won 5-0 too away in Brugges.

Sounds a bit better than Colin Farrell’s trip.

The winner took top prize in the £12,000 contest, £1,200, from just an initial punt of £4!

That’s 300/1 odds for all you budding Carol Vordermans out there.
