Epic Man United comeback sees punters sting Paddy for over £160,000

A late Matic winner caused Monday mayhem for our traders as we paid out on victories for both Crystal Palace and The Red Devils…


It wasn’t just Jose Mourinho smiling from ear-to-ear after Man United late heroics at Selhurst Park last night, Paddy Power’s punters were sporting a massive grin as well thanks to our 2 Up You Win promotion.

That’s because after Nemanja Matic’s injury time thunderbolt hit the back of the net to seal a rousing 3-2 recovery for United, we were left counting the cost.

It all came about as strikes from Andros Townsend and Patrick van Aanholt had The Eagles soaring to an unlikely 2-0 advantage as early as three minutes into the second half and 2 Up You Win left us biting our finger nails after shelling out early on Palace winning.

Then came our traders’ worst nightmare as Chris Smalling and Romelu Lukaku brought The Red Devils right back into the contest and with mere seconds left on the watch, super Serb Matic landed a scorching winner for Mourinho’s men.

That glorious goal meant we had to watch over £163,000 go out the door after paying out on both sides to win.

Thanks a lot Roy!
