A plucky Paddy punter from London put their European footballing knowledge to good use on Friday as their continent crossing 12-fold acca flew in at monster odds of 1,023/1. The straight WDW acca took in everything from The Championship to Romania, Portugal and beyond.
So, let’s start this thing off easy and work up to the hard part. In England our punter correctly tipped Watford to beat Derby which they did 2-1 on Friday night. Next up from the UK was Wolves to beat Leeds which came off via a lucky deflection and an own goal from United keeper Illan Meslier.
Off to France next where Lyon claimed an away win at Brest in a 3-2 thriller to keep them ahead of Paris St-Germain and in 2nd place in Ligue 1. There were two selections from Serie A in the mix with both Torino triumphing away at Cagliari and Fiorentina beating Spezia to keep this train rolling on.
Our punter took the Eurail up to Holland for the most comfortable win of this acca by some distance as FC Utrecht battered Willem II 6-0. A short jaunt over to Denmark bagged the next leg as AaB Aalborg were beaten by Midtjylland 2-0.
Then the Bundesliga was on the hitlist as Wolfsburg did the job at Arminia Bielefeld with an emphatic 3-0 win. It was a similar story down in La Liga where Betis got the better of Getafe courtesy of a 1-0 win thanks to an 84th-minute penalty. Phew!
Boavista triumphed over Moreirense 1-0 thanks to a goal from former Manchester United academy player Angel Gomes.
When you’ve got angels by your side, what can go wrong?
There was some more divine intervention for our punter as we jet off to Romania to take in the final two legs of this mega bet.
It was Arges Pitesti who held on to beat FC Voluntari after an early goal. In the final leg it was squeaky-bum time once again as Craiova just about got it done with a 1-0 win over Hermannstadt.
Truly, a Eurotrip to remember.
So, congratulations to this Paddy punter from London who definitely had that Friday feeling last weekend after turning £10 into a whopping £10,242.
