Forget the Premier League and the Champions League. One plucky punter turned a fiver into £3,500 earlier this week thanks to four late goals in South America.
The online bettor backed both teams to score in one Turkish match and eight South American clashes on Monday. And with 80 minutes played in Madureira EC v Volta Redonda it looked like a lost cause.
However, with the match locked at 0-0 with 10 minutes of normal time remaining, the hosts took the lead before doubling their advantage in the 93rd minute.
But that wasn’t the end of the drama. While the game may have been all but over, the visitors miraculously managed to score a penalty in the 95th minute to keep our player’s speculative bet alive.
If that wasn’t enough, a 92nd minute equaliser for Juventud Unida against Douglas Haig in Argentina was equally as crucial to turn £5 into £3,513.51.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “There may not be much going on in the world of football but there are still winners to be had and this plucky punter is a perfect example of exactly that.”
