Cork Footie Punter Strikes €5,000 Champions League Win

This season’s Champions League kicked off in style for one Cork native this week when six simple predictions saw them scoop a four-figure sum.

Chelsea and Liverpool may have sunk to defeats on Tuesday but one wager placed by an anonymous customer in a BoyleSports shop in Cork triggered celebrations after they correctly forecast six basic outcomes.

In the Chelsea v Valencia fixture, they predicted less than 3 goals at odds of 20/23, more than 10 corners (also 20/23) and less than 40 booking points (11/10), where a yellow card is worth 10 points and a red 25.

They all landed, and with less than 3 goals in Napoli v Liverpool (23/20), less than 50 booking points (20/23) and over 10 corners (7/10), all six predictions were on the money.

A confident €100 stake meant they walked away with a grand total of €5,015.67 for the efforts.

Chelsea and Liverpool got off to a bad start in the Champions League but it was a different story for…

our Cork punter who we must congratulate for their savvy predictions.

Good luck to them with their winnings.
