Dubliner €9,100 Richer Thanks To Liverpool’s Champions League Triumph
A Dubliner has over 9,000 reasons to be joining in Liverpool’s Champions League victory celebrations following a bet struck over 8 months ago which has finally paid dividends.
The savvy punter placed a €100 wager in a BoyleSports shop in the capital in the middle of September last year, picking Chelsea to win the Europa League at 6/1 and Liverpool to win the Champions League at 12/1.
The bet was struck a day before Liverpool got their Champions League campaign under way with a 3-2 victory over Paris St Germain at Anfield, while two days later Chelsea’s Europa League adventure began with a 1-0 victory in Greece against PAOK.
Over 8 months later, the patient Dubliner was on the edge of their seat this week as Chelsea beat Arsenal 4-1 in the Europa League decider, while Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham in Madrid sparked celebrations and a frantic search for the old betslip.
The long run to silverware for both Premier League sides in Europe this season meant the lucky Irish punter was able to return to the shop and pick up a grand total of €9,100.
They say good things come to those who wait and hats off to the Dublin customer who showed great foresight back in September and was happy to wait to land the jackpot.
They grabbed the early prices and we hope they enjoy splashing out with their €9,100 reward.
