Worldwide Acca lands one intrepid punter a near £3k payout
When building an Acca, one forward-thinking Ladbrokes punter has shown that casting your net far and wide can really pay off.
From Scandinavia to South America, our latest #BookieBashing hero correctly called 17 matches from across the globe with their £5 stake landing them a handsome £2,770.74 win.
The magic began to unfold when Norwegian second-tier outfit Sandefjord scored an 85th minute goal to beat Bryne on Sunday afternoon.
Grabbing a late winner is exciting enough but what followed will now go down in punting folklore.
Germany’s Berliner Dynamo saw off Schönberg 5-2 but were made to work hard for the victory having been pegged back to 2-2 after taking a two-goal lead early on. Thank goodness for Dennis Srbeny and his match-saving brace.
Throughout the afternoon the victories kept on coming and this hot streak set-up a barnstorming evening’s entertainment.
Roma to beat Palermo? No problem. New York City to do the business against Columbus Crew? Never in doubt.
As we headed deeper into the night there was just one more leg to tick off.
And, as it turned out, the pulsating clash between Paraguayan rivals Olimpia Asuncion and River Plate Asuncion was the best of the bunch.
With Olimpia riding high in the league and city rivals River Plate languishing near the bottom of the table this one looked like a no-brainer on paper.
However, our big shot bettor must’ve had proverbial kittens watching what took place.
Roque Santa Cruz (remember him?) gave Olimpia a 12th-minute lead before River Plate hit back just after the half-hour mark.
Olimpia then re-took the lead before half-time and were pegged back again. Not to worry, Cristian Riveros was on-hand to re-establish the hosts’ advantage.
What happened next? Yep, you guessed it, an incredible third equaliser for the visitors.
But that’s enough suspense.
Olimpia went on to eventually secure a memorable 5-3 victory and the rest, as they say, is history.
