Someone in Monaghan is very very happy this morning after bagging nearly a quarter of a million from a €1 bet. One bloody euro!
The Paddy Power customer placed a ten-fold accumulator over the weekend on the win-draw-win both teams to score market, at odds of 245,669/1. And of course it all came down to an injury time goal from Marseille's Michy Batsuayi last night to settle it.
