Aston Villa helps savvy Betfair player win £19,000 from 970/1 football akka

VILLANS proved heroes this weekend for one lucky player who pocketed almost £20,000 thanks to Aston Villa’s dramatic late turnaround against Crystal Palace.

The Betfair customer bet £20 on an 11x football accumulator on Saturday’s Premier League, Championship, League One and Bundesliga games at whopping odds of 970/1.

And while teams like RB Leipzig and Oxford United routinely secured 3-0 victories, others weren’t so easy.

In fact, of this bettor’s 11 selections, three conceded the first goal and six won by a one-goal margin!

Heavyweights Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund made up for their deficits against West Ham and Freiburg with experienced defender Mats Hummels scoring the winning goal away from home in the 88th minute.

Championship duo Preston and Blackburn both held on with 2-1 wins over Plymouth and Middlesbrough before Ipswich beat Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 at Hillsborough.

Wigan and Exeter then followed suit by securing maximum points against Cambridge and Cheltenham respectively, so that mystery player needed Aston Villa to pull off a miracle against the Eagles.

Unai Emery’s side trailed 1-0 until the 87th minute when Colombia striker Jhon Duran scored a stunning equalizer at Villa Park.


And then, in the middle of stoppage time, Villa were awarded a penalty.

This player’s fingernails were probably shredded as midfielder Douglas Luiz stood over the penalty he scored after 98 minutes.

Newcastle completed the Acca thanks to Callum Wilson’s second-half penalty, giving our clever player a whopping £19,419 in his Betfair balance.
