Punter wins £22k from £1 after Cardiff five-minute comeback from 3-0 down

November 2, 2021

CARDIFF'S five-minute flurry of goals saw them fight back from three goals down to draw 3-3 in a crazy game away to Stoke.

This miraculous turn helped a Ladbrokes punter pocket just shy of £22k from £1.

The bettor correctly predicted TEN outcomes in the Championship, with Cardiff vs Stoke being the only draw among his selections.

Cardiff managed to salvage a draw in the second half having previously lost eight games on the bounce.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "This could well be one of the most bizarre bets you'll see all season.

"Our plucky punter has correctly guessed the results of 10 Championship matches, nine of which were teams to win – and the one game in which they backed a draw consisted of a team picking up their first point in nine games.

"Having been 3-0 down away from home off the back of scoring just one goal in their previous eight matches. It's truly sensational stuff."

He added: "Not only that, but of the other nine games in question, just two of the teams picked in the ambitious 10-fold conceded a goal… you'll do well to find a more impressive accumulator this season."
