Ambitious punter wins over £1,200 on bet placed in 90th minute of Chelsea vs Newcastle

Ambitious punter wins over £1,200 on bet placed in 90th minute of Chelsea vs Newcastle

The punter bagged over £1,200 after placing an £8 bet.

A punter won over £1,200 after placing an ambition bet in the 90th minute of Chelsea vs. Newcastle United.

The Carabao Cup quarter-final clash between Chelsea and Newcastle ended in a penalty shootout after Mykhailo Mudryk dramatically cancelled out Callum Wilson's opener in normal time.

In the 16th minute, Wilson pounced on a sloppy Benoit Badiashile mistake to slot past Djordje Petrovic to make it 1-0.

Newcastle seemed destined to book their spot in the semi-finals until Kieran Tripper's error allowed Mudryk to level in the 92nd minute.

The Blues won the subsequent shootout 4-2 as Trippier hit his spot-kick wide.

Mauricio Pochettino's team are now in the hat for the final four as he'll be looking for silverware in his debut campaign at the club.

But the biggest winner of the night was a punter, who placed an incredible bet in the 90th minute of last night's tie.

The person backed Chelsea to equalise and bet on both Conor Gallagher and Bruno Guimaraes to be booked, which they did.

£8 was placed on the bet, resulting in winnings of £1,288. Not bad for a last-minute bet.

Chelsea, meanwhile, await their fate ahead of tonight's draw, which includes Fulham, Middlesbrough and the winner of Liverpool vs. West Ham United.

Speaking to the club's official website after his side advanced to the semi-finals, Pochettino said: "It was a really good game.

"We suffered when we conceded, it was our mistake. I said to the players to always believe until the end. The goal was possible because we believed.

"Sometimes in football you need some luck, and it came. Credit to the players because they were fantastic. We are so happy. The fans and the club deserve this sort of feeling. It's a big motivation. We are waiting for the draw tomorrow."
