One lucky punter has done the unthinkable and actually predicted the result of Manchester City's 9-0 demolition of Burton Albion in the EFL Cup.
Oh, and that's only one crazy part of this story.
In fact, the punter also predicted that Kevin De Bruyne would open the scoring for Pep Guardiola's men.
With his bet coming in at 375/1, Twitter user Phil placed down a cheeky £21.80 and secured an £8,196.80 return.

Gabriel Jesus scored four times in the first leg of the semi-final, with Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez all getting their names on the scoresheet.
"The result was good and, of course, we are already in the final but we have to play the second leg," Guardiola said (via BBC Sport).
"We will take it seriously. Burton have had an incredible tournament. They have to be so proud, they did so well.
"Strikers need to score goals, Gabriel Jesus has had chances in the last few games and today he has scored. He is so important.
"It is not easy to play this type of game against a lower team. We made good runs in behind and we took it seriously. After the second and third goal it was easier, we were faster and quicker.
"I am off for a glass of wine with Nigel Clough. I know how important his father was for English football, he was a genius. Incredible. It will be a pleasure to share some minutes with him."
Will City win the EFL Cup?
