One lucky punter bagged themselves over £8,000 with an incredible £20 bet on Man City's 9-0 mauling over Burton Albion in the League Cup semi-final fist leg on Wednesday.
Punter Wins £8K With Incredible 375/1 Bet On Man City 9-0 Mauling
When lower league teams face a Premier League giant, we often predict a hammering but more often than not the contests seem to be closer.
However, on Wednesday evening, Manchester City ran riot as they hammered League One Burton Albion 9-0 in their first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final.
While most expected City to coast past the Brewers, few expected for it to be so convincing, but City fan Phil (@Hampson84Phil) did and he acted on his instincts placing a £21.80 bet on City winning 9-0 with Kevin De Bruyne scoring the first goal at the odds of 375/1.
Sure enough, De Bruyne headed home the first goal of the game within five minutes. A further eight goals, four of them being scored by Gabriel Jesus, ensured City ran out 9-0 winners with Riyad Mahrez completing the rout in the 83rd minute which saw Phil made a remarkable return winning £8,196.80.

Phil took to Twitter to show his betting slip with the caption “Thank you Kevin for the first goal and thank you Riyad for the last goal.”
