Man stands to win £1m from 1p bet on tonight's Champions League results

David Ramos

One man is set to complete a hundred million-to-one bet tonight if results in the two Champions League games go his way.

We've seen some spectacular bets on the Champions League before, but this one blows them all out of the water.

Yep, that's bookmaker Coral confirming that one of their customers is set to win a million pounds from a stake of just one penny. And what's more, both of tonight's results he needs to come in - AC Milan 0-2 Barcelona and Galatasaray 1-1 Schalke - both look pretty likely.

That's effectively odds of a hundred million to one - while some of these were pretty predictable, calling Juventus to beat Celtic 3-0 at home is particularly impressive. Or just a total fluke, depending on your point of view.

The punter in question then tweeted that he was "off to work for what could be the last time." Quite.

UPDATE: Well, all good things must come to an end. It was very close, considering he appears to have gotten the Galatasaray-Schalke result correct, and Milan-Barcelona is indeed 2-0: unfortunately, to Milan. On the plus side, Coral were kind enough to provide a consolation:
