LaLiga: The best Atletico Madrid ever... as always | MARCA in English

A minute silence for all the tickets and bet slips that have been drowned by unexpected goals conceded in the Champions League tournament so far this season. Now let take a moment to look at one of the unlucky punter, who had completely missed in taking €250,000 home on Thursday night following the defeat of Spanish giants Atletico Madrid at the hands of German club RB Leipzig.

Atletico Madrid could be said t have started the Champions League slow, as they repeatedly put up a poor performance in the first half of the game. The Bundesliga team, under the control of manager Julian Nagelsmann’s tactics, was able to find the back of the net five minutes into the second half through one of the most talked-about youngster Dani Olmo, who is currently being backed with odds with some best casino sites online to leave the club before 27.

While the Spanish giants were able to put the scoreline back to a stalemate through a subbed-in Portuguese talent Joao Felix in the 71st minute, not long after the Tyler Adams was able to put the ball in the net in the 88th minute through a deflection that leaves Jan Oblak no choice but to watch the ball enter the back of the net.

That 88th minute striker of Adams sent the Bundesliga team straight into the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League for the first time in the club’s history.

This became an incredible feat and probably the German team, who was promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time back in 2016, the best feat as they are now just a match away from qualifying for the final. They will be facing French side Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday for the semi-final of the Champions League.

As it is a source of joy for the Red Bulls, the same can’t be said for this unlucky bettor, who had immense confidence in Atletico Madrid knocking out Leipzig to complete his 13-selection accumulator. That can be quite painful if it happened to you.

A Twitter user with the name Alex uploaded a picture of the betting slip using the caption: “Moment of silence for the lad let down by Atletico Madrid for €249,553.58. Sickening.”

But this wasn’t the first betting slip that had met a tragic loss this week. A bettor also missed out on $230k in a 14-fold accumulator slip right after French side Parish Saint-Germain came from the back to defeat Atalanta 2-1 in the Champions League Round of 16. It’s the hope, that hope of a team still having a chance to score a goal with the little minutes remaining that kills you; there are some best payout casinos online that ensures fast cash out.

PSG were trailing 1-0 goal behind the Italian club Atalanta all through to the 89th minute of the game before Marquinhos was able to level the scoreline. Eri Chupo-Moting secured the winner in the 93rd minute of the match to secure a spot in the semi-finals.

These two bets have to be one of the most heart-rending bets that have been played in a long time.
