ONE lucky punter pocketed £79,568.57 after a big night of European and domestic football on Wednesday night.
The William Hill customer correctly picked the winner of 13 matches across the Champions League, Europa League and the Championship.
The bettor placed a £2 bet at odds of 39,783/1.
Among the 13 winners, Liverpool edged Atletico Madrid 3-2 in a five-goal thriller, while PSG fought from behind to beat RB Leipzig in the Champions League.
Elsewhere in the Champions League Real Madrid and Ajax pulled off demanding victories.
Los Blancos smashed Shakhtar Donetsk 5-0 while Ajax produced a surprise 4-0 hammering over Borussia Dortmund.
While in the Championship, Swansea beat West Brom 2-1 and Preston came from behind with two second-half goals to defeat Coventry 2-1.
William Hill spokesperson Rupert Adams said: “One of our customers hit the jackpot on Wednesday night as he amazingly managed to correctly predict the result of 13 football matches.
"Landing monster odds like this is rare, but clearly not impossible!
“His £2 bet won him £79,568.57. There must have been a few nervous moments along the way, including the overturned penalty decision in the Atletico Madrid versus Liverpool game.”
