Seven-nil. Hands up who saw that coming.
Although Liverpool were favourites to win their game against Maribor, away matches in the Champions League can often prove tricky.
However, Jurgen Klopp’s side made light work of their Slovenian opponents, scoring four goals before half-time and then adding three more to their tally before the final whistle.
This was Liverpool’s biggest ever European away win, bettering the 5-0 victories over KR Reykjavík in 1964, Crusaders in 1976 and FC Haka in 2001.
And it came off the back of one of the dullest matches of the 2017-18 campaign so far. This was the perfect tonic for Liverpool fans after sitting through Saturday’s painful 0-0 draw against Manchester United.
21 people bet on 7-0 Liverpool win with William Hill
We asked if anyone saw this result coming, but we know for certain that at least 21 people did.
According to William Hill, 21 individuals correctly predicted that Liverpool would beat Maribor 7-0 on Tuesday night at odds of 80/1.
How is it possible to be that lucky?
But one of the 21 had an absolute nightmare
But one of the 21 - the one who placed the largest bet, £10 - has made headlines for all the wrong reasons.
In the 86th minute, with Liverpool leading 6-0, the fan from Cheshire hit the panic button - also known as the cash-out button - and pocketed £153.76.
Not a bad return, but nowhere near the amount he would have won had he been braver.
Trent Alexander-Arnold’s 90th-minute goal made it 7-0 to the visitors and the fan who cashed-out missed out on £657. He would have ended up winning £810.
'He must have been kicking himself'
“You can completely understand why he cashed out as with just 4 minutes to go the bet was losing,” William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said.
“But he must have been kicking himself when Trent Alexander-Arnold netted in the 90th minute.”
You can say that again, Rupert.
But while the cash-out may have backfired, at least he still ended the night with a profit and an emphatic Liverpool victory.
C’est la vie.
