Champions League: PSG's epic comeback vs Atalanta costs punter $233k bet

PSG ruined a punters bet

Paris Saint-Germain pulled off a stunning comeback against Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday night. 

It looked as if the Ligue 1 champions had blown it in the first half, going 1-0 down to the competition outsiders when Mario Pašalić beautifully curled the ball past Keylor Navas. 

Atalanta's 26th-minute lead was held all the way up to the 90th minute when something magical happened.  

It was the unlikely Marquinhos who tapped in the equaliser as the clock ticked into added time, then it was the even more unlikely Eric Choupo-Moting who scored the winner two minutes later. 

Bear in mind - this is the same Choupo-Moting that was RELEGATED from the Premier League with Stoke City in 2018.

Two years later, he's sending PSG into the semi-final of Europe's top club competition. 

What a comeback, what a Champions League moment. 

It was a famous night for PSG

We all love the drama and we couldn't have asked for much more from Atalanta vs PSG. 

But one football fan will be absolutely furious the Serie A side couldn't hold on for the win. 

That's because PSG's win ruined his $233,963 bet. Yes, really, check out pictures of the ridiculous accumulator below:

Unreal. You'd be absolutely fuming if you didn't cash out, right?

Let's hope he did. That's a tidy $17,983 he could have made of a $25 bet.  

Just imagine if RB Leipzig do go on to beat Atletico Madrid on Thursday night! Someone will be billing Neymar for $233k.  

Neymar has ruined a punters evening

Although, that probably won't make much difference to the PSG star, who earns around £620,000 per week. 

Money doesn't always guarantee success, but Neymar and co. are into the Champions League semi-finals after dumping out Atalanta. 

We wouldn't bet against them winning the whole thing either. Maybe I'll stick $25 on that? The odds won't be anywhere near +935853 like they are above, though...
