Another for the list of bad beats - two late Joselu goals help Real Madrid come from behind, snatching away a $132K payout for this bettor.

The Perfect Double That Never Was

Many sports bettors would have raised an eyebrow looking at this ticket. A Stake customer placed a $5,822.61 double (two-leg parlay) on the German sides to win their respective UCL semi-final second-leg matches.

  • Borussia Dortmund to win against Paris Saint Germain at odds of 6.00
  • Bayern Munich to win against Real Madrid at odds of 3.80
  • Total odds: 22.80
  • Estimated payout: $132,755.51

The generous prices were because both German teams were playing away. Last week, Dortmund beat PSG (1 - 0) at home, and Bayern drew 2 - 2 with Madrid at the Allianz Arena.

However, Dortmund delivered an impressive performance in the French capital, leading to another 0 - 1 victory, which secured them a place in this season’s Champions League final.

All eyes turned to Madrid. Would Bayern be able to topple the Spanish giants and make it an all-German final?

Although against the run of play, Bayern took the lead in the 68th minute through Alphonso Davies’ strike. The clock was running down as Madrid poured forward, looking for a goal that would keep their UCL hopes alive.

The breakthrough came in the 88th minute from an unlikely hero. After Neuer spilled a long shot, journeyman striker Joselu reacted quickest to poke the ball into the net.

Three minutes later, the Santiago Bernabeu erupted into scenes of delirium as Joselu struck again. Despite 13 minutes of added-on time, Bayern Munich couldn’t find the goal they needed.
