RB Leipzig’s extraordinary Champions League comeback against Benfica helped Sunday Ehis win ₦2,431,430.45 with betPawa.
The Edo resident needed the German team to avoid defeat in one of the final matches on his ₦3,000 betslip. They were losing 2-0 until two 90th-minute goals changed everything.
He said: “I already gave up. Upon checking the score again, it was 1-2. Seeing that seven minutes was the added time, I had a bit of hope. Checking the final score and seeing 2-2, I broke my remote control out of excitement.
“My wife-to-be was sleeping. When I found out that I have won the ticket, I screamed, trying to wake her up, but she was not answering me, so I moved to the next flat, telling my neighbours to come and celebrate with me.”
