WE’VE all dreamt of putting together a long, completely random acca and sat watching it roll in on the same day.

And all from just a £6.60 total stake at William Hill!
But you feel they’ve earned it by correctly predicting the outcome of 18 games across nine different European countries.
Among them was an Arsenal win at 17/20, where you can imagine the palms sweating just that little bit more as VAR checked the 90th minute winner from Eddie Nketiah.
It wasn’t just match results selected in this punt, with some over 2.5 goals, under 2.5 goals, over 1.5 goals and both teams to score picks in there too.
The monster acca included picks from the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, Eredivisie, La Liga and second divisions in Spain, Belgian top flight, Greek Super League and Liga Portugal.
The bet was heading into its final selections in the evening kick-offs across the continent, with all eyes on Juventus vs Atalanta for over 2.5 goals, Lugo vs Villarreal B for the same, Real Madrid victory at Athletic Bilbao and Gent win at 13/10 in Belgium.
Juve trailed early thanks to another Ademola Lookman goal for the visitors.
Though an Angel di Maria penalty and Arkadiusz Milik goal had Juve ahead at the break – and wrapped up this leg of the acca.
Three or more goals in the La Liga 2 clash between Lugo and Villarreal B was also odds-against at 6/4 and looked destined for trouble when goalless at the break.

The visitors then missed a penalty on 50 minutes to no doubt kill the mood of the punter, before a red card for Lugo on 52 minutes got things going again.
Particularly when the visitors opened the scoring two minutes later and even more so when the home side equalised on 66 minutes.
Villarreal B would then bag a winner 60 seconds later to send the punter into dreamland.
Madrid made sure of the points in the 90th minute thanks to a Toni Kroos goal, adding to the only other goal of the game from Karim Benzema in the first half.
That just left a Gent win at St Truiden left, with eighth at home to sixth and the visitors at 13/10.
Those odds would disappear shortly into the game when St Truiden were reduced to 10-men on 16 minutes to make things a bit easier for Gent.
A 2-0 lead at half time was added to in the second half, meaning easy street (eventually) for this £37,000 win.
William Hill Spokesperson, Lee Phelps, said: “Sometimes you have to just admire some of the daring long-shots that land for our customers, with this Sunday’s brilliant 5656/1 18-fold certainly no exception.
“This skilled punter correctly predicted a variety of different outcomes across nine football divisions around Europe, netting a stunning £37k from just a £6.60 stake!”
