Bayern Victory Sparks Seven Figure Payout
Bayern Munich won the Champions League sparking a seven figure payout for William Hill. Arjen Robben's late goal sparked a huge payout for the numerous William Hill punters that backed Bayern to bounce back from last year.
William Hill offered an Even money shot on Bayern lifting the trophy as their priority price in the build up to the game which punters snapped up, while the 5/2 about Bayern winning a match in which both sides scored, sparked a £250k payout.
"Robben was the third best backed player on the first goalscorer market, while Bayern have been the best backed side in the Champions League all season," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "This is a huge result for the punters."
Robert Lewandowski had been the best backed player to open the scoring and he is 4/7 to make the move in the summer to Bayern Munich.
"It was quite telling that Lewandowski did not take the penalty," said Crilly. "Could it be that he did not want to score against his future employers?"
Arjen Robben may have scored the winning goal but William Hill think hecould be on his way this summer and is 4/7 to have left the club by September 3rd.
