A Ghanaian has lost a GH¢10,000 bet after Real Madrid beat Atletico Madrid 5-3 on penalties in their UEFA Champions League final played at the San Siro in Rome on Saturday.
Patricia Nyarko [according to her betting slip from Supabets] staked GH¢10 000, and with the odds for the bet set at 2.48, the person who placed the bet had the chance of winning a GH¢24,800, which would have earned him or her a GH¢14,800 profit.
Things looked to be going well when Real Madrid took the lead through a Sergio Ramos goal in the 15th minutes.
However, things fell apart when Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco equalised for Atletico Madrid in the 79th minute.
Football betting is for the duration of 90 minutes, and so once the game entered extra time, Patricia Nyarko lost the GH¢10,000, having bet that Real Madrid would win in regulation time.
