AN UNLUCKY football fan missed out on a whopping £250k payday after a 94th-minute Chelsea goal last night.
Emerson Palmieri’s injury-time strike denied the punter the Super Six jackpot in heartbreaking style.
Sky Sports pundit Tim Sherwood looked on in horror as the late goal went in for the Blues.
It meant that the fan named Alan Davis missed out on the huge prize for predicting six correct scores.
He was made to settle for a £6,000 prize instead for getting five scores and one result right.
Sky’s studio guests were so distraught when Chelsea scored that presenter Julian Warren was forced explain what was happening.
He said: “We need to stress this is nothing against Chelsea – they’re through to the quarter-finals.
“But a Super Six player needed no more goals for £250,000 but that goal has denied them.”
The goal from Emerson sealed a comfortable victory for Chelsea over Atletico Madrid in their Champions League tie.
Thomas Tuchel’s men won 2-0 on the night to seal a 3-0 aggregate victory which booked their place in Friday’s quarter-final draw.
Hakim Ziyech opened the scoring in the second leg in the 34th minute against the LaLiga leaders.
And there were no more goals until the dying moments when Emerson’s strike denied the Super Six punter a huge payday.
