One Dublin punter backed Man Utd to thrash Leverkusen at odds of 500/1

The Christmas presents might be a bit more generous from one South Dublin punter who lumped money on United to thump the Bundesliga outfit last night.

While many predicted a difficult night at the office for David Moyes’ men given their up-and-down form this season and the fact that Leverkusen sit second in the German league, things couldn’t have been any easier for United in a 5-0 romp.

An online Paddy Power customer was rightly confident in the Red Devils coming up trumps and put €5 down on a 5-0 victory at odds of 500/1.

The South Dublin gambler collected a cool €2,500 thanks to Nani’s late finish to seal a good night’s work in Germany for the Premier League champions.

And they weren't the only Manchester team to help punters to a nice little wager. Two inspired punters bagged a 100/1 Scorecast on Sergio Aguero to score first and Man City to run out 4-2 winners, clearly not believing that City’s rearguard is showing any signs of improvement.
