One unlucky fan was denied the chance to win the £250,000 Super Six jackpot after Emerson scored a 94th-minute goal in Chelsea's 2-0 victory over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Fans can win £250,000 by predicting six perfect scores, and one fan, Alan Davies, correctly predicted five other scores in the Sky competition. He needed Thomas Tuchel's side to hold on to their 1-0 lead to win the prize money, but Emerson's late strike robbed him of the quarter-million jackpot.

Tim Sherwood, who in the studio for the game, was extremely distraught after the second goal. He was visibly animated throughout the game, especially when Atletico threatened late on but relaxed as Chelsea cleared the danger.

However, Emerson's goal had the former Tottenham boss putting his head in his hands and feeling utterly sorry for the fan, Davies, as host Julian Warren forced to 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."

It wasn’t all bad news for Davis though, with his five scores and one result correct still pocketing him £6,000.
