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.
