Two Liverpool fans have been left red-faced after travelling to Gent instead of Genk for the Reds' Champions League clash on Wednesday.
The locations are over 150 kilometres away from each other in Belgium, but take around two hours to travel by car between them.
Sadly the hapless supporters only realised their error half an hour before the match was due to start in Genk, and had to make do with watching the clash in a local cafe.
Sporza report that the pair had been seen wandering around the city centre of Gent in search of the stadium, but eventually accepted their blunder and took an embarrassed photo.
The two men were tracked down by a Belgian radio station where they revealed they had forked out 130 each on rail tickets, as well as 60 on match tickets.

Gent have offered them a pair of VIP tickets for their home game in January with....Genk. Can guess where they'll end up for that!

That reminds me of a story from a few years ago where a lorry driver from Eastern Europe ended up at Gibraltar Point, in Skegness, when he was suppose to be going to Gibraltar, the place next to Spain.

Then there was the taxi driver who took Earl Spencer's daughter from Allthorp to Stamford Bridge. Unfortunately his satnav took them to the village of that name in North Yorkshire.
