Liverpool Fans Miss Champions League Win By Going To Gent, Not Genk by drewsman(m): 4:13pm On Oct 24, 2019
A hapless pair of Liverpool fans managed to miss their team's 4-1 Champions League win in Belgium on Wednesday despite making the midweek trip. The two travelling supporters arrived in plenty of time for a match at Gent. The problem was that their beloved Reds were playing over 150 kilometres away in Genk -- with a "k".

According to Sporza, the supporters only realised their error 30 minutes before kick-off after failing to locate the Genk stadium, largely because it is on the other side of Belgium. They were able to find a bar and watch the match where they posed for a slightly embarrassing photo with their match tickets.

However, there is a silver lining of sorts, with local side KAA Gent (who, for an extra layer of confusion, are based in the city of Ghent) offering the pair complimentary tickets to attend their Europa League tie against Wolfsburg the following evening. Gent also offered to provide the lost Liverpool supporters a crash course in Belgian geography to hopefully avoid similar mishaps in the future.

Still, it could be worse. They could have been one of the 400 Athletic Bilbao fans who missed the 2012 Europa League final by charting a course to the wrong country entirely after mistakenly travelling to the Hungarian capital of Budapest instead of the match venue in Bucharest, Romania.

Honestly, but they won emphatically. Thanks to their superior "fire power"

Football is really very exciting especially when you have a favorite team and support it emotionally. I even bet through https://777score.com to get some extra money because Manchester United always wins
