Two travelling Liverpool fans were forced to watch Wednesday evenings 4-1 Champions League victory in Genk on TV after going to the Belgian city of Gent by mistake.
Belgian media reported on Thursday morning that the two unnamed fans watched the match in an Irish bar in the Belgian city of Gent, around 80 miles from Genk which is close to the Dutch border including a photo of the disgruntled pair holding their match tickets.
According to the report it was just 30 minutes before kick-off when the fans realised their error, leaving little time to complete the 90-minute journey to the Luminus Arena, where two goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain helped the Reds to a 4-1 win.
The fans had reportedly spent 70 each on their match tickets and 150 each on train tickets, a total of 440 just to watch their team in action from a foreign pub.
But there was some good news for the two fans: KAA Gent, who face Wolfsburg in the Europa League on Thursday evening, extended an invitation via Twitter for them to attend the match.
