A Benfica Football Club fan identified as Alvaro Oliveira, went to Frankfurt an der Oder rather than the main city of Frankfurt, where their Thursday night’s Europa League opponents Eintracht Frankfurt play.
Imagine heading out on a 28-hour road trip just to see your team play, only to find out when you ‘get there’ you’re actually six hours away from where they’re playing.
His initial excitement for the journey via Paris was shared through his Instagram Story.
But, with the help of social media users, he soon realised they were over 600km away from the stadium.
He wasn’t best pleased.
After Eintracht Frankfurt posted “Hi” in his comments, even he began to see the funny side, writing: “We’re now famous… for being stupid.”
To make matters worse, he went through all that trouble and effort only for Benfica to be knocked out of the Europa league by Frankfurt.
