Benfica fan travels to the WRONG Frankfurt ahead of Europa League clash

A Benfica supporter has ended up in the wrong Frankfurt ahead of his team’s Europa League clash at the Commerzbank-Arena on Thursday night.

Alvaro Oliveira, who made the 28-hour car journey from Lisbon, went to Frankfurt (Oder), rather than Frankfurt (Main) where the Eintracht actually play.

More than 600 kilometres separate the two German cities and, according to Google, it would take Alvaro almost six hours to get to the ground from his current location.

The trip, which included a stop-off in Paris on Wednesday, would’ve seen the fan drive past the main Frankfurt.

Eagle-eyed Instagram users were quick to notice the mistake after picking up on a series of road signs in the travelling fan’s ‘story’.

Frankfurt themselves joined in the fun, commenting ‘Ui’ on one of his posts, which translates to ‘hi’ in Portuguese.

The die-hard supporter realised his error after it went viral on social media, posting an update captioned ‘We’re f*cked’ in Portuguese.
