Even though they lost 2-1 in the game itself, congratulations (or something) to Aberdeen FC, who broke the record for longest away journey in a European cup competition with their UEFA Europa League trip to Kairat Almaty, a 1-way trip if driving of almost 8,000km exactly (and 87 hours). Kairat will of course equal that record next week:
Is this simple benchmark of 8,000km the furthest any club has ever had to travel for an away fixture (not counting any 'neutral' venue competitions like the Club World Cup). My guess is 'probably not' considering other continents (or countries, Russia) are bigger... but let the discussion begin.
