Chelsea -supporting Russian Playboy model Maria Liman cheered on Thomas Tuchel's side to victory at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening while wearing an unusual garment.
Maria has built up a social media following of 1.2 million over the course of the last four years, catching the eye of Blues fans thanks to her fandom of the club.
Despite regularly sending messages of support to Russian owner Roman Abramovich and his team, she found herself torn for their Champions League fixture this week.
Maria admitted before the game that she also supports Zenit, whom Chelsea went on to beat 1-0 thanks to Romelu Lukaku's header during the second-half of a tense meeting.
“Today is a hot day! My 2 favourite teams on the same pitch,” Liman said on Instagram.
“Today personally I can support Artem Dzyuba and I want to congratulate [Zenit keeper Stanislav Kritsyuk] on returning to Russia. Today I think the score will be 3-3."
She later added of her hopes for the evening: “Friendship and Russia will win. Chelsea with 'Russian roots'. I want a sexy game, a lot of goals and a good mood."
