Russian Chelsea superfan & Playboy pin-up makes cheeky request before watching team hammer Juventus (PHOTOS)

Russian Chelsea superfan & Playboy pin-up makes cheeky request before watching team hammer Juventus (PHOTOS)
London-based Russian model Maria Liman was in attendance as Chelsea routed Juventus 4-0 in their Champions League game at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night and had a revealing outfit request before the match.

Thomas Tuchel’s men swept the Italian visitors aside to move top of Group H on goal difference, booking a spot in the last 16 and avenging their defeat to Juve earlier in this season’s campaign.

The defending Champions League kings were inspired as a first-half goal from Trevoh Chalobah was followed by finishes from Reece James, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Timo Werner after the break as the Blues recorded one of their most impressive showings under Tuchel in his 50th game in charge.

Watching on proudly from the Stamford Bridge stands was Liman – who shot to fame during the 2018 World Cup as Russia’s ‘hottest football fan’.

Now based in London, Liman shared pictures of herself dressed in a Chelsea-themed colors as she posed with the pitch in the background.

The 27-year-old Rostov-born stunner said she had predicted the match would see four goals and was not left disappointed, although she had tipped the scoreline to be 3-1 to the hosts. 

Before the game, Liman had even shared a cheeky request with her 1.2 million followers, asking them which underwear she should don for the game to match her Chelsea-colored attire.

Former Playboy model Liman is an avid Blues supporter, also attending the Champions League game against Russian champions Zenit St. Petersburg at Stamford Bridge earlier this season.

On that occasion she prepared a special outfit made of Chelsea-themed footballs to cover her chest, while making a traditional Russian hat bearing the names of both teams. 

“I want a sexy game, a lot of goals and a good mood,” said the social media favorite before watching Chelsea pick up a 1-0 win against Zenit on that occasion.

She regularly posts messages of support to the team owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, congratulating the businessman on his birthday last month.

Liman will likely be watching avidly as Chelsea conclude their group stage campaign against Zenit in St. Petersburg on December 8.
