Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich was in the stands in Baku on Wednesday evening to watch his first competitive Blues game in more than a year.

Abramovich, however, attended the Boston New England Revolution earlier this month, winning Chelsea 3-0.

His presence at the Europa League final against Arsenal led to speculation about the future of boss Maurizio Sarri.
Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck saw a meeting with Juve counterparty Andrea Agnelli at the club's club hotel before the game.
Agnelli is on UEFA affairs in Baku, but the Italian outlet Tuttosport says the couple also met to discuss Sarri's future.

They add that Sarri and Agnelli met at the five-star hotel Four Seasons, but the moment was not captured on camera.
Juventus wants to hire Sarri after Max Allegri's departure. The Blues boss is aware of Juve's offer and is known to be seduced by the opportunity to work in Turin.
And the Serie A club is more and more confident to lure Sarri back to Italy, so they have informed players that the next 60-year-old will be in charge of the 60-year-old.
