Soon after, photos corroborated the sighting.
To be clear, at the time of writing, it’s unclear why the Juve midfielder would be at the game.

Could Wolves try to sign Khedira?
Those rumours have popped up in the Birmingham Mail this weekend, where readers have been told:
The excitement among Wolves fans has been building in the last 24 hours after reports linking them with a move for Sami Khedira.
The 32-year-old has subsequently been linked with a move to Wolves. Not only that, it’s suggested Wolves are ‘in talks’ for a ‘cut-price fee’.
Khedira’s contract at Juventus
Now 32, Khedira is under contract at Juve until 2021.
The Bianconeri also retain an option to extend the deal by another 12 months.
Khedira has been plying his trade in Turin since the summer of 2015, when he joined Juve on a free transfer from Real Madrid.
In three seasons at the Allianz Stadium, Khedira has contributed 19 goals and 10 assists across 77 league appearances.
However, last season the midfielder only played 10 Serie A matches for the Scudetto champions.
