Kylian Mbappe was in attendance as Gareth Bale’s new club Los Angeles FC pulled further clear in America’s top division.
MLS leaders LAFC signed Welsh wizard Bale on a one-year deal on a free transfer in a shock move for the former Real Madrid star.
And the Paris Saint-Germain forward showed he won’t be the only big name in California by attending their match on Sunday night.
The MLS Twitter account posted: ‘‘sup @KMbappe. Taking in #LAFC x #RBNY at the Banc.’

Bale, 32, spent nine seasons with the Spanish giants after joining for a then-world-record fee of £85million but his time there petered out amid fan frustration with his frequent injuries.
His contract with Los Blancos finally ran out this summer and he departed on a free transfer.
With the 106-cap international keen to get regular game time ahead of Wales’ World Cup crusade in November, several clubs were vying for his services, including Championship side Cardiff.

The win leaves LAFC four clear at the top of the Western Conference with a game in hand
But the former Tottenham and Southampton star plumped for Steve Cherundolo’s west-coast outfit LAFC on a 12-month contract.
And Mbappe, who signed a massive new contract this summer at PSG to reportedly make him the highest-paid player in the world, watched on at the Banc as LAFC won 2-0 after two goals in four minutes from Cristian Arango and Diego Palacios.
The result leaves them four points clear of second-placed Real Salt Lake in the Western Conference table, with a game in hand.
