Between Justin Bieber and Auston Matthews, who is a bigger fan of whom? It's hard to say after the superstar singer made an appearance at the Toronto Maple Leafs' 4-1 win against the San Jose Sharks on Friday.
Bieber, wearing a Matthews jersey, attended the game in Toronto with his dad Jeremy and sat behind the Maple Leafs' bench, then peppered his Instagram with excited posts.
In addition to photos, Bieber posted a video on his Instagram stories of the viewpoint from his seat including a zoom in on Toronto coach Mike Babcock's hand resting on a water bottle holder.
Needless to say, Bieber was excited to be there to see his beloved Maple Leafs, as also evidenced by the times he was shown on camera during the broadcast. He was downright jubilant when Toronto forward Morgan Rielly scored the go-ahead goal with early in the third period.
After the game, he posted a picture of Matthews with the caption, "The goat" and a picture of himself and his dad sharing a laugh.
A couple of months ago, Matthews posted a photo on Instagram of himself wearing a shirt from Bieber's Drew House clothing line.
It's clear there's a mutual admiration, and Bieber left one happy fan between the win and seeing Matthews score a dazzling goal.

He also got to see Patrick Marleau's return to Toronto, which the Maple Leafs recognized with a tribute video. Marleau shared a particularly close bond with Matthews and Mitchell Marner during his two seasons with Toronto. Marleau signed with San Jose, where he'd played 19 seasons, on Oct. 8.
