The Welshman had fans roaring with laughter over the weekend when he used his face mask to cover his face and have a quick nap when not substituted on against Alaves.
It's clear that the 30-year-old is coming up with new ideas to keep himself entertained and this evening saw him bust out the binoculars - kind of.
Bale was seen with a roll of wrist tape up to his face with his hand cupped in a circular motion just 15 minutes into the game, searching for something.

While fans across the world seem to be enjoying Bale's new lust for life, Spanish media have slammed the former Tottenham Hotspur man's actions.
Marca reporter Ruben Jimenez ripped into the winger and stated per Wales Online: "Bale hasn't contributed anything to Real Madrid's journey to the league title."
"He walked for a while against Eibar and played just over an hour against Mallorca.
"Zinedine Zidane no longer orders him to warm up. As with James Rodriguez, the coach is very clear on who he can count on for this final stretch of the season, who is going to give their all to win the title and who feels more comfortable in the stands.
Gareth Bale. 350k+ a week. Playing in sunny Spain. Trolling Madrid every week. Plays golf now and again.
This guy is really living his best life! :sob:pic.twitter.com/PWNElp9pHS

"It's clear that Bale cannot be resuscitated at Real Madrid. If he still has a drop of football left in his boots, it's up to him to decide. His agent doesn't stop saying that he is going to fulfil his contract with the club, which ends in 2022.
"Does he intend to be laughing in the stands until 2022? Does he not have self-esteem, desire for revenge or to play football?"
