GARETH BALE was spotted trolling Zinedine Zidane again after he was left on their win over Granada.
The hard-fought 2-1 victory made it NINE in a row for Los Blancos who moved to within a win of the La Liga title.
Ferland Mendy and Karim Benzema bagged the goals before Machis pulled one back for the hosts.
Meanwhile, Welsh wonder Bale failed to get a kick for the second-straight game – but at least he’s seeing the funny side.
He had fans roaring with delight on Friday as he used his face mask to jokingly pretend he was having a quick nap as he watched on as his team-mates beat Alaves.
Now the 30-year-old is continuing to produce new ideas to entertain himself, this time busting out some imaginary binoculars.
He was spotted holding a roll of tape up to his face as he cupped his hands in a circular motion after just quarter of an hour.
And Spanish fans we quick to joke Bale was trying to spot the nearest golf course for a quick nine holes after again going unused.
The Spanish media have been quick to parody Bale’s “golfer” persona and continued to use the quip as an opportunity to apparently mock him.
The £350,000-a-week star does not seem to care what they think though, with potentially only a handful of games left in his seven-year stay in the Spanish capital.
Zidane only used two or his five permitted substitutions as Madrid held on in southern Spain to go four points clear of Barcelona with two games to play.
Real also have the head-to-head edge over their Catalan rivals as they near a first LaLiga title since 2017.
Mendy channelled club legend Roberto Carlos with his early opener as he beat a couple of men before thundering the ball into the roof of Rui Silva’s net.
Benzema made it 2-0 after just sixteen minutes as he ran onto Modric’s ball and fired home.
Machis became the first player in 506 minutes of football to beat Thibaut Courtois after the break but Madrid hung on to edge closer to glory.
