The Welsh winger in particular is a player that the Spurs faithful seemingly keep a close eye on, especially given the contrasting fortunes he has had in the Spanish capital city this season.
Since the turn of the year the flying attacker has been made into something of a scapegoat by the Madrid fans and the Spanish media.
Bale had a chance to increase his popularity with the travelling support last night, with the former Spurs man racing through on the Atletico goal in the early exchanges, only to see a crucial effort saved by home custodian Jan Oblak.
Tottenham fans had mixed reactions to Bale’s performance, with their comments on Twitter ranging from pleas for him to return, comments about his hairstyle and his free-kick taking ability.
With the Madrid derby ending 0-0 and Bale failing to endear himself as Madrid’s hero, here are the best tweets from the White Hart Lane faithful.
Did Bale really put in a £100m performance today? Pfttttt #Levyed— PochKnowsBest (@thfc_edits) April 14, 2015
What I've learnt from this #MadridDerby (judging by Bale & Torres' hair) is that there aren't any decent hairdressers in Madrid.— Alexia (@Alexia_thfc) April 14, 2015
Remember when Bale was at Spurs and didn't look like a sad spaniel...— Corbit (@Corbit_THFC) April 14, 2015
Who wants Bale & Modric anyway when we have got Townsend & Paulinho.— Diane G (@DianeGreen_thfc) April 14, 2015
Bale and Kroos should be taking more free kicks for Real, Ronaldo is so inconsistent— macca (@macca_THFC) April 14, 2015
