Where’s Gareth Bale hiding?

86 Minutes. 18 passes. 0 goals. 0 assists. O shots. 0 chances created. 0 tackles. One incensed Roy Keane.

So lacklustre was Gareth Bale's performance for Real Madrid last night during their Champions League semi-final first leg vs Juventus in Turin, it caused ITV pundit Roy Keane to let rip in his post-match assessment, accusing the Welsh forward of "giving nothing", "taking the easy option" and - most damning of all - saying of Real, "you can’t win a game with 10 men".

Harsh? Perhaps. But then if you watched the game you'll have at some point forgotten Bale was on the pitch. Hell, we even forgot he was in the stadium for a few minutes. Even his teammates seemed unsure where the £77m playmaker was hiding - and it wasn't for the first time this season either.

Here we've picked a few photographs from recent football matches where Bale has gone missing. Your job? To find him.
