Tottenham's victory over Europa League opponents Lyon ended in a brawl last night.
Bale struck two stunning free-kicks to give Tottenham a narrow lead against Lyon â€“ but his late winner sparked ugly clashes between the two benches.
His first, from 35 yards, was cancelled out by Samuel Umtitiâ€™s unstoppable effort but the Welshman struck with almost the last kick of the Europa League last-32 first leg.
Spurs assistant head coach Steffen Freund celebrated it ecstatically in front of Lyonâ€™s bench, which sparked clashes on the touchline that continued after the final whistle.
Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas said: "There was lots of emotion after Garethâ€™s late goal and Stefan was showing his passion for Tottenham."
