After scoring, the 33-year-old whipped off his shirt and GPS vest but then, for some reason, decided to pull his shorts partway down, too.
According to reports, the referee didn't catch a proper glimpse of the incident, so he managed to get away with it during the match.
Speaking after the game, Bobadilla referenced his celebration, telling reporters he hoped his missus hadn't seen.
He's reported to have said: "I regret my celebration. I hope my wife didn't see it.
"She should remain calm. It's all for her."
However, the Asociacion Paraguaya de Futbol (Paraguayan FA) have now opened an investigation into Bobadilla's celebration after the clip started doing the rounds on social media, the Sun reports.

Raul Prono, who is a member of the APF, said: "We have begun official proceedings, as we didn't receive any written complaints or anything from the referee.
"We got information from the internet, newspapers, and tapes, and they led us to this inquiry.
"We have notified Raul Bobadilla, and he has three days in which to appeal."
If found foul of the rules, Bobadilla could be whacked with a ban.
Earlier this year, a French footballer landed himself a five-year ban after biting an opposition player's penis.
The incident actually happened the year before after a second division clash between Terville and Soetrich.
The bizarre incident happened two players started fighting, before a a second Terville player attempted to break it up - but a player from the Soetrich team didn't take kindly this to and ended up getting involved and biting his opponent's penis.
The bite left the poor bloke needing 10 stitches and missing four days off work.
The Mosellan Football District's Emmanuel Saling said: "The events took place after the match, in the stadium car park. There was an altercation, an escalation and things got worse.
"It's quite rare to have sanctions of several years, there are less than 10 per year. The case was a bit saucy, but...there must have been some nasty tension, so the smiles on the disciplinary committee quickly faded."
