Bale remains confident of finishing in the Champions League places.
He told The Sun: "We know what the job is we have to do and we are concentrating on ourselves. If we win all our games we qualify fourth, so it’s in our hands. We will be concentrating on every game looking to play our best football and getting maximum points. If we do that there’s nothing anyone else can do about it.
“Last year we should have been in the Champions League when we finished fourth but lost out because Chelsea won the final. It was hard to take, but there was nothing we could do about it. We had proved we could get in the top four again and didn’t buckle under too much pressure.
“It’s going to be coming down to the wire again this year and we know we have the ability to do it. Even if our own fans are a bit nervous we have to believe in ourselves and use any nerves that we have in a positive way.”
