The two teams meet tonight in the Europa League.
"Gareth Bale is becoming one of the most complete players in Europe, because he is proving always decisive as well as having great quality. That distinguishes a good player from a great champion.
Bale famously tore through the Inter defence when these sides met in the Champions League in 2010, so has Stramaccioni studied any measures?
"I think it important to play in an attentive way, although we know that at this moment we haven't got much room to make changes.
"In any case, the match is Tottenham-Inter and not Bale-Inter, that's how I see it. We will look out for him as we will all their players.
"In order to get a good result, we will need a great performance, as Tottenham are perhaps the form team in the Premier League. That's not an alibi, but we will hopefully be able to count on more motivation from our emergency situation."
