Tottenham winger Gareth Bale knows opposition teams are now double marking him.

Bale recognises how wary Inter will be of him this time and how likely it is that Rafa Benitez will order Javier Zanetti or Sulley Muntari to assist Maicon in defending against him. But Bale says this is a common problem for wide players and something "the likes of Ronaldo" have to overcome.

"Obviously teams are trying to stop me, so I've got to think of other ways to get past them," said the Wales international.

"Against the world-class players, the likes of Ronaldo, teams double up all the time. Ronaldo still finds a way. And you've got to keep trying to improve your game and make it an all-round game, to kind of be unstoppable."
