Wales are undefeated in their last three meetings with Marc Wilmots' side, most recently defeating them 1-0 in Euro qualifying in June last year.
"We're like their bogey team, aren't we?" Bale said ahead of the game in Lille on Friday.
"Hopefully that edge gets into their heads - you never know. We will definitely draw on those qualifiers, it gives us more knowledge on them.
"We know how to play against them and how they play. We know it will be a different game from the qualifiers and it is a more pressurised situation.
"But we understand what they are about, how they work, and we will hone our game plan to try and stop them but help our attack."
