Fifth-placed Inter are a distant 15 points behind champions and runaway leaders Juventus, but only six adrift of second-placed Napoli and four behind Milan in the race for Champions League qualification.
Stramaccioni is optimistic Inter can hit back to challenge the clubs above them with 10 games of the season remaining.
“There are still 10 rounds to go, we are at the moment unable to do what we want to, especially in the first half,” said Stramaccioni. “We came out for the second half fortunate not to be behind.
"Paradoxically, we did better after the break and that was when Bologna scored. It was a heavy blow.
“We reacted and went close to an equaliser, but the result is what counts. It is not a positive time for us, but I see other teams who have had problems.
"It is a very balanced League and apart from Juventus every team can cause each other problems.
“We lost Ricky Alvarez to injury, but other than him it was the same side that did so well at Catania, scoring three goals. In the first half we didn’t achieve anything that we were trying to do.”
