It was a good game, some of my assumptions after watching these players for a decade were confirmed;
Ibrahimovic is exceptionally strong physically. His main weakness is his inconsistency
Dani Alves is a bit overrated
Best way to play Barcelona is to man mark Xavi, but thats a job only 1 or 2 players could do (Essien or Mascherano perhaps )
Dani was out of form, hes not over-rated..
Xavi and iniesta are the main Barca players.. Messi cant always create chances by himself.. so if you keep Iniesta and Xavi bogged down, you will have an attackless Barca.. but as you said, its really hard to bog these 2 down.. only top class Defensive mids with good strength to dominate them can do that job.. i would add L. Diarra, De Rossi and Frings with the other 2 u said who can do that..
