Barca and Iniesta blew 3 really good chances, the scoreline could have and should have been bigger. Play Ozil and Kaka, and the Madrid midfield would get overrun very badly.
His idea is right - try to stifle Barca in the middle of the park - United did it in a CL semi in 08, and Mourinho did it with Inter. But trying to do the same with Pepe just isn't working out.
You can't play Barca at their game - no one can.
