I'm sorry, but this is crap. Normally teams playing ultra-defensively against Barcelona look like they can do something on the counterattack. Bayer Leverkusen don't look like they know what a counterattack is. The hosts win a free kick a little way into the Barcelona half and promptly hoof it straight out of play. Whether they meant to do that or not is unclear, but that was a complete waste of an opportunity to test the centre back pairing of Carles Puyol and Javier Mascherano. Dire.
The defending is working ok so far, though. Barcelona haven't had a clean look at Bernd Leno's goal 25 minutes in, although that's at least partially because they've been far sloppier than usual. If Leverkusen could actually do something with the ball once they've won it, though, that'd be super. Right now they can't even complete a basic pass without it going to a green shirt.
