As much as you tried to make sense, that post wasn't. :p

I don't think there's any team who can keep up a pressure play like Madrid did in the early goings for a whole match; and even expect them to be lucid after those debauch of energy. What's more do that against a team who keeps pass the ball for 90 minutes. It's physically over-demanding. One or two player can perhaps pull off the feat in one unique match but a whole team. Madrid's strategy can work if only they put off most of their early chances in the net. They waste too many occasions.
Against Barca, there are 2 options.
1. Score quickly 2 or more goals and defend for the rest of the match.
2. Defend for the whole match and score on counter attacks.
Don't dream about sequence where a team will come on the field. Challenge Barca on possession play, ruin Barca's possession play by pushing up and scoring goals for a whole match. It's over-demanding.
The only way, it might (and I precise 'might) be possible if Messi and Xavi are not playing.
