Bayern and Brazil showed the world how you beat Spain (and Barcelona). You press them. You suffocate them into giving up possession and then you run at them. Spain's defense is pretty terrible and I think I've been vocal about how overrated I think Casillas is. Brazil 3-0 against Spain and Bayern 4-0 and 3-0 against Barcelona. You press them, stick to them like white on rice they don't know what to do, especially since they have no center forward that they could hoof the ball up to hold up the play when under pressure. Too many teams come out and try to park the bus against Spain and Barca and while that has been successful at times, its not very effective.
