Messi: Barcelona struggle against defensive teams

The prolific attacker has acknowledged that teams with a negative approach usually trouble the Blaugrana, and has stressed that they miss head coach Tito Vilanova.

It makes sense. Barcelona's typical strategy is pressure against attackers, but a team that plays too defensively is going to tire them out and catch them off guard.

What's negative about a lesser team doing what it takes not to lose? if Barcelona want teams to attack them more then they can start by allowing the opposition to have the ball.
