The ESPN FC crew expand upon Barcelona's counterattacking style of play this season and how it continues to yield results.

A strong but subtle shift in influence within the Spain squad from Barcelona to Real Madrid is evident from the players picked by national coach Julen Lopetegui for pre-World Cup friendlies against Germany and Argentina.

It was not a coincidence that Spain's glory years between 2008 and 2012 coincided with Pep Guardiola's Barcelona side dominating both La Liga and the Champions League. The possession based style of football developed by Guardiola at the Camp Nou was hugely influential at the international...
