Sergio Busquets has admitted Barcelona are not playing scintillating football despite their strong start to the campaign.
The Blaugrana have only dropped two points in 11 La Liga outings and are on the verge of qualifying for the Champions League knockout phase in first place.
However, there have been concerns raised that the team is not playing as strongly as results may suggest.
“We are enjoying a really good spell of form,” Busquets explained on Radio Marca.
“We realise our football is not brilliant or at our best but we are solid and compact. We have made it difficult to score against us and we are very happy.
“We do acknowledge that we have not played brilliantly; we changed our system when an important player left (Neymar to PSG) and that mean in some areas you are stronger, in others not.
“Our goal is to be compact and to build a winning team and at the moment we are.”
