Lionel Messi's 90th-minute winner against promoted Leganes did little to ease tensions at Barcelona, which finds itself in the unusual position of having to make peace with its fans.It's a relatively new situation for Barcelona, which has been dominant in world soccer for the last decade.Barcelona fans are still processing the humiliating 4-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last week, which all but ended the team's hopes for a European title. Defeat against Atletico could leave the club in a difficult position to win the Spanish league as well. Barcelona is one point behind leader Real Madrid after 23 rounds, but Real has two games in hand.Luis Enrique, who has been loudly criticized since the demoralizing loss to PSG, also was targeted.Barcelona's return last-16 match against PSG is on March 8 at Camp Nou.
