How Barcelona is misusing Lionel Messi

Barcelona are still the best team in the world, according to former manager Pep Guardiola.

It may sound like heresy, but some of the issues troubling Barcelona at present center on one of the few players who are actually playing well. Lionel Messi has bailed out the Spanish champions more times this season than Luis Enrique will want to admit, curling home perfect free-kicks, converting cool penalties, controlling certain games on his own. Without him, the title race would be over. And yet the role the Argentine occupies has rarely been as inefficient as it is now.

"This is not Barca." 

That was the headline chosen by Catalan newspaper Diario Sport after Barcelona were humiliated by Paris Saint-Germain 4-0 in the first leg of their round-of-16 Champions League tie last week. And despite Sunday's win against Leganes -- which was only sealed via a Lionel Messi penalty in the 90th minute -- it's a front cover which would have served on Monday morning, too. 

It's an opinion echoed across the Barca-sphere at the moment, from season-ticket holders...

Lionel Messi anger led him not to celebrate Barcelona winner - Bauza

The FC crew break down Barcelona's dismal showing against Leganes, and discuss their fans booing the team and Luis Enrique.

Argentina coach Edgardo Bauza has said he believes Lionel Messi did not celebrate his late winner against Leganes because he was angry with the fallout from Barcelona's Champions League thrashing by Paris Saint-Germain.

Barca coach Luis Enrique took the brunt of the criticism following the 4-0 defeat last Tuesday, but Messi was one of a number of players criticised for his performance.

Lionel Messi rescues tired Barcelona with both goals in win vs. Leganes

The FC crew break down Barcelona's dismal showing against Leganes, and discuss their fans booing the team and Luis Enrique.

Lionel Messi's 90th-minute penalty kick kept Barcelona's La Liga title hopes alive as they beat Leganes 2-1 at the Camp Nou on Sunday. Messi had given manager Luis Enrique's side an early lead, but Unai Lopez's second-half strike looked to have secured a point for the visitors. With the clock ticking down, Neymar earned a spot kick and Messi fired home from 12 yards.

Barca are still one point behind league leaders Real Madrid and have played a game more, but it was almost so much worse.
