Lyon 1-1 Barcelona Highlights
Thierry Henry earned Barcelona a 1-1 draw on his return to France with a second-half equaliser against Lyon in a thrilling Champions League last-16 first leg at the Stade Gerland.
Les Bleus’ all-time leading scorer headed home in the 67th minute to give the Spanish side a precious away goal, putting them in the driving seat ahead of the second leg in a fortnight’s time at the Nou Camp.
Barca deserved a share of the spoils although they were dominated early on by Lyon, who opened the scoring in the seventh minute through midfielder Juninho’s sensational free-kick.
However, once Pep Guardiola’s side weathered the early storm, they were comfortably the better team. They will be confident of finishing the job at home, despite a poor recent run of results in the Primera Liga that has seen them pick up just one point from their last two matches.
