Lyon 1-1 Barcelona

Barcelona striker Thierry Henry
Barca's Thierry Henry celebrates his leveller at the Stade Gerland

Thierry Henry rescued Barcelona with a second-half goal in their Champions League last 16 first leg tie in Lyon.

The hosts took the lead thanks to an amazing free-kick, Juninho lofting an extraordinary effort over keeper Victor Valdes' head from way out on the left.

Samuel Eto'o toe-poked a shot against the upright as Barca hit back, before Lyon's Karim Benzema struck the post.

Barca improved after the break and Henry got their leveller, stooping to head in a corner at the far post.
