From: Chelsea vs Barcelona


Recommended Posts


Thierry Henry will miss Barcelona's UEFA Champions League semi-final encounter with Chelsea on Wednesday after being told that he will be out of action for at least two weeks.

The French forward produced a stunning performance against Real Madrid at the weekend and was relishing the prospect of facing the Blues in the second leg at Stamford Bridge.

But the knock to his knee that he picked up in the second half in the Bernabeu has turned out to be more serious than first thought and he will now miss some key matches for the Blaugrana.

Henry will not only have to sit out the game against Chelsea, but he will also miss the league encounter with Villarreal at the weekend, when Baraa could be crowned as champions, as well as the Copa del Rey final next week.

Further tests will be made on his knee injury as the week progresses in a bid to ease him back into action as quickly as possible, but the news is not what coach Pep Guardiola wanted in the build-up to the Chelsea game.

Barcelona will now look to move Andres Iniesta out to play on the left, where he has done so effectively throughout his career, and introduce Seydou Keita or Sergi Busquets into midfield.

Henry has become a firm favourite under Guardiola after struggling to adapt and cope with a back injury during his first season in Barcelona after joining from Arsenal in 2007.

This term he has netted 19 league goals and is a member of the most feared attacking trident in European football, which also includes Lionel Messi and Samuel Eto'o.
