Henry's double sends Barcelona into quarters
BARCELONA: A quickfire Thierry Henry double and goals from Lionel Messi, Samuel Eto'o and Seydou Keita gave Barcelona a 5-2 win over Olympique Lyon on Wednesday to fire them into the last eight of the Champions League.

Barca, who won 6-3 on aggregate, made the breakthrough in the 25th minute when Rafael Marquez sent Henry clear down the middle. The France international, scorer of their goal in the 1-1 draw in the first leg, finished with ease past Hugo Lloris.

Xavi released Henry on the left of the penalty area for his second two minutes later and Messi scored a trademark goal when he cut in from the right, exchanged close passes with Eto'o and slotted calmly past Lloris.

Eto'o powered the ball into the top right corner to make it four on 43 minutes before Jean Makoun and Juninho scored either side of the break to give the French champions a glimmer of hope and substitute Keita added a sixth for Barca in stoppage time.
