Henry: Barca can match United

Published Add your comment

Barcelona striker Thierry Henry believes Manchester United cannot be considered favourites when the two teams go head to head in the Champions League semi-finals later this month.

Barca´s 1-0 home win over Schalke secured their meeting and Henry conceded that United are Europe´s form team, saying: "This is a game to get excited about, but we will have to play well because we will be up against a team who are playing incredibly."

However, he added after the Catalans´ 2-0 aggregate success: "People will say they are favourites, but nobody can really know."
