Thierry Henry´s debut ended in disappointment as Barcelona were unable to beat 10-man Racing Santander in a goalless draw on Sunday.

Nou Camp coach Frank Rijkaard started with last season´s trusted trident of Ronaldinho, Samuel Eto´o and Leo Messi, although Henry came off the bench and almost won it late on with an effort which came back off the post.

But despite their hosts having their own debut striker - Ebi Smolarek - sent off for a cynical foul on Eric Abidal, Barca were unable to find a winner.
