Henry and Alves return

David Puig

The return of Henry and Alves was one of the positive notes to be taken from the game in Kazan - Henry came on for Keita on 82 minutes, whilst the Brazilian played the full 90 minutes.

Thierry Henry has been out of action since he picked up his injury in the France-Austria game on 14th October and his last game for Barca was against Malaga in the team's 0-2 win. In the 10 minutes or so he was on the pitch against Kazan, he came close to scoring with one effort that could have given Barca the win,

Two chances

Henry had a couple of chances – on 88 minutes he couldn't quite connect with a far post cross from Alves and then a minute later, Messi put him through for a much clearer opportunity that he put wide.
