Thierry Henry London, May 5 (ANI): Johan Cruyff predicts that French and Barcelona striker Thierry Henry will see off Chelsea at Stamford Bridge tomorrow.

Henry hit two goals in Saturday’s 6-2 Bernabeu demolition of Real Madrid to take his season’s total to 26.

Henry is expected to overcome a knee injury as Barca bid to improve on the 0-0 first leg draw.

Cruyff declared: “Barca have rediscovered the Henry of Arsenal and this is key.

“Technically he has always been very good. But mentally he is better now and we are seeing the best of him, the same as he was with Arsenal. With Henry in this form Barcelona could aspire to anything,” The Sun quoted Cruyff, as saying.
