Barça through to Champions League quarter final

March 12, 2009

It was goals galore last night as FC Barcelona dominated Olympique Lyon to a 5-2 victory at the Nou Camp. After an indifferent result in the first leg it was all or nothing for Barça – and they chose all.Thierry Henry scored the first goal in the 24th minute off a ball from from Rafa Márquez and quickly followed up with his second just three minutes later. Ten minutes later Messi moved into the penalty area and shot the ball past the Lyon keeper and Samuel Eto’o then made it 4-0 with a goal in minute 42, but to show that Barça couldn’t have it all their own way, Makoun scored for Lyon just one minute before the half time whistle.

Coming on after the break Lyon quickly stepped into the breach with a goal  from Juninho in the 47th minute, but it took until the very last moment for Keita to score the final goal of the night for a 5-2 victory for Barcelona and a place in the quarter finals.

1-0 Henry (min 24)
2-0 Henry (min 27)
3-0 Messi (min 37)
4-0 Eto’o (min 42)
4-1 Makoun (min 44)
4-2 Juninho (min 47)
5-2 Keita (min 90)
