Fantastic Henry leads Arsenal victory over Real Madrid

Share |

Arsenal, thanks to an archetypal solo effort from Thierry Henry, sealed a 1-0 victory over Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabeu - but Liverpool can not do the same as they succumbed to a late header from Benfica's Luisao.

Henry inspired Arsenal all evening and the just goal just two minutes into the second half was a stunning individual effort.

It's important to notice that the Gunners skipper picked up the ball just over the halfway line, he then shrugged off Ronaldo, Alvaro Mejia and Guti before side stepping Sergio Ramos and firing left footed low past Iker Casillas.

In fact, the victory was no more than Arsenal warranted after a terrific display in the Spanish capital as Real were far from their best.

England's Jonathan Woodgate limped off the pitch just over ten minutes in with a recurrence of a hamstring problem - and Real struggled throughout following his withdrawal.

In fact, Arsenal will now be firm favourites to book a place in the next round when they meet next month.
