Thierry Henry: All European clubs fear Real Madrid and Real Madrid fear Barcelona


Former Barcelona striker Thierry Henry has made comparisons about current realities at Real Madrid and Blaugrana.

Henry made 80 appearances for Barcelona and scored 35 goals for the team between 2007 and 2010, so he understands the difference between the two clubs.

“All European clubs are afraid of Real Madrid … and Madrid are afraid of Barcelona,” he told CBS Sports.

Henry had the courage to predict the Champions League final, which will see Liverpool face Real Madrid in Paris on May 28.

“Personally, I think Liverpool will win the Champions League. They are stronger than Real Madrid,” said Henry.

“To make the Champions League final even bigger, two Ballon d’Or favorites are [Sadio] Mane and [Karim] Benzema.”

For the Ballon d’Or winner, Henry hopes his teammate Karim Benzema will claim the trophy, scoring 43 goals and giving away 14 assistants in all competitions.

“I still think Benzema is ahead, but if Mane wins with Liverpool and they make quadruples, he is a strong opponent and it could be good in Africa. But my money is in Benzema,” he said.
