Expect Tuesday's Champions League semi-final second leg at Old Trafford between Manchester United and Barcelona to be a far more open affair than last week's goalless draw at Camp Nou, says Barca striker Thierry Henry.

Although last week's clash between two of Europe's most attractive footballing sides - the attack-minded Barcelona and Manchester United - was an anti-climax, failing to justify the eager pre-match anticipation - Thierry Henry expects a different sort of match at Old Trafford.

United were un typically ultra-defensive in Barcelona a week ago and succeeded in keeping a clean-sheet.

But their limited attacking ambitions meant Barca were equal successful in not conceding an away goal.

But former Arsenal star Henry, asked if fans will see a more open game today as both sides attack, creating more space to play in, said: "That's true.

We might have more space but they will also create more danger."
