Thierry Henry says Jerome Boateng’s slip against Lionel Messi was actually funny, but the Argentine would have floored any defender.
The former FC Barcelona and Arsenal star has shown sympathy for Boateng, insisting there was not much the German World Cup winner could have done.
"I don't care who you are, what type of defender you are," Henry said on Sky Sports.
"You don't want to let him go on his left foot, so he goes back on his right and does that. What can you do? You just have to hope (Manuel) Neuer can save you again.
"The way he (Boateng) falls is actually funny, but what can you do? You can just go on the floor and watch him celebrate. It's amazing."
Henry also insisted that Messi’s brilliance made the difference on the night, but also questioned Pep Guardiola’s first-half tactics.
"What is crazy is Messi does it all in one step of movement. If I tried to do that, I would fall over. You have to understand how difficult it is to do this,” he added.
"He wanted to win that game and he did it again. You just give him the ball around the box and the rest is history.
“Maybe Bayern Munich didn't approach the game in the right way in the first-half, but in the second-half there wasn't much between the two teams. Then Lionel Messi decided to win that game.”
