Dembele included in Barcelona’s Squad for the Champions League

2019 has been another year to be forgotten by Ousmane Dembele as he injured himself once more just when he began to find his feet following a lengthy layoff on the sidelines.

Dembele who felt pain in his right thigh in the 26th minutes mark in the champions league game against his former side Borussia Dortmund last year November is now fit to play again.

The 23-year-old speedster retuned to the Barcelona squad four weeks ago and after some couple of training sessions he’s now been included in the 26 man squad to travel to Lisbon on Thursday, 13 August. Barcelona will entertain Bayern in a knock out quarterfinals match in Portugal on Friday night.

Dembele who has already scored once and provided two assists against the German champions could be the secret weapon for Barcelona’s coach Quique Setien when the team comes up against the five times Champions league winners.
