France international Ousmane Dembele is set to play for Barcelona against Celta Vigo in Thursday’s Copa del Rey after long injury lay off, the club confirmed.
Dembele, 20, made only three appearances for the Catalan giants before rupturing his hamstring against Getafe on Sept. 16.
The former Borussia Dortmund player who had a surgery in Finland, returned to training in December and received his medical discharge on Tuesday.
