UEFA Champions League'FC Barcelona v Juventus FC'

Barcelona have now confirmed that Ousmane Dembele is fit, ready and officially cleared to make his long-awaited comeback.

The Frenchman has been out since September but has been medically discharged and is now available for selection.

It’s hoped that Dembele will see some minutes in Thursday’s Copa del Rey clash with Celta Vigo.

Ernesto Valverde is expected to ease him back gently, so a start looks unlikely but hopefully he will get some minutes off the bench.
