Barcelona’s injury problems look to be deepening with a report that Sergino Dest may miss Sunday’s La Liga clash with Osasuna.

According to Catalunya Radio, the right-back has some muscular discomfort that may force him out of the match at the Camp Nou.

If the 20-year-old is sidelined then Ronald Koeman is planning on using Oscar Mingueza on the right side of the defence as he’s aready without Sergi Roberto due to injury.

Dest’s injury could also then mean a reshuffle in midfield too. Frenkie de Jong may be needed in central defence, leaving a spot up for grabs in midfield alongside Miralem Pjanic.

Sergio Busquets is expected to be passed fit in time for the match after knee trouble, although Carles Alena will be hoping he gets his retain his place in the starting XI.

Barca are due to train again in the morning for a final time before the match which should offer an indication of whether Dest will be fit for the match or not.
