Barcelona right-back Sergino Dest has been ruled out of Wednesday’s Copa del Rey clash against Rayo Vallecano.

The defender was given the green light and included in the squad list for Sunday’s win at Elche but did not feature in the game and will not now make the trip to Rayo.

Barcelona confirmed that Dest is still having issues with a thigh injury.

The game also comes too soon for Sergi Roberto who has been back in training but is not included in the travelling squad.

Oscar Mingueza therefore looks likely to continue in the right-back slot against the Segunda Division side.
