Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembele, who has been sidelined since September, has been cleared to make his comeback in Thursday’s Copa del Rey clash against Celta Vigo.
The French international has not played since tearing his hamstring at Getafe on September sixteenth, just three games into his Barca career following a one hundred and five-million-euro move from Borussia Dortmund that could rise to as much as one hundred and forty-five million euros.
Holders Barcelona will face Celta Vigo, coached by former Barca goalkeeper and assistant manager Juan Carlos Unzue, in the last 16 of the Copa del Rey, the Spanish Cup.
