Ousmane Dembele could be available for selection at FC Barcelona when the Blaugranas play Napoli in the second leg of their round of 16 match in the Champions League. The French winger has entered the final stage of his recovery as he has returned to group training on Wednesday.
While nobody at the club wants to force Dembele to play mainly because he has been sidelined with a muscle injury since November 2019. It is possible and it seems likely that Dembele will sit out the match against Napoli to become fitter for the rest of the Champions League stages.
It is believed that Barcelona want to make sure he is fully fit to play for them in the quarter finals. But before that can happen, Barcelona has to eliminate Napoli first. This could mean Dembele will sit on the bench this weekend and he could be given some minutes if the score allows it. After the first leg Barcelona and Napoli are tied at 1-1.
