Two Barcelona players injured ahead of Celta clash

Barcelona pair Ousmane Dembele and Sergino Dest have been ruled out with injury.

Dest has picked up a lower back problem, according to Barcelona, and will not be available for their next game against Celta Vigo.

This will also come as a blow to the United States Men's National Team. Dest, who has 15 caps for the senior side, will be hoping to recover in time for the upcoming international break.

The US take on Mexico and Jamaica in two World Cup qualifiers next week.

Dembele, meanwhile, has played just once this season — on Tuesday, when Barcelona beat Dynamo Kiev 1-0 in the Champions League. Prior to that, he last featured in June.

Like Dest, he is now unavailable for selection again.

Barcelona face Celta Vigo on Saturday looking for a positive result. They are currently ninth and still searching for a manager, with a delegation from Barcelona currently trying to appoint former midfielder Xavi as their new manager.
