FC Barcelona – La Liga Due to muscle discomfort
Ronald Koeman has revealed that Sergino Dest will not be at his disposal for Barcelona’s Copa del Rey game against Cornella on Thursday.
The 20-year-old right-back is also doubtful for the Catalans’ LaLiga Santander duel against Elche on Sunday at the Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero.
Dest suffers a muscle discomfort in his right thigh and Koeman is expected to play centre-back Oscar Mingueza at right-back against Cornella, as Sergi Roberto is also sidelined due to injury.
The Dutch coach called up five academy players, Ilaix Moriba, Mingueza, Konrad de la Fuente, Alex Collado and Arnau Tenas, for Wednesday’s training session and he is expected to include them in the squad list for the Copa del Rey duel.
