Injury report

Unfortunately, the USMNT player will miss the start of the UEFA Champions League group stage campaign after tests were conducted by the FC Barcelona medical services. Dest has not recovered fully and the manager Ronald Koeman didn’t include the player in the final roster that will host FC Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou.

Other players that won’t be available for the start of the group stage match are Martin Braithwaite (out for four months), Ousmane Dembelé and Sergio Agüero, the last two players are expected to return in the first weeks of November.

The good news is that Jordi Alba, Gerard Piqué and Sergi Roberto will be available to face the German giants in the start of the tournament with Luuk de Jong expected to make his debut with FC Barcelona.
