In the first season of the Copa del Rey, Barcelona have rested their three important players Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Andres Iniesta against Celta Vigo. But after recovering from the injury, Ousmane Dembele is returned to the squad for the match.

Barcelona will play against Celta Vigo in the Copa del Rey match on Thursday. After spending Christmas and winter holidays, Messi and Suarez were both returned to Barcelona on January 2. For this reason, Ernesto Valverde did not keep them in the match against Celta Vigo. On the other hand, Iniesta has been given rest ahead of next week`s La Liga match.

However, after recovering from injury, Dembele returns to the club which brings relief to the Barcelona Camp. If everything is OK, then this French star will be playing for Barcelona for the first time since September.

Gerard Deulofeu and Arda Turan have not been included in the squad. On the other hand, Brazilian star Rafinha has returned from injury after being in practice but did not make it to the squad against Celta Vigo.
