Koeman provides Dest update ahead of Barcelona vs Osasuna

Barcelona vs Osasuna

Barcelona are set to return to league action on Sunday afternoon.

The Catalonians have had something of a nightmare start to 2020/21.

Granted, they have secured a spot in this season’s Champions League last 16.

But their league form has been pretty awful so far this term, with Ronald Koeman’s side starting the weekend down in 13th place after losing three and drawing two of their eight La Liga ties this season.

On paper, though, Barca should be able to pick up a fairly easy victory on Sunday.

Osasuna started the weekend down in 14th place and are one of the lowest scorers in the Spanish top-flight this campaign.

Koeman on Dest

Ahead of the tie, Ronald Koeman would hold his pre-match press conference on Saturday.

During the presser, the Dutchman provided an update on Sergino Dest.

The youngster has been one of the few bright sparks at the Camp Nou this season.

However, the full-back has picked up a small issue after Barca’s win over Dynamo Kiev in midweek and as confirmed by Koeman, he could miss Sunday’s game with Osasuna:

“It isn’t serious because he did the training session today. But he came really tired back after the match against Kiev, yet some problems in his leg.

“But it’s not really serious, but it’s always that we need to make a decision an we are not the people who will take a lot of risk with him because we know in his position at the moment we have more players injured. If it’s okay he will start, if it’s if we have doubts about that then he will not start.”
