Sergiño Dest was "touched" for days and Barça confirmed his injury this week. The full back still feels muscular discomfort and everything indicates that he will not recover in time to play in Elche
Sergiño Dest Is having a first positive season in the FC Barcelona. The side arrived pertinent of the Ajax to substitute to Nélson Semedo and turn into the owner of this right-handed side. It began well, playing so much in right as in left by the injury of Jordi Alba, but nor went until the 'KO' of Sergi Roberto when it attained to settle of the all in the eleven initial.
From the injury of the of Reus, the North American has been indisputable in the right except when it has had physical problems. Precisely in these moments, the one of Almere is 'touched' and has was low for the meeting of Glass of the King of this past Friday. The carrilero has annoyances in his right thigh and seems that it will not return until having surpassed completely this ailment.
There were hopes that Dest could return to the team this Sunday to confront to the Elche, but in the newspaper 'ACE' ensure that in the Barça are pessimistic regarding his turn. The defence follows 'touched' and would have almost impossible to play in the Martínez Valero this weekend. Everything aims that it needs more time to be to 100% and it will be necessary to expect at least until next week to see his turn.
In front of the drop of Sergiño and taking into account that Sergi Roberto follows apurando his recovery, Óscar Mingueza will repeat in the right side. The canterano already was to title in this side against the Cornellà and also played in this position in the Supercopa of Spain, so much in front of the Real Sociedad, being headline by the annoyances of the American, as in front of the Athletic, going out of the bench in the rest by the injury of the ex 'ajacied'.
It will be necessary to see when can return Dest, since Mingueza, in spite of win them that it shows to have always, does not give a big level in the side. The defender is a central more than aprovechable, but in the band does not finish to feel comfortable and does not take advantage of his virtues. In attack does not generate hardly danger and in defence has too many automatisms of central as to stand out.
The turn of Sergi Roberto, increasingly near
Luckily, whatever happens with the Dutch of North American passport, Roberto is increasingly near to return to the team. The Catalan could go in even in the list of summoned to play the eighth of Glass against the Ray Vallecano, although it could be something precipitated. Koeman, if it sees that it has risk, will expect for the duel in front of the Athletic Club of 31 January in the Camp Nou.
