Barcelona recall Dembele after four months out


France international winger Dembele returned to training with the squad on October 11 for the first time after injuring a knee playing for  France against Hungary at the European Championship in June. 

He underwent surgery on June 28 in Finland. 

Barcelona are third in their group but only a point behind Benfica in second. 

Sergi Barjuan has also been able to recall striker Ansu Fati, who missed two games, midfielder Frenkie de Jong, who injured a thigh in the Clasico on October 24, and defender Ronald Araujo for the match in Kiev on Tuesday. 

But the interim coach will be without Gerard Pique, who strained a calf in the draw with Alaves on Saturday and striker Sergio Aguero, who was diagnosed with a heart problem after the game and remains under observation.
