FC Barcelona and France National team winger Ousmane Dembele possesses a unique ability of creating danger and unsettling opponents. While the player’s decision-making has remained a bit inconsistent at times, his talent and raw prowess are rarely ever a topic of debate.

Under Xavi Hernandez in particular, he has flourished beyond any prior point at the Catalan club since his arrival. His importance and performances alike then subsequently became vital for the impressive displays that Barcelona as a result were able to produce. Yet, consequently, when Ousmane Dembele once again became a victim of his nature of being injury prone, the entirety of the team’s dynamics were impacted negatively.

While the talents of the Brazilian winger Raphinha, who has taken over the right-wing slot, are no push-over by any means, he simply can not compete with Dembele when it comes to pure firepower and the ability to singlehandedly demonize oppositions.

The Frenchman initially acquired this injury in a La Liga Santander matchup against Girona in January of 2023, and the player’s medical reports later confirmed it to be an injury to his left thigh’s rectus femoris. Originally expected to be sidelined for a month or two, the degradation of the injury and its slow recovery has resulted in it taking much longer for the player to return for La Blaugrana.

Despite that, recent news has been positive, with the player expected to join group training with the rest of the squad in the upcoming week. Now, as a recent report from SPORT suggests, the likely return of the player has been designated to be an objective when Barcelona travel away to face Rayo Vallecano.

The date of the game itself would be Wednesday, the 26th of April, 2023. Should the sensations remain consistently positive and improving, it will not be much longer before fans of the Blaugrana get to see the French winger once more in action.
