Dembele is back, Setien optimistic that his side can match Bayern

Barcelona have Ousmane Dembele fit again for their Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich, with coach Quique Setien confident his side can hold their own.

“It is a satisfaction for all of us that Dembele is in the squad and I think he will be in a position to participate for a few minutes if we consider it appropriate.

“We are excited that he can play and get it right.”

Winger Dembele has been out since November after rupturing his thigh muscle but is in line for a long-awaited return in Lisbon on Friday.

Setien told a pre-match news conference: “We have arrived in good spirits. This is the game we are waiting for. We have prepared well.

Bayern looks fantastic at competing all the way, having broken into a domestic double in Germany and swept aside Chelsea in their previous European tie.

At the other side, Barca surrendered their LaLiga title to rivals Real Madrid and has failed in recent months to persuade.
