Dembele ruled out of Valencia clash

Ousmane Dembele has been ruled out of Barcelona's La Liga clash with Valencia this weekend. 

The French international suffered an ankle injury in the 3-1 win over Leganes ten days ago, however he has been unable to train with the squad since then and no misses the visit of Marcelino's side.

He is likely to be replaced by Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho, as Barcelona look to maintain their five point lead over Atletico Madrid, at the top of the league table.

Midfielder Sergio Busquets will also miss the game, after collecting his fifth La Liga booking of the season in the Leganes game, and defender Samuel Umtiti has returned to training, but it not yet fit enough to return to the match day squad.
