Xavi welcomes back Dembele and Dest against Benfica

Ahead of Barcelona's crucial Champions League group stage match against Benfica on Tuesday, Xavi Hernandez welcomes back Ousmane Dembele and Sergino Dest from injury.

Two defeats in their opening two group games made it an uphill struggle for the Blaugrana in Group E, but two successive wins over Dynamo Kiev leaves their fate in their own hands.

Xavi's side know that three points over Benfica at the Camp Nou will secure their place in the next round, ahead of their final group game away at Bayern Munich.

Nico Gonzalez and Sergio Busquets are also in the squad, despite picking up knocks in the 1-0 win over Espanyol on Saturday.
