Premier League

Barcelona right-back Sergino Dest suffered an injury to the semitendinosus muscle in his right hamstring against Rayo Vallecano in the first half. 

Therefore, Sergino Dest was subbed off in the first half of the game and Lenglet was brought on to replace him. 

FC Barcelona has issued a statement on their website: “Tests carried out on the first team player Sergiño Dest have confirmed that the player has injured the semitendinosus muscle in his right hamstring. The player is unavailable for selection and his recovery will dictate his return.”

This season, Sergino Dest has provided three assists all season and has not scored a single goal in La Liga this seaso for Barcelona. Barcelona still have five games left to finish their La Liga campaign. However, Barcelona are 15 points behind League leader Real Madrid on the table. 

Dani Alves’ arrival resulted in very less game time for Sergino Dest in La Liga. Moreover, Barcelona will be hoping to finish in top four in La Liga this season.
