Ousmane Dembele is back in the Barcelona squad for Sunday’s La Liga match away to Athletic Bilbao while Lionel Messi was also included in the matchday group by the Catalan club.

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde reiterated on Saturday Messi would play at San Mames only if he is fit, after the Argentinian started on the bench against Real Madrid on Wednesday due to pain in his thigh.

Dembele was not involved in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final but is in contention to face Bilbao, having recovered from an ankle injury. The 21-year-old has scored six goals in his last nine matches but has not played since January 20.
