The former midfielder will have Sergino Desta and Ousmane Dembele at his disposal. The club said they both had healed the injuries they had been struggling with in recent weeks.

This season, Dembele has only appeared in one game. The Frenchman returned from an injury, played 25 minutes against Dynamo Kiev, then caught another injury. In the current competition, Dest made thirteen appearances, which he decorated with three assists.
