The French forward came off the bench in the 4-0 win over Real Betis
Ousmane Dembélé has returned to play for FC Barcelona three months later after overcoming the muscle injury he suffered against Girona in a 1-0 win in LaLiga on Jan. 28. In total, he had missed his team's last 17 official matches.
The French forward was medically cleared the day before the Barça-Betis game on Saturday, which was an easy one for the Blaugrana and allowed Xavi Hernandez to give the Mosquito some playing time. Dembélé came on in the 73rd minute to replace Raphinha.
Dembélé will be ready to play again in the final stretch of the championship, to decide the league title with his teammates from the pitch. In addition, he will reactivate his personal duel with Raphinha to win a place in the starting line-up in the Barcelona attack.
Barça beat Betis 4-0 with goals from Andreas Christensen, Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha and a Guido Rodriguez own goal.
