Sergino Dest made his first Barcelona appearance in the UEFA Champions League this week and will now look to help his team to a rivalry win this weekend.
Ronald Koeman’s side hosts Real Madrid in the first El Clasico of the La Liga season with Barcelona coming in off a lopsided European victory. Dest started in Barca’s 5-1 group stage win over Ferencvaros on Tuesday, playing 90 minutes at left back. The 19-year-old has totaled 195 minutes for the Catalan club so far since his move from Ajax, filling in at left back for the injured Jordi Alba. After losing 1-0 to Getafe on Matchday 2 of the La Liga season, Barcelona will be aiming for a major bounce back in what should be a thrilling title race once again.
Elsewhere, Josh Sargent and Werder Bremen face Hoffenheim on Sunday in Bundesliga play while Chris Richards could return for Bayern Munich against Eintracht Frankfurt. Christian Pulisic and Chelsea have a tough EPL showdown at Manchester United on Saturday with the London club looking to bounce back from two draws in the span of six days. Jesse Marsch’s Red Bull Salzburg squad will go up against Erik Palmer-Brown and Austria Wien.
