Pique and Dest declared ‘fully fit’ for Barcelona clash v Bayern Munich
Gerard Pique and Sergino Dest have given Barcelona’s defence a boost ahead of their Champions League opener with Bayern Munich. The pair were both injury doubts for the heralded Group E-clash. Dest, 20, sprained his ankle on international duty with the United States, while Pique, 34, has been struggling with a calf problem. “Gerard Pique and Sergino Dest have been declared fully fit,” Barca tweeted in the build-up to Tuesday’s fixture. Martin Braithwaite, Ousmane Dembele, Sergio Aguero and Ansu Fati are all, however, still on the sidelines.
