Ousmane Dembele is out of the starting XI for Barcelona's La Liga trip to Real Sociedad.

Ousmane Dembele has once again been named among the substitutes for Barcelona's La Liga trip to Real Sociedad on Sunday night.

The Frenchman came off the bench in the 5-0 win over Celta Vigo on Thursday but appeared to be in discomfort at the end of the game.

Ernesto Valverde played down any injury concerns relating to Dembele following the Copa del Rey clash but has opted to keep the youngster on the bench at the Anoeta.

Nelson Semedo, meanwhile, was ruled out on Sunday morning with tonsillitis, Aleix Vidal taking his place in the squad.

Sergio Busquets returns from a Liga suspension, while there is a spot in midfield for Andre Gomes, but Samuel Umtiti and new signing Philippe Coutinho are still both injured.

For Sociedad, centre-back Inigo Martinez is absent, his place in the XI taken by Kevin Rodrigues.

Juanmi replaces Mikel Oyarzabal out wide, while Willian Jose will again start through the middle for the out-of-form Basques.

Real Sociedad: Rulli; Odriozola, Llorente, Navas, Rodrigues; Zurutuza, Illarramendi, Prieto; Juanmi, Willian, Canales
Subs: Ramirez, Zubeldia, Januzaj, Agirretxe, Aritz, Oyarzabal, Gorosabel

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Roberto, Pique, Vermaelen, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Gomes, Paulinho; Messi, L. Suarez
Subs: Cillesen, Vidal, Digne, Dembele, Mascherano, Iniesta, D. Suarez
