Barcelona looked set to be held to a frustrating 0-0 draw at home to Real Valladolid on Monday before the Frenchman scored in the 90th minute.

Barcelona move up to second, one point behind leaders Atletico Madrid, thanks to a sixth La Liga win in a row.

Lenglet speaking on Dembele’s recent performances, “It’s doesn’t surprise me,”. “He couldn’t play alot of games because of injuries and now it looks like everything is calm in that respect.

“When he’s physically well he’s a very good dribbler, he’s got two feet, a lot of speed. He gives us a lot.

“I’m very happy for him because he’s worked hard for this and he deserves it.”

Speaking on the red card awarded to Real’s Oscar Plano, “The red card was decided very quickly, he said. “Ousmane took a very hard foul from behind, that’s why the ref sanctioned him that way.

“I think the red card is deserved because of the foul from behind”.
