While the first team squad enjoy a day off after playing Rangers in the Champions League, there was still plenty of activity at Camp Nou as the injured players reported for duty to continue their recovery programmes.

Rafa Márquez, Gianluca Zambrotta and Touré Yaya took to the pitch in front of La Masia, just like they did yesterday, as they all battle back from injuries that have kept them out of action in recent weeks.

Márquez is first out

The Mexican defender has been out of action since tearing as muscle in his leg during the Champions League game against VfB Stuttgart at the start of October and was told that he would be out of action for four weeks.

Zambrotta and Touré

Touré also worked alone, despite being on the same recovery programme as the Italian, because he endured his muscle injury three days later.

Frank Rijkaard declared that Wednesday would be a holiday for his players as they prepare to play five games before the next break for international matches. With four league games and a Champions League game to come, the team were told not to report back to training until 18:00 on Thursday.
