Injured Barcelona stars Gianluca Zambrotta and Yaya Toure have stepped up their recovery routines ahead of the Champions League double-header against Rangers.

Italy defender Zambrotta has barely a week to show Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard he can be ready for the clash with Rangers at Ibrox.

Midfielder Toure is in the same position ahead of the first match against Walter Smith´s side on October 23, although the Nou Camp pair are both expected to be fully fit for the clash in Barcelona on November 7.
