In June, Neymar's teammate Gianluigi Buffon was slapped with a three-match ban from European competition after a live-on-TV tirade against referee Michael Oliver following his former club Juventus' similarly dramatic quarter-final defeat to Real Madrid last season.

Neymar watched last Wednesday's match from the stands, having returned from Brazil where he had been recovering from a second fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot.

He is now in Paris to continuing his recovery from injury following an "excellent" medical evaluation in Qatar.
