The Paris Saint-Germain squad warmed up on the outskirts of the French capital on Tuesday ahead of their UEFA Champions League opener against Real Madrid.

President Nasser Al-Khelaifi and Sporting Director Leonardo watched over the session which was run by manager Thomas Tuchel.

Brazil star Neymar Jr. joined his teammates despite a European ban for insulting referees after his side were eliminated by Manchester United last season.

The ban was reduced earlier on Tuesday from three games to two by the Court of Arbitration for Sport but the wantaway forward will still miss crucial clashes against Real Madrid and Galatasaray.

Neymar has endured a torrid summer after constant speculation around his future led to nothing while his attitude has been rounded on by PSG fans who booed him upon his return to Parc des Princes.

PSG take on Real Madrid in their opening fixtures of Group A in Paris at 21:00 CET (19:00 GMT) on Wednesday.
