Neymar was in the stands as PSG won 4-0, thanks to goals from Julian Draxler, Edinson Cavani (penalty), Angel Di Maria and Moussa Diaby.

They have scored at least three goals in all of their five league games this season, netting 17 in total.

After last night's victory, Tuchel revealed: "Neymar and I spoke on Thursday". "I told him that he was not going to play and that he could not train".

However, there is little doubt that PSG will face a far tougher examination at Anfield in their opening Champions League group outing than they did here against Saint-Etienne. "Together, we decided that he would not play".

After returning from global duty with Brazil earlier this week, Neymar watched the victory over Saint Etienne in the stands with team-mate Kylian Mbappe who was suspended for the match.

There was also a debut for Spanish left-back Juan Bernat following his recent move from Bayern Munich, and while the visitors started well enough, PSG never looked back after taking the lead midway through the first half. He found the net in the 22nd minute, controlling Marco Verratti's lofted pass with his head before deftly nodding the ball over onrushing goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier.

'They are a team who play very well at home.

Earlier on Friday, Nice shook off the absence of Mario Balotelli as they came from behind to beat Rennes 2-1 on the Cote d'Azur.

Earlier, Nice came from an own goal down to beat Rennes 2-1, with Pierre Lees Melou grabbing the victor in the 89th minute after Allan Saint-Maximin had levelled to spare the blushes of Malang Sarr who put through his own net just before the hour.

"It was a good rehearsal, good for the confidence ahead of Tuesday's match in Anfield against Liverpool".
