Feeling tired, lads? Kylian Mbappe and Neymar yawn their way through PSG training ahead of crunch Champions League Group C clash with Napoli
- Paris Saint-Germain face a huge Champions League game away at Napoli
- The team won on Friday night and returned to training on Monday morning
- Kylian Mbappe and Neymar looked to be feeling tired and were snapped yawning
- The group seemed in high spirits and have won all of their 12 Ligue 1 fixtures
Kylian Mbappe and Neymar appeared to be feeling the Monday morning struggle as they yawned their way through training at Paris Saint-Germain’s Ooredoo base.
The club’s players had enjoyed two days off following Friday’s victory over Lille, and they returned to training bright and early for the start of a big week.
Both Neymar and Mbappe scored in the win over Lille, and boss Thomas Tuchel will be hoping for more of the same when they face Napoli away on Tuesday night.

The players trained in their red kit in Saint-Germain-en-Laye on Monday, before they are expected to catch a flight to Italy later in the afternoon.
Dani Alves, Gianluigi Buffon and Marquinhos were among the other big names snapped, as PSG got back in the groove.
Their Ligue 1 campaign has been perfect so far, with 12 victories in their 12 matches and scoring a grand total of 41 goals.
They have already established an 11-point lead over second-placed Montpellier, while last year’s runners-up Monaco – now managed by Thierry Henry – are second bottom and adrift in the relegation zone.

PSG’s current attention will be on Tuesday night, though, and a Champions League Group C clash with Napoli.
The Parisiens are third in the standings, behind Liverpool and Napoli, after a win, a draw and a defeat in their opening three.
Liverpool are heavy favourites to beat Red Star Belgrade in their match, so the onus is firmly with PSG to beat Napoli and keep pace at the top.
