PSG beat Toulouse 1-0 on Sunday (AEDT), the Ligue 1 leader claiming victory as Neymar returned to action after sitting out the midweek Coupe de France win over Sochaux and scored the game's only goal.

It's the club where I grew into a footballer and it's always special to play at the Bernabéu - and particularly for me this time on the visiting side which is something I've never done before.
