Neymar and Kylian Mbappe were caught on camera laughing as PSG battered Real Madrid last night.

In the opening round of Champions League fixtures, Los Blancos capitulated in Paris.

Zinedine Zidane’s men succumbed to an Angel di Maria brace before Thomas Meunier capped off a fine performance with an injury-time goal.

As Meunier stroked the ball into the bottom right corner in the dying minutes, the cameras focussed their attention on one of PSG’s private boxes.

Neymar - who was heavily targeted by Barcelona just a few weeks ago - can be seen joking and laughing with Mbappe as Di Maria celebrates his team-mate’s goal.

Both stars didn’t feature with Mbappe out through injury and Neymar suspended.

The result piles more pressure on Real boss Zinedine Zidane who spent lavishly in the summer.

"We didn't really ever get going. Here we are all in the same boat,” Zidane said.

"When we win, we all win. When we lose, we all lose.

"This defeat is hard to take, but we have another game on Sunday [against Sevilla] and need to focus on that.

"They were superior to us in everything they did, and in intensity, which annoys me the most.

"They were good and created chances, but what worries me is that we played without intensity.

"We knew they'd pressure us. But we didn't really get properly into the game at any stage.

"Intensity is the most important thing on the pitch. You can have your worst game, but if you play with intensity, put your foot in, win challenges, you can win the game - but we didn't."

The result was even more painful for Real given Di Maria’s virtuoso performance.

The 31-year-old attacker made almost 200 appearances for Real before an ill-fated move to Manchester United in 2014.

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel hailed the Argentina international for stepping up to the plate.

"[Angel] Di Maria has been showing for a year that he's capable of this kind of performance,” Tuchel said.

"His left foot is extraordinary. He has exceptional statistics with us and he's always decisive with goals and assists.

"Defensively, he was very strong and humble as well. He closed out [Dani] Carvajal and worked well with [Juan] Bernat on the left."
