The rest and warmth of the home were his best allies.
Absent from training on Saturday due to gastroenteritis, Neymar will ultimately not miss this 100th Clasico in history, placed under high tension.
Recovered from his gastric problems, the Brazilian is part of the group of 23 Parisian players who flies this Sunday noon to Marseille, where tonight, at 9 pm, the shock of the 24th day of Ligue 1 will be played out. the latest information, Neymar is well on the plane that flew from Le Bourget to Marseille, with the PSG team on board.

The good news does not come alone, the PSG will be able to count on two other of its executives.
Deprived of the trip to Lorient (3-2 defeat) and success against Nîmes (3-0), Marquinhos is back in the workforce.
Recovered from his pain, the Parisian captain applied to find his place in the heart of the defense.
Affected by the Coronavirus, Marco Verratti had also skipped the last two meetings in the league.
But after resuming collective training, the Italian was also deemed fit for service.
This is not the case for Keylor Navas, however, who will have to wait an additional season before discovering the Vélodrome.
Decreased by painful adductors, the Costa Rican goalkeeper will miss, as expected, his third game in a row.
Timothée Pembélé (Covid-19), Abdou Diallo (Covid-19), Colin Dagba (thigh), Ander Herrera (thigh) and Juan Bernat (knee) will also be absent subscribers.
