Neymar was particularly annoyed at having to watch on as his fellow attacker stepped up for a penalty, leading to rumours in the following days that the pair had to be separated in the dressing room at full-time.

Speaking after the 3-0 win over Bayern Munich on Wednesday night, however, the former Barcelona ace stressed that these claims have simply been made up.

"They have no clue. They invent a lot of stories," he told reporters. "They talk too much. They speak about things that they have no clue about. They try to infiltrate the dressing room and they end up making claims about things that don't exist."

Former Barcelona stars Neymar and Dani Alves both scored in the victory against Bavarian with Cavani also on target at the Parc des Princes.
