PSG's fifth consecutive win French super Cup

Ex-Barcelona star Dani Alves hits out at “lies” in Neymar to PSG saga

The Brazilian veteran was making his competitive debut for Paris Saint-Germain in the Trophée des Champions - the French equivalent of England's Community Shield - and could not have played any better.

This goal, which contributed to a 2-1 win for the Parisians, will now surely have PSG fans licking their lips ahead of the new season.

PSG once again won both French Cups, but in the championship was only the second.

PSG's audacious pursuit of Barcelona superstar Neymar has been dominating the headlines in recent weeks, but it was Brazil team-mate Alves, signed on a free transfer from Juventus, that announced himself to the club's faithful in stunning fashion in Saturday's curtain raiser in Morocco.

The result puts into focus the challenge Monaco, who saw late penalty claims for handball against Rabiot dismissed, face in defending their shock Ligue 1 title victory this season.

Monaco players celebrate the opening goal.

Kylian Mbappe, heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid, may still be at Monaco but the departures of Bernardo Silva, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Benjamin Mendy and Valere Germain have weakened the side.

Monaco will begin their Ligue 1 title defence at home against Toulouse on Friday as the season resumes. In the 63rd minute, he served up a sublime cross that Adrien Rabiot got a clean head to for Paris' second, and ultimate match victor.

Last season, rivals met 4 times, three of these matches ended effectively 3: 1, 1: 4, 0: 5.
