Qatar-owned football club Paris Saint-Germain drew 1-1 with Russian tycoon Dmitry Rybolovlev's AS Monaco at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris on Sunday, the season's first encounter between the two billionaire clubs of French football.

The clash of big spenders in the French league finished even as Paris Saint-Germain drew 1-1 at home against Monaco on Sunday and missed the chance to replace its title rival at the top of the standings.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic gave PSG an early lead with a spectacular finish and Radamel Falcao responded with a fine poacher’s effort as two of the best strikers in the world cancelled each other out in a match that started at a frenetic pace before fizzling out in the second half.

Monaco, which spent even more money than PSG in the offseason, remains two points clear of PSG, which leads third-place Saint-Etienne on goal difference.

Elsewhere, the goals flowed as Lyon beat Nantes 3-1, Nice thrashed Valenciennes 4-0 and Lorient drew 3-3 with Bordeaux.
