Paris-Saint Germain picked up their first silverware of the season on Saturday after fighting back from a goal down to defeat Ligue 1 champions Monaco 2-1 in the Moroccan city of Tangiers.

PSG's Dani Alves scored on his competitive debut for Paris club, then set up Adrien Rabiot to head home the winner for the Coupe de France winners

Alves opener for the club cancelled out Djibril Sidibe's goal, which had initially put Monaco ahead.

The Champions Trophy is traditionally the French season's curtain raiser, pitting the winners of the last French Cup against the holders of the Ligue 1 title.

This year the build-up to the match was dominated by talk of PSG's possible €222 million move for Barcelona's star striker Neymar.

Meanwhile, Monaco are fighting off a rumoured €180 million offer by another Spanish club, Real Madrid, for French prodigy Kylian Mbappe.

It was a capacity crowd in Tangiers, with 45,000 football fans packed into the stadium.
