PSG's brassy quest for Barcelona whiz Neymar has been overwhelming the features as of late, however it was Brazil colleague Alves, marked on a free exchange from Juventus, that declared himself to the club's steadfast in dazzling design in Saturday's shade raiser in Morocco.

Monaco picked up ownership in PSG region and debutant Youri Tielemans' dazzling throughball was gathered by Sidibe, who gave a similarly splendid dink over Alphonse Areola.
Radamel Falcao had the chance to twofold the lead when he met Sidibe's prodding conservative cross with an intense header that cleared the crossbar.
In any case, PSG were level in shocking style in the 51st moment when Alves crushed in a 30-yard free-kick to one side of Subasic that scarcely traverse as it settled in the objective.
Rabiot at that point built before Kamil Glik to head wide from an Alves focus, however a similar blend demonstrated more productive in the 63rd moment.
Javier Pastore discharged Alves on the privilege of the case and he hung up an ideal cross for Rabiot to pound his header past Subasic.
PSG were thankful to Areola for making a low spare down on his right side to keep out Guido Carrillo's intense descending header, while Thiago Silva made a fine square from Thomas Lemar's development.
Monaco had late claims for a punishment waved away when Rabiot apparently controlled a Lemar cross with his arm, yet Emery's men withstood a late surge to at the end of the day start their season with flatware.
