Paris Saint-Germain got their Ligue 1 title defence underway with a 1-1 draw in Montpellier, becoming the fourth French champions in four consecutive seasons to start their campaign without winning.
Maxwell’s second-half striker cancelled out Remy Cabella’s well-taken opener, but Laurent Blanc’s side failed to get out of second gear, despite "La Paillade" finishing the game with 10 men.
Edinson Cavani, the main point of attraction at the Stade de la Mosson, made his highly anticipated debut as a second-half substitute, but could not give himself a dream start at PSG by firing the winner.
Instead, the side from the capital have to settle for a point and will need to heed some of the warning signs from the draw.
