The Uruguay international struck a first-half brace to send PSG on their way - the second of which came under controversial circumstances.

Alexandre Lacazette halved the deficit early in the second half, but it was not enough to prevent the runaway Ligue 1 leaders from picking up part one of a prospective double this season.

Laurent Blanc's men needed just four minutes to take the lead as Cavani converted a Maxwell pass beyond goalkeeper Anthony Lopes.

There was a moment of controversy on the half-hour mark, however, as les Parisiens were awarded a penalty after Lopes appeared to foul Lucas Moura outside the box.

Nevertheless, the former Napoli forward stepped up and kept his cool from 12 yards to secure his and his team's second of the evening on 32 minutes.

Remi Garde's side emerged sharper from the interval and reminded the capital club of the pitfalls involved with carrying a two-goal lead, as Lacazette fired past Nicolas Douchez on 56 minutes.

It was not the foundations of a second-half comeback, though, as the reigning Ligue 1 champions held on to pick up their first silverware of the season.
