Dani Alves will make football history this season if he can claim the Coupe de France with Paris Saint-Germain.

The Brazilian watched most of the game from the sidelines as his team-mates reached the final with victory over SM Caen at the Stade Michel d'Ornano on Wednesday evening.

After overcoming their Normandy hosts, if they now beat third-tier outfit Les Herbiers in the final at the Stade de France on 8 May, Alves will have won an incredible 38 trophies in his career, the most by any player in the history of the game.

The former Sevilla, Barcelona and Juventus right-back claimed piece of silverware number 37 when PSG clinched the Ligue 1 title with Sunday's 7-1 thumping of AS Monaco.

That pulled him level with PSG's sporting coordinator and former player, Maxwell, who retired at the end of last season.
