Portuguese midfielder Xeka scored the only goal as French champion Lille beat Cup winner Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in the Champions Trophy on Sunday.
This victory gives Lille coach Jocelyn Gourvennec a trophy for his first match since replacing Christophe Galtier.
Galtier guided Lille through one of the biggest upheavals in French football, but then left to join Nice, with Gourvennec taking over from Lille in the offseason and helping the northern club win the trophy for the first time.
Xeka settled a close game in Tel Aviv with a nice strike from the edge of the penalty area that beat goalkeeper Keylor Navas and found the top corner just before half-time.
Lille beat and drew against PSG last season without conceding a goal, and kept another clean sheet this time around despite the sale of substitute goalkeeper Mike Maignan to AC Milan.
The French championship starts on Friday.
PSG visit the promoted Troyes on Saturday and Lille is in Metz on Sunday.
