Real Madrid reversed a mediocre first half performance to secure a comfortable 3-0 win over 10-man Marseille at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Manuel Pellegrini's star-studded side were slow to start and the French visitors more than held their own in the first half.
The second half, however, was a different story, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring twice and Kaka's penalty adding the icing on the cake.
Marseille were forced to play out the final half and hour with just ten men after Souleymane Diawara was harshly punished with a second yellow card for bringing down Ronaldo and handing Real Madrid a penalty.
Real are now three points clear in Group C with a 100 per cent record following AC Milan's stunning home defeat to FC Zurich at the San Siro.
Eslewhere in the Europa League, Villarreal secured an important 1-0 home win against Levski Sofia, but Valencia could only manage a 1-1 draw away at Lille.
