The win marked the largest European margin of victory away since the Blancos defeated Luxembourg side Progres Niedercorn 7-0 in September 1978.

The two-time defending Champions League winners will have to settle for second place in their group, however, with Tottenham's 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund securing top spot in Group H.
