Real Madrid made it two wins from two in this season's Champions League with a clinical 3-0 dismissal of Ajax at the Bernabeu to consolidate top spot in Group D.

After opening with a laboured 1-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb on matchday one, Jose Mourinho's men looked more in the mood and eased to the three points thanks to goals by Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Karim Benzema.

Real director Emilio Butragueno said: "It was an important victory for us. We obtained an extraordinary result and Cristiano's goal was the blueprint for how a counterattack should be carried out. The other two goals were also very good."
