Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored twice, while Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah got the other goals.

The Spanish giants are now three points ahead of Inter Milan who beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the other Group F encounter.

Chelsea grabbed a late 1-0 victory at Ajax. Michy Batshuayi struck the winner with just four minutes remaining in Amsterdam.

Napoli defeated Salzburg 3-2 in a game that saw Dries Mertens go past Diego Maradona’s 115-goals tally for the Italian club.

In other games, Benfica edged Lyon 2-1, Valencia drew 1-1 with Lille, and Leipzig defeated Zenit 2-1.
