Real took an easy lead in the 6th minute as the 24-year-old Khedira headed home at the penalty spot. It hadn't taken long for Real made their second as another German Midfielder Ozil performed a tricky shot.

Then the visiting team totally dominated the left hour. The game for them was rather dancing than playing. Di Maria, who replaced Cristiano Ronaldo in the second half, showed some flashy stuffs until he bicycled into the box following a Marseilles revolve and made it home.
