Madrid: Real Madrid hammered Legia Warsaw 5-1 to move closer to clinching a spot in the Champions League knockout stage, while compatriots Sevilla beat Dinamo Zagreb 1-0 in Croatia to post their first away win in seven years in Europe's elite competition.
 
In other action on Tuesday, Leicester City topped visiting Copenhagen 1-0 to stay perfect on their return to European football after an absence of 16 years, reports Efe.
