Atletico Madrid made a confident start to its defense of the Europa League title with a comfortable 3-0 win in Israel in its first meeting with Hapoel Tel Aviv.
Even without the prolific Radamel Falcao, fresh from his hat trick in his side's 4-1 win over Chelsea in the Super Cup last month, the Spaniards had too much class for their hosts, who qualified for the competition thanks to their success in this year's Israeli State Cup.
Hapoel went into the game on the back of five straight wins, conceding just one goal in the process, but they had no answer to the all-round skill of Atletico, which has now won 14 consecutive matches in European competition since a 2-0 defeat at Udinese in last season's group stage.
Atletico, unbeaten so far in La Liga, took a 37th-minute lead through Cristian Rodriguez and Diego Costa added a second before the break. Raul Garcia notched the third in the 63rd minute.
In the other match in Group B, Czech Liga leaders Viktoria Plzen came from behind to beat Portuguese side Academica 3-1. Wilson Eduardo put Academica in front before Pavel Horvath, Michal Duris and Frantisek Rajtoral replied.
Inter Milan needed a stoppage-time equalizer as it twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at home to Rubin Kazan. The Russian side took a shock lead when Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic saved Bibras Natkho's spot-kick, only for the rebound to fall to Aleksandr Ryazantsev, who lashed it home.
Teenager Marko Livaja leveled with his first goal for Inter but Salomon Rondon looked to have given Rubin a historic win at San Siro before Yuto Nagatomo's equalizer.
In a game that featured Americans on both sides, Rosenborg won 2-1 at Rapid Vienna. Terrence Boyd started for the hosts and Mix Diskerud for the visitors. Alejandro Bedoya started and received a yellow card in Helsingborgs' 1-0 loss at Levante, and Steve Cherundolo went the distance in Hannover's 2-2 tie at Twente.
Marseille had to score twice in the final eight minutes to rescue its draw in Turkey.
The French side, which has won all five of its league games this season, seemed to be heading for a surpise defeat after goals from Fenerbahce's Caner Erkin and Alex.
However, Mathieu Valbuena pulled one back for the Ligue 1 team eight minutes from time before Andre Ayew sent the vociferous home fans into despair with the final kick of the game.
In Group A, Udinese snatched a 1-1 draw at home to in-form Russian Premier League side Anzhi Makhachkala, with Antonio Di Natale equalizing in injury time after Lacina Traora put the Russians ahead on the stroke of halftime.
Anzhi had a couple of opportunities to put the tie beyond the hosts, but both Christopher Samba and then Samuel Eto'o could not find a way past Udinese keeper Daniele Padelli, who had looked at fault for the goal.
Napoli, second in Serie A, claimed an emphatic 4-0 win over AIK in Group F with a hat trick from Eduardo Vargas and a fourth from Blerim Dzemaili in injury time.
But experienced European campaigners PSV were surprised by a 2-0 defeat to Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in Ukraine, with Matheus Nascimento and an Atiba Hutchinson own goal doing the damage.
Bordeaux matched Napoli's margin of victory with a 4-0 win over Club Brugge in Group D, the goals coming from Ludovic Sane, Yoan Gouffran, Jussie and an own goal from Bjorn Engels.
In the same group, Newcastle failed to find a way past Maritimo and had to settle for opening its Europa League account with a goalless draw at the Estadio dos Barreiros.
There was another draw in Group E, where Stuttgart and Steaua Bucharest shared a 2-2 tie in Germany, while Copenhagen edged past Molde 2-1 in Denmark thanks to a 74th-minute winner from Andreas Cornelius.
Meanwhile, last season's runner-up Athletic Bilbao was held to a 1-1 draw at home by Hapoel Kiryat Shmona.
Adrian Rochet gave the Israeli champion a surprise lead in the 14th minute but Markel Susaeta leveled five minutes from halftime.
Striker Fernando Llorente was introduced at the start of the second half to loud boos from the home fans, who are unhappy with his decision to seek a move in January.
