Lyon defeated Olympiakos, 2-1, yesterday, leaving the four-time defending French champions as one of three teams with perfect records in the European Champions League.
Inter Milan's perfect record was blemished with a 2-0 loss at 2004 champion FC Porto. Two other teams won big: Chelsea routed Real Betis, 4-0, and nine-time champion Real Madrid overwhelmed Rosenborg, 4-1.
Sidney Govou scored the winning goal for Lyon, giving the French team three wins in three Champions League games, and nine points atop Group F. Olympiakos has lost its first three.
Bayern Munich and Arsenal, the other clubs with perfect records in Europe's top club tournament, picked up victories Tuesday.
In the other Group F game, Madrid got goals from Jonathan Woodgate, Raul Gonzalez, Ivan Helguera and David Beckham. Real Madrid improved to six points, with Rosenborg at three.
Also yesterday, it was: Liverpool 1, Anderlecht 0 in Group G; AC Milan 0, PSV Eindhoven 0, and Fenerbahce 3, Schalke 3 in Group E; and Rangers 0, Artmedia Bratislava 0 in Group H.
Chelsea picked up the night's most lopsided victory and stayed atop Group G. The Blues have seven points and lead English rival Liverpool on goal difference.
Didier Drogba and Ricardo Carvalho scored in the first half for Chelsea, and Joe Cole and Hernan Crespo added two more in the second. Betis has only three points in three games.
"We are not yet there, but we are in a good position," Chelsea Manager Jose Mourinho said. "I think everybody understands that Chelsea is a very strong team and we are one of many, many, many candidates to win this competition. I would say seven, eight, nine, 10.
"Everybody knows it's not easy to beat Chelsea."
The victory was Chelsea's 11th in 12 games this season. The only blemish is a 0-0 draw against Liverpool in its previous Champions League game. The Blues have scored 13 goals in their last three games.
Djibril Cisse's goal in the 20th minute gave Liverpool its victory over Anderlecht, which has lost 10 straight Champions League games.
