Esbjerg continue to fly at the start of the Superliga season - hitting AGF Aarhus for five today.
New manager Niels Frederiksen has now overseen three wins from four games this campaign, with this one particularly convincing.
Mick van Buren opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time and, although Kasper Poulsen equalised (54), further goals followed.
Henrik Andreasen added a second (57) and then Van Buren doubled his tally before Martin Braithwaite (76) and Peter Ankersen (87) completed the rout.
Brommapojkarna and Halmstad boosted their respective fights against relegation from the Allsvenskan with victories today.
Brommapojkarna impressed in a 3-0 success which keeps opponents Djurgarden within striking distance of the bottom three.
Two goals in four first-half minutes from Panajotis Dimitriadis and Serge Ngouali put the hosts in control and Andreas Eriksson rounded off a win which lifts them a point above the relegation play-off spot and only a point behind Djurgarden.
Halmstad occupy that play-off place but at least moved out of the two automatic relegation berths with a 1-0 success away to Atvidaberg thanks to Mikael Boman's goal.
Elfsborg beat Kalmar 1-0 in the day's other game, Viktor Claesson with the goal eight minutes after half-time.
French Ligue 1
Emmanuel Riviere threatened to upstage Monaco's expensive summer imports in tonight's 2-0 victory at Bordeaux - but 60 million euro man Radamel Falcao had the last word.
A bumper crowd at the Stade Chaban Delmas came both to usher in the new Ligue 1 season and to check out the wealth of talent recruited by ambitious Monaco in the few months since their promotion in May.
Falcao was the star attraction while Joao Moutinho and James Rodriguez - captured together from Porto for 70 million euros - were in action. Jeremy Toulalan and Ricardo Carvalho also stepped out in principality colours, but it was the understated Riviere who finally opened the scoring nine minutes from time.
In the dying stages Colombian hitman Falcao, who had been bought on the strength of his formidable scoring record at Atletico Madrid and Porto, would deliver his first goal for Claudio Ranieri's men to rubber-stamp the victory.
Alexandre Lacazette scored twice as Lyon enjoyed the biggest winning scoreline of the first day of the Ligue 1 season with a 4-0 thrashing of Nice.
Lacazette opened the scoring after just 12 minutes but Remi Garde's side raced away with the match in the second half.
Clement Grenier added a second eight minutes after the break and Lacazette got his brace after 67 minutes with Yoann Gourcuff adding a stunning free-kick in injury time.
Valenciennes opened their season with an emphatic 3-0 win over 10-man Toulouse at the Stade du Hainaut.
The Nord region club impressed and surprised on their way to an 11th-placed finish last term and the early signs point to another successful season following tonight's one-sided encounter.
There appeared to be a case of mistaken identity when Uros Spajic was dismissed for a foul in the 35th minute. Maor Melikson converted the penalty but Steeve Yago had been the man under suspicion from the VA players in the build-up.
Perhaps rattled by the events of the first half, Toulouse allowed their hosts to pull away to a comfortable victory as Jose Saez and Gregory Pujol helped themselves to a goal each after the break.
A goal by Filip Djordjevic and a Julian Palmieri own goal saw Nantes claim a 2-0 victory over Bastia in their first match back in Ligue 1 as both teams finished the opening match of the season with 10 men.
Nantes' Jordan Veretout was given a second yellow card for arguing with the referee before Bastia were reduced to 10 men when Araujo Ilan was sent off for violent conduct.
Mevlut Erding scored a late winner as Rennes got a 2-1 victory against Reims.
Vincent Pajot put the home side ahead in the eighth minute but saw his early score cancelled out just before half-time by Grzegorz Krychowiak.
However, Erding ensured Rennes got their season off to a winning start when he slotted a low shot past Reims goalkeeper Kossi Agassa in the 84th minute.
Elsewhere, Divock Origi's first-half goal ensured that Rene Girard's reign as Lille manager got off to a winning start with a 1-0 victory against Lorient tonight.
Evian were unable to hold on to an early lead at the Parc des Sports as they drew their first match of the season 1-1 against Sochaux.
Fabrice Ehret put the home side ahead in the fourth minute and Evian kept the visitors at bay for 50 minutes before Roy Contout netted the equaliser.
Belgian Jupiler League
KV Oostende and OH Leuven picked up their first points of the season on Saturday as they drew 1-1.
Ronny Van Geneugden's Leuven had lost their first two games and thought they were headed for a win when Mohamed Messoudi put them ahead from the spot (38).
Oostende had reason to do well themselves, though, and got their tally for the campaign up and running thanks to a 61st-minute penalty from Yohan Brouckaert.
Waasland-Beveren and KV Mechelen played out a 0-0 draw to earn the latter their first points also, with the same going for Lierse after a 1-1 draw with Cercle Brugge.
Rachid Bourabia edged Lierse ahead (21) but subsitute Gael Etock scored eight minutes after coming on in the 68th minute to level.
The night's other game saw Charleroi recover from a goal down and beat Mons 2-1.
The home side went ahead through Arnor Angeli (26) but Charleroi responded through David Pollet (49) and half-time substitute Mohamed Daf (63).
Teenage striker Zakaria Bakkali introduced himself to the Eredivisie in style by scoring a hat-trick on his home league debut for PSV Eindhoven.
The 17-year-old Belgian, who opened his account for PSV against Zulte Waregem in a Champions League qualifier this week, stole the show as NEC Nijmegen were dispatched 5-0 at the Philips Stadion.
It took just six minutes for Bakkali to open the scoring by blasting under the crossbar from the left edge of the six-yard box and four minutes before the break he took aim from the other side and successfully picked out the far corner.
Georgino Wijnaldum added a third goal on 61 minutes and matched Bakkali on a brace with a flick under Karl-Johan Johnsson 15 minutes from the end.
The evening belonged to Bakkali, however, and he rounded off a prodigious display with a jinking run down the left wing before cutting inside to complete a memorable hat-trick.
PEC Zwolle also made it two wins from two after leaving Heracles with all the points from a 3-1 win.
Jesper Drost needed just a minute to score and Kamogelo Mokotjo (13) doubled the advantage before Maikel Van der Werff helped the hosts out with an own-goal just before the break.
The second half was understandably tense but Guyon Fernandez finally calmed Zwolle's nerves with a third goal on the stroke of full-time.
Elsewhere, Go Ahead Eagles picked up their first win of the season by downing ADO 2-1 in Deventer.
Xandro Schenk watched his 21st-minute opener being cancelled out by Mike van Duinen in the 37th minute but Marnix Kolder saved the day nine minutes from time.
Swiss Super League
Young Boys continue to sweep all before them this season, winning their fifth game from as many attempts on Saturday as they crushed Aurau 4-0.
Rene Weiler's men were totally overpowered on home soil and were never in the game from the moment Gonzalo Zarate opened the scoring in the 16th minute.
Moreno Constanzo made it two nine minutes after the break and then added a 74th-minute penalty, with substitute Renato Steffen on target inbetween times.
The night's other game ended goalless, with Grasshoppers and Sion playing out a lifeless 90 minutes.
