Midfielder Luka Modric opened the scoring and set the first record for Madrid, who have scored in an unprecedented 31 consecutive Champions League fixtures, when he curled home a beauty from 20 metres after 25 minutes.
Ronaldo scored Madrid's second, and his group stage record ninth of the campaign, three minutes after the interval and then spurned a chance to make it 10 when he had a last-minute penalty saved.
Javier Saviola scored twice as Olympiakos pipped Benfica to second spot in Group C by beating visitors Anderlecht 3-1. It was an extraordinary match in which the Belgians finished with eight men after the Greek side scored one penalty having missed two.
Benfica beat group winners Paris St Germain 2-1 but drop into the Europa League.
Substitute Tomas Wagner scored in the final minute as Viktoria Plzen came from behind to beat a nine-man CSKA Moscow 2-1 to secure a place in the Europa League.
Unmarked Wagner collected a Frantisek Rajtoral cross to net the winner, after Ahmed Musa had headed home in the 65th minute to put CSKA ahead before Daniel Kolar equalised with a header in the 76th minute.
