Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored against his former club Ajax as Paris St-Germain secured a fourth straight Champions League win to stay top of Group F.

Edinson Cavani opened the scoring for the hosts before Davy Klaassen levelled with a powerful header midway through the second half.

But Sweden striker Ibrahimovic made it 2-1 with a cool finish before Cavani added another after a poor backpass.

Elsewhere, Shakhtar Donetsk qualified despite losing 1-0 to Athletic Bilbao.

There were also wins for Sporting Lisbon and Porto, while CSKA Moscow held Roma in Russia.

Paris St-Germain will advance to the knockout phase as group winners if they avoid defeat against Barcelona when the two sides meet at the Nou Camp on 10 December.

Sporting, who have a two-point cushion over Schalke, face leaders Chelsea in their final group game next month.

Athletic Bilbao recorded their first win in Group H beating Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 in Ukraine.

But Shakhtar were already assured of a place in the next round after Porto's 3-0 victory at Belarusian side BATE Borisov earlier in the day.

Roma's Francesco Totti - already the oldest scorer in the Champions League - extended that record by opening the scoring in his side's 1-1 draw at CSKA Moscow at the age of 38 years and 59 days.

But Vasily Berezutsky's equaliser 17 seconds from the end of added time kept the Russians in the race for the knockout stages and sets up a thrilling final round of matches in Group E, with Manchester City, Roma and CSKA all tied on five points.

CSKA travel to already qualified Bayern Munich, while Roma entertain City on 10 December.
