Paris Saint-Germain and Schalke sealed top spots in their Champions League groups Tuesday, while Cristiano Ronaldo scored his tournament-leading sixth goal to help Real Madrid beat Ajax 4-1.

A 17-minute snow delay during the Dinamo Zagreb-Dynamo Kiev match offered something unexpected on a night when all places in the last 16 were decided before kickoff.

Kaka also scored for Madrid, but Borussia Dortmund had the group won before defeating Manchester City 1-0 to ensure it will be seeded in the Dec. 20 draw.

PSG beat FC Porto 2-1 to top Group A. Arsenal lost 2-1 at Olympiakos, allowing Schalke to be No. 1 in Group B despite drawing 1-1 with Montpellier .

Ajax, Zenit St. Petersburg, Kiev and Olympiakos enter the last 32 of the Europa League.
