Switzerland round-up: Grasshoppers held

Grasshopper-Club stayed six points of Servette FC in the Swiss championship group with a 2-2 draw.

Third-placed Grasshopper-Club stayed six points of Servette FC in the Swiss Nationalliga A championship group after the sides drew 2-2 on Friday.

Nuñez double
Grasshoppers could have gone second if they had won, and led twice through Ricardo Nuñez goals on 12 and 49 minutes. However Servette hauled themselves level both times with strikes from Alexandre Comisetti (14 minutes) and Wilson Oruma (72 minutes).

UEFA Cup qualification
The point ensures that Servette stay fourth. The sides that finish second and third in Switzerland both qualify for the UEFA Cup.
