Last-minute winner

Bottom club FC Sion went down 2-1 at FC St. Gallen, despite taking the lead through Mobulu M'Futi. Daniel Imhof restored parity at the Espenmoos stadium before Marco Walker hit a last-minute winner.

Points clinched
Elsewhere, FC Lugano's hopes of second place were dented by a 3-1 home defeat by Servette FC. Marcelo Rosa Da Silva clinched the points after goals from Joel Magnin and Dimitri Mitchkov had sandwiched a Johann Lonfat strike.
