Switzerland round-up: Baturina sinks Zürich

Grasshopper-Club had Mate Baturina's late goal to thank for their 2-1 win against FC Zürich.

A last-minute Mate Baturina goal gave Grasshopper-Club a 2-1 win against FC Zürich.

Late drama
The Croatian struck deep into added time to hand the away side a dramatic victory against their local rivals at the Letzigrund stadium. Alhassane Keita had given the hosts a first-half lead, but Brazilian striker Eduardo levelled after the interval before Baturina's strike.

Servette off the mark
In Geneva, Servette FC enjoyed their first win of the season, 2-0 against FC St. Gallen. Sébastien Fournier and Thierno Bah scored the club's first goals of the new season, leaving St. Gallen without a point or a goal from their first two games.

Misery for St. Gallen
Servette's former Switzerland international goalkeeper Marco Pascolo saved a 49th-minute Luiz Filho Jairo spot-kick, and the away team's miserable day was compounded by Pascal Jenny's dismissal after 69 minutes.

Three for Luzern
In today’s other match, FC Luzern enjoyed a comfortable 3-0 win against Nationalliga A newcomers SR Delémont in Allmend. Francisco Arrue scored from a penalty spot for his second of the season before another midfield player, Patrick Koch, scored twice.
