David Andreoli scored the only goal two minutes before half-time as Luzern won their second match of the campaign. FC Basel took advantage of Grasshoppers' loss to close the gap at the top to three points with a 4-0 home victory over FC Zürich 4-0.
Basel could relax in the second half as all the goals came before the break. Hakan Yakin with two, Christian Gimenez and Julio Hermán Rossi were on target for the champions ahead of Wednesday's UEFA Champions League qualifier with Celtic FC.
BSC Young Boys and Neuchâtel Xamax FC drew 1-1 on Saturday as Johan Berisha cancelled out Leandro's sublime opening goal direct from a 25-metre free-kick. FC St. Gallen and FC Wil 1900 also shared the points in a 2-2 draw, although newly promoted Wil will rue two dropped points after they had led 2-0.
Another team new to the top flight, FC Thun, found the going tough as they lost 3-1 at Servette FC. The game was a special one for Léonard Thurre as he got the opening goal in his first game back after a year on the sidelines.
Ojong the hero
Cameroonian striker Samuel Ojong was the hero today as SR Delémont beat FC Aarau 2-1. Frédéric Chassot registered for Aarau in the tenth minute before Harlington Shereni levelled just after half-time. Ojong had the final say of the weekend, striking the winner on 62 minutes.
