FC Basel, fresh from their Tuesday night victory in the UEFA Champions League, missed the chance to close the gap on Swiss first division leaders Grasshopper-Club after a 1-1 draw at Neuchâtel Xamax FC.
Barberis saves Basel
Fonseca Leandro put Neuchâtel ahead on 48 minutes, but Basel, despite looking jaded following their heroics against FC Spartak Moskva, came back to equalise seven minutes from the end through Sébastien Barberis.
Young Boys move up
The capital cross-city match saw BSC Young Boys go third after beating high-flying FC Thun 3-0. Johan Berisha scored a double in the first half and Gürkan Sermeter confirmed victory with his 82nd-minute goal.
FC St. Gallen secured a useful point in a 2-2 draw against Servette FC, while FC Luzern led 2-0 away against SR Delémont until the 88th minute, only for their fellow strugglers to score twice before the end to deny their visitors victory, and bottom-placed FC Aarau held FC Wil 1900 0-0.
