Switzerland round-up: Grasshoppers bounce back

Grasshopper-Club beat third-placed BSC Young Boys 2-0 to reclaim top spot on Sunday.

Grasshopper-Club left it late to defeat third-placed BSC Young Boys 2-0 on Sunday, reclaiming top spot in the Swiss Nationalliga A.

Thrilling finale
Both goals came in the last five minutes, Richard Nuñez striking on 85 minutes and Ricardo Eduardo slamming in at the death.

Ergic decisive
FC Basel had taken temporary lead of the division when they edged out Servette FC 1-0 on Saturday, Ivan Ergic grabbing the decisive goal to take them two points ahead of Grasshoppers.

Wil march on
With a 3-1 victory over FC Zürich, FC Wil 1900 strengthened their chances of reaching the play-offs as they now lie ahead of Servette in fifth spot thanks to goals from Dejan Pavlovic, Yacouba Bamba and Mauro Lustrinelli.

Delémont deliver
SR Delémont overcame Neuchatel Xamax FC 2-1 when Zenun Selimi, at the end of the first half, and Samuel Ojong, at the beginning of the second, made Leandro Fonseca’s opener irrelevant.

Three points for Thun
Elsewhere, FC St.Gallen defeated struggling FC Aarau 1-0 with a 64th minute strike from Lionel Gane while Nationalliga new boys FC Thun collected a 2-1 victory over FC Luzern.
