Basel stormed to their 13th Swiss Super League title on Sunday with a convincing 2-0 win away to nearest rivals Young Boys to complete a league and cup double.
With a far superior goal difference, Thorsten Fink's men needed just a draw at the Stade de Suisse in Bern to claim the crown after Young Boys relinquished control in the title race with a 5-1 defeat away to Luzern midweek.
The RotBlau put themselves firmly in the driving seat shortly before half-time when homegrown Switzerland international winger Valentin Stocker fired the visitors in front.
Basel then doubled their advantage on the hour mark when veteran Australian utility man Scott Chipperfield scored to put the tie and the championship beyond doubt.
Xavier Hochstrasser was sent off with just four minutes remaining to complete a miserable finish to the campaign for the hosts, who finish second for the second year in succession and have now gone 24 years with without league honours.
Basel's win guarantees them a place in the UEFA Champions League next season and ends the three year dominance of rivals Zurich at the top of Swiss football.

yup, these guys especially, Xherdan Shaqiri, Granit Xhaka and Taulant Xhaka, future Kosovo NT stars.Lausanne is making some run funny considering they weren't even close to promotion.
To me, FC Basel don't have enough depth to me considered a serious European threat. They have some good young players, but not much off the bench
