FC Basel won their fourth successive Swiss league football title on Wednesday after beating Young Boys of Berne 1-0 in the penultimate game of the campaign.

A penalty by Fabian Frei was enough to seal the championship in a memorable season that saw them reach the Europa League semi-finals, beating Spurs on the way, where they lost to eventual winners Chelsea.

Basel, winning their 16th league title, hold a three point lead over Grasshoppers but have a significantly better goal difference.
   
Grasshoppers, though, can be content that they deprived Basel of the 
domestic double having beaten them in the Swiss Cup final.
