FC Basel rewrites history with fifth straight title

FC Basel supporters are celebrating having Switzerland's most successful football team ever.

FC Basel made history on Thursday by becoming the first club to win five consecutive Swiss league titles.
   
Murat Yakin's side won 3-1 away to Aarau to remain four points clear of second-placed Grasshopper, from Zurich, who beat Lucerne 4-1, with one match remaining.
   
It is Basel's 17th Swiss title altogether and they go straight into next season's Champions League.
