Football: FC Basel makes history, retains Swiss title

LAUSANNE (AFP) - 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, who beat Luzern 4-1, with one match remaining.

It is Basel's 17th Swiss title altogether and they go straight into next season's Champions League.
