At the half way point in the league FC Zurich lead the way from FC Basel and Young Boys in another predictable season. At the bottom FC Luzern are bottom with Vaduz and Bellinzona just above - it will be a long hard second half for these three. Zurich continued their form throughout the whole season, winning the title by six points from Young Boys, with FCB finishing in a disappointing third place, and cost Christian Gross his job.
In the Swiss Cup FC Concordia Basel produced the shock of the round by beating Xamax 4-0 to set up a quarter final tie in March with FC Luzern. Sion in the end won the cup, coming from two down to beat Young Boys 3-2 in the final.
In Europe the picture was very bleak. Despite becoming the first Swiss club to reach the Champions League Group Stages in almost a decade, FC Basel picked up just one point from games versus Barcelona, Sporting Lisbon and Shakhtar Donestk. Add this to the dismal display by teams in the UEFA Cup where all of them were out by the final qualifying round and you can see that Swiss football is not in the best shape.
