Grasshoppers defeated by Neuchatel Xamax

Grasshoppers' hopes of competing in Europe next season have suffered a huge setback after they were defeated by Neuchatel Xamax 1-3. By contrast, Lausanne football team have notched another win, this time over Yverdon 2-0.

Lausanne's win means they now push six points clear of Grasshoppers in the chase for the remaining European spot.

The top three teams are guarenteed a place in European competition. The champions go through to play in the Champion League qualification rounds.

Ironically, Grasshoppers could sneak a European place if Lausanne win next week's Swiss Cup final. In that case, the cup winners' berth would go to the fourth-placed team in the league.
