First Division. Nothing dramatic at the lower end: FC Chiasso was last with measly 10 points. Not much better, AC Bellinzona ended 15th with 12 points.
FC Luzern had terrible season, but at least they were never in danger of relegation – 14th with 22 points.
Vevey-Sports was understandably near he bottom – 13th with 24 points.
FC Zurich suffered big decline – 12th with 24 points.
Young Boys (Bern) – 11th with 25 points.
FC Aarau – 10th with 27 points.
FC Basel, evidently in bad shape, although not as disastrous as FC Zurich, finished 9th with 28 points.
FC Wettingen – not bad. For them, that is. 8th with 30 points.
FC La Chaux-de-Fonds – 7th with 33 points.
Lausanne-Sports – 6th with 34 points. So far, including Lausanne, the bulk of the league had nothing to do with the title, but the last 5 teams fought for it hard. 4 points was the final difference between them and 4 teams finished with equal points.
FC St. Gallen ended 5th – 40 points, but they lost 4th place on worse goal-difference.
Xamax (Neuchatel) enjoyed very strong period – 4th this year and only thanks to better goal-difference, but nothing to be ashamed of: they really run for the title.
FC Sion was the pleasant surprise: normally a mid-table team, they had wonderful season, coming close to winning the championship, but eventually settle for 3rd place with 43 points – two teams extracted one point more than them.
Servette (Geneve) finished with 44 points from 19 wins, 6 ties and 5 losses. Goal-difference: 67-31, the best in the league. But… it did not count, the rules proscribed a play-off in case of teams finishing with equal points. Servette was more than likely grumbling against this rule… Standing from left: Schnyder, Hasler, Henry, Castella, Mathez, Mattioli, Jaccard, Dutoit, Geiger
Crouching: Cacciapaglia, Brigger, Elia, Dechoudens, Burgener, Barberis, Renquin, Decastel.
Servette fans may have called Grasshopper lucky, but the team was hardly a simple lucky squad: technically, they finished the season 2nd , having worse goal-difference than Servette. In everything else they were absolutely equal – 19 wins, 6 ties, 5 losses. It was tough battle between 5 teams, so nobody can blame Grasshopper for not been ahead of Servette. At the decisive play-off they managed to prevail in overtime 1-0. Well, that was that – they scored and Servette did not. One more title for them – a third consecutive, making it 19 in total.
