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, which qualifies them for next season's UEFA Champions League. The club have won ten Swiss cups, one League Cup, and three Alp Cups in their storied history.
