Frei brace boosts Basel
Alexander Frei took his goals tally for the week up to four as Basel claimed a 3-0 victory over Servette to move into second place in the Swiss

Basel are six points behind unbeaten leaders Lucerne, who take on third-placed Young Boys tomorrow.
In Saturday's other game, Neuchatel Xamax moved within a point of fifth-placed FC Thun as they ran out 4-0 winners.
Neuchatel led 2-0 at the break with goals from Javier Arizmendi and Geoffrey Treand before Sebastian Wuthrich made it three in the 64th minute and Paito wrapped it up eight minutes from time.
