Yarmolenko had opened the scoring in the 15th minute after profiting from a shaky defending to fire past David von Ballmoos.

Denis Garmash added a third in the 90th minute, seconds after Christian Fassnacht had pulled one back for the Swiss based outfit.

Mbokani, 31, was poised to sign for Olympiakos from Premier League side Hull City where he spent the season on loan, but the move fell through, leading to his return to Ukraine with mother club Dynamo Kyiv.
