CAIRO: Essam Al-Hadari s Sion slipped to the relegation zone after losing 3-2 to Neuchatel Xamax in the Swiss Super League on Sunday.
Midfielder Sebastien Wuthrich put Neuchatel ahead on the hour mark.
A brace from Ideye Aide Brown on 70 and 80 minutes killed off Sion s hopes of getting something from the game.
Sion s Costa Rican striker Alvaro Saborio scored twice in stoppage time but his efforts were just consolation.
Despite conceding three goals, Egypt keeper Al-Hadari put in a fine display and prevented Sion from suffering an embarrassing defeat as he thwarted many attempts from the hosts.
Sion, who failed to build on their 1-0 victory over Vaduz last week, lie third from bottom in the league table with 21 points.
