In the championship the FNL, second division of Russia, there could be a readjustment in connection with the removal of “Armavir”. Previously, the majority of League clubs voted for the early termination of the tournament, which was interrupted due to pandemic coronavirus.
Thus, the clubs must remain in their current locations. The first two places, giving the right output in the HRC, is a “Rotor” (under the leadership of Alexander Khatskevich) and “Khimki”. The decision outraged the following three commands, which vouchers have not got: “Chertanovo”, “torpedo” and “Neftekhimik”.
However, since “Armavir” announced the withdrawal from the draw on April 20, the points need to be recalculated. According to the regulations in Germany, if the team spent less than 50 percent of the matches, all the matches of the second round, including games played, she count defeat with the account 0:3, and the rivals – victory 3:0.
“Torpedo” lost “Armavir” in the second round and could get three extra points. Thus, the team of Sergei Ignashevich will not 53 points and 56, and it will rise from 4th place to first. Rotor will fall on the 2nd, and “Khimki” and “Chertanovo” – the 3rd and 4th, respectively.
Russia has offered a new option – to arrange a mini-tournament with participation of the top four or five teams based on points. Then it will not be on hand to “Rotor” Khatskevich, the promotion of which may be questionable.
