The RFU Executive Committee took the decision to approve overtime without the results of the first division, the second tier of Russian football, a season which was stopped due to pandemic coronavirus.
This means that in the main division will rise two teams of the first division – “the Rotor” from Volgograd (56 points) under the leadership of the Belarusian coach Alyaksandr Khatskevich (former coach of Kiev “Dynamo”), as well as Khimki Moscow region (54), if these teams will be the licensing.
We will remind, against completion were three teams: “Chertanovo”, “torpedo” and “Neftekhimik”. All three remained as chances of direct access to RPL, and on the play-offs. Cortanovci scored as many points as second-ranked “Khimki” (54), at Avtozavodtsev one less (53), Nizhnekamsk was fifth (48).
