Clubs first division, the second tier of Russian football, by a majority of voters voted for the early end of the season. Final approval is the decision of the Executive Committee of the RFU.
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, as well as Khimki Moscow region (of course, if the team pass the licensing).
Against completion were three of the team “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).
Not likely will finish the season in RPL, Russian top division. Coach-assistant Anatoliy Tymoshchuk and defender Yaroslav Rakitskiy, apparently, will be Champions of Russia with Zenit St Petersburg. The group stage of the Champions League will come “Zenit” and “locomotive” and “Krasnodar” – in the qualification. In the Europa League will play “Rostov”, CSKA and “Dynamo”.
