Sokol added three points in Moscow and remains in the leading group.
The final match of the Saturday program of the 4th round of the Melbet First League brought a sensational result. Torpedo, setting himself the most serious tasks, lost in Moscow to Sokol.
“Torpedo” entered the new season in the status of one of the main, if not the main contenders for promotion. The club officials made it clear that the team’s goal is an instant return to the RPL. In the first two rounds, words were no different from deeds. Avtozavodtsy beat Dynamo Makhachkala (2:0), and then squeezed Khimki (2:1), with whom they played in the RPL last season. This was followed by a draw with Chernomorets (1:1), but the Moscow club retained its place in the leading group.

This time, Sokol came to visit Torpedo. The Saratov club is currently managed by Denis Boyarintsev. Yes, yes, the same one who once ran for Spartak. And he spent the last few years of his playing career at Torpedo. In the first round, Sokol miserably lost to Rodina (0:4), but after that they faced Shinnik (3:2) and Khabarovsk SKA (1:0). Six points after three rounds is a good result.
Avtozavodtsy acquired two strong newcomers last week. Both Dmitry Poloz and Georgy Gongadze played in the RPL last season, and have now decided to move to the First League status club. Gongadze, by the way, became Fakel’s top scorer, but he left Voronezh because he did not agree with the financial aspect of the contract. Georgiy went to the base for the match with Sokol, as a result of which 40-year-old Igor Lebedenko sat down on the bench.
In the first half, Torpedo owned the ball much more frequently, but the locals lacked details in the final stretch. Gongadze acted very actively, albeit sometimes chaotically. It seemed that sooner or later the guests would falter. But in reality, everything turned out differently. In the 75th minute, Denis Boyarintsev’s team played a perfect set piece and scored, as it turned out, the winning goal. Torpedo goalkeeper Yegor Baburin cleared the ball after a sighted backheel from Nikita Kozlovsky, and Vladislav Morozov was the first to shoot. The 22-year-old midfielder scored the first goal of the season, eight minutes after coming on as a substitute.

“Torpedo” surpassed the opponent in possession of the ball and the number of corners, but it was not possible to get at least one goal out of this. As a result, the first defeat for Clotet’s team in the 2023/2024 season. And Sokol has already scored nine points and surpassed Torpedo in the table. According to the results of the Saturday program of the tour in the First League, there are three leaders at once: Akron, Tyumen and Sokol. True, the Zhigulevsk team has one match less. On August 6, Evgeny Kaleshin’s team will meet with Alania. It sounds very intriguing!
