There has been no such penalty for survival in the RPL for a long time. Who has what possibilities?

Date: July 18, 2024 Time: 04:23:23

Surprisingly, no one wants to join the First League. We remember examples from past years, when at least one team quickly fell to the last place in the RPL and in winter its prospects were clear. They didn’t strengthen their squad, they took the losses in stride and simply waited for the inevitable. Now it’s kind of an anomaly.

Before the beginning of spring, it seemed that the problem with the main relegation candidates had been resolved: Baltika and Sochi were last, without much prospects. And how quickly everything changed. The interesting game of the Kaliningraders finally began to give results, and the Sochi team reorganized the team and invited a new coach. The result is not a single defeat in the spring. Although still in last place.

How the judges worked in round 25:

Who is going?

Now Ajmat and Sochi occupy 15th and 16th place, respectively. For the inhabitants of Grozny, this place is a special surprise, because even before the winter break they were in 13th place and with a four-point lead over the relegation zone. It is clear that without a brave game, but few expected that in spring everything would be so bad. At first Akhmat won, but then he fell very sharply. The change of head coach did not help: under Adiev, who urgently took charge of the team after the departure of Romashchenko, little has changed. At first, for sure: two defeats, including 1:7 against Baltika. Then, the match against CSKA, where the opponent took the lead, but the last 15 minutes gave hope. Akhmat unexpectedly took victory instead of losing in the fifth consecutive match.

Now Akhmat has 23 points. And three points for 12th place. The calendar is not too complicated. Many things will be decided on April 25 in the match against Sochi. If they win, they will leave their rivals at the bottom and themselves will significantly increase their chances of getting out of the relegation zone. But in case of defeat… But we will not consider this option for now. Next up will be a home match against the weakened Paris NN, two trips to Krasnodar and Samara, a home match against Zenit and in the last round the visiting Fakel. You can hold on in every game. The question is whether Adiev will be able to adequately adapt the psychology of the footballers and convince them that nothing has been lost yet.

Sochi has not suffered a single defeat in the spring. And what a shame that so many points were lost in the fall. With Moreno, the situation is generally surprising: four out of six matches under the leadership of the Spaniard ended with a score of 2:2. Also, a point with Baltika and a victory over Spartak. Of course, Robert’s arrival at the club is a very bold experiment. He does not prepare the “bus” in the hope of a random goal, but tries to act as the number one in each match; This is neither obvious nor unexpected. But all this still does not allow the Sochi team to rise to at least 15th place.

At the same time, the team’s schedule allows them to retain their place in the RPL, but almost everything will be decided with Akhmat: if they win, the gap will be reduced to one point. And this is completely different. Next up is “Fakel,” who is still falling apart after renewing his contract with Tashuev. Pari NN and Rubin are not particularly motivated. Yes, also “Dynamo” and “Krasnodar”, but at the time of the meeting everything can become clear to them.

However, if the Sochi team even makes it to the play-offs, it will already be a great success. After all, I don’t want a coach like Moreno to leave the RPL in the summer.

They don’t want to reach the First Division at all:

Who’s nervous now?

Before the winter break, Ural was on the brink: 12th place and two points ahead of the playoff zone. But a failed start to the spring led the team to this unpleasant zone. Three defeats, two draws and only one victory, nothing like what the Club expected. Therefore, there are now 24 points, 14th place and two points to save the place now occupied by Orenburg. But the feeling is that the ideal scenario for Ural would be simply not to fall into the relegation zone. And staying on the joints is definitely not the worst option.

The calendar for residents of Yekaterinburg, in principle, works and allows them to stay in their current place: at home: “Rostov”, “Baltika”, “Orenburg”. That is, playing with two competitors on your own field. Out: Rubin, Fakel and CSKA at goal. There will probably be tension until the last round. After all, the team has not been in the First League for 11 years.

A point below the Urals is the Baltika. An outsider who knew how to escape from the relegation zone, where many rounds were located. But there is a simple scenario: the Kaliningraders have never played as outsiders before, but now their style has started to give points. In spring, three victories. The same as throughout the fall.

But the Baltic calendar is the most complex: the best or motivated competitors await them. Trips to Krasnodar, Yekaterinburg and Rostov-on-Don. And home games with CSKA, Dynamo and Lokomotiv. Sergei Ignashevich’s team will not be favorites in any of these matches. But maybe there’s nothing wrong with that.

Who is nearby?

Orenburg and Fakel have only two points more than Ural. Therefore, it is definitely too early for them to relax. Same as Pari NN. Orenburg is one of those teams that has spent a long time at the bottom of the table. Therefore, it is a privilege for them to enter the “clean zone.” They were eliminated from the Cup not long ago, so in this sense it is easier for them.

But the schedule is not easy either: three matches with Moscow clubs: Dynamo, Lokomotiv and Spartak. As well as “Rostov”, “Alas” and “Ural”.

And what happens with the “Torch” is a mystery. As soon as the club renewed the contract with Sergei Tashuev, the team lost three times in a row. Even at Rostov’s home field. As if two victories over Spartak became the quintessence of the season. And you don’t have to go out into the field anymore. Although it’s too early to capture those moods. At home they will have matches against Krylia, Zenit and Ural. There are definitely good chances of scoring points in two games. And it is important to take advantage of this.
