Will CSKA take silver and Malcolm become top scorer? All the intrigues of day 30 of the RPL

The last day of the season is given over to cool events!

The Russian Premier League season is coming to an end. Zenit became champions for the fifth year in a row, but several intriguing scenarios remain. What events will end in RPL round 30?

Who will be ahead of everyone in the race for silver: CSKA, Spartak or Rostov?

The most interesting plot is the fight of three clubs for the silver medals. The best opportunities remain with CSKA: the team is in second place and is ahead of Spartak and Rostov by one and two points, respectively. The epic is added by the fact that in the 30th round the army team and the Rostovites will face each other. If CSKA wins, the redjiazules will continue second and take the silver. If Rostov takes three points, there will be more options for the distribution of places in the top 3. Valery Karpin’s team in this case will definitely take at least third place. Or maybe the second, it depends on Spartak. The rojiblancos will play against Wings of the Soviets in a parallel match.

If Spartak wins, they will finish the season in the top 3. If CSKA draw or lose, the rojiblancos will move up to second place. But if Abascal’s team doesn’t get all three points, they could fall out of the top three. For this, Rostov needs to beat CSKA. Overall, each of the three clubs can take both second and fourth place. The easiest is CSKA (it is enough not to lose), it is more difficult for Rostov (the southerners only win to be in the top 3). We are waiting for two burning matches!

The fight of three clubs for a place that saves joints

The fun isn’t just at the top of the table. Three clubs are also fighting to save 12th place, which gives the right to avoid joints: Fakel, Krylya Sovetov and Pari NN. Now the Voronezh team is above all, but it will have the most difficult match on the 30th round. Vadim Evseev’s team in St. Petersburg will play the champion – “Zenith”. Yes, the Blue and Whites are no longer motivated, but the class of players is enough to beat Fakel for the good of his fans. “Wings” will receive “Spartak”, fighting for silver. Those from Samaran will have a difficult match, but given the instability of the rojiblancos and the factor of their own field, Igor Osinkin’s team has many chances.

The easiest opponent was for Pari NN. Nizhny Novgorod will host Khimki, which has already been relegated to the First League. But Sergey Yuran’s team has the most difficult situation in the tournament. In addition to his victory, “Pari NN” must reckon with the misfires of the competitors. Torch has 30 points, Wings has 29, Nizhny Novgorod has 27. Here, as in the fight for silver, there are many final options.

“Torch” is one of the main wonders of the RPL:

“Torch” had to take off. His success shows that there is room for a miracle in the RPL

Will “Akhmat” repeat the best result in its history?

The Grozny club lost to Rostov (2:3) in the 29th round and missed the chance to win medals for the first time in history. Akhmat will no longer be higher than fifth place, the team’s best result in the RPL. In the 2016/2017 season, Grozny, under the leadership of Rashid Rakhimov, ended up on this line. Now Akhmat is one step away from repeating the achievement.

Everything will be decided in a head-to-head meeting in round 30 with Krasnodar. It is the “bulls” who follow “Akhmat”, two points behind. A win or draw will allow Akhmat to stay in the top 5, and a loss will push him back to sixth. In the spring segment, Grozny scored 23 points in 12 matches (4th result), Krasnodar – 22 (5th). Both clubs did a great job in the second part of the championship. It is all the more fair that they will decide the question in a personal match.

Will Lokomotiv finish the season in the top eight?

It is painful for Loko fans to remember the first part of RPL-2022/2023. The team paused in 14th place with 13 points, just one point clear of the relegation zone. The German experiment at Loko failed. Mikhail Galaktionov came to save the team. The coach managed to reincarnate the rojiverdes. In the spring segment, Lokomotiv is first in terms of points scored (29). In the table, the team shot up to ninth place.

Who would have thought that before round 30 Loko would count on being in the top eight? For this, the railway workers must beat Torpedo at home and wait for Orenburg’s failure in the match against Dynamo. Lokomotiv’s worst season in the Russian era is 2012/2013. So the team took ninth place. This season, Loko will not drop any further, but it can avoid repeating the worst result.

Who will be the top scorer in the RPL?

The latest intrigue is the results of the goalscoring race. Malcom leads the list with 23 goals. But the Brazilian flew home with his family and misses the last few rounds. Spartak striker Quincy Promes is three goals behind Malcolm. To catch up with the Zenit winger, the Dutchman needs to score a hat-trick in a match with the Wings. It sounds unlikely, but what if Quincy succeeds?
