Russia»Division 1

The fate of leadership will be decided on the Baltic coast.

The fourth round of the FNL is very important to the league point of view: it may finally decide the championship leaders and outsiders, but the main issue of the upcoming tour – remain a “rotor” individual leadership, and whether to go to White Castle, or lead the table once again will be a few commands?

At the bottom of the table, too, there was an interesting situation: almost certainly fall into the relegation zone Astrakhan “Volgar” skipping this tour, but who can escape from the basement of the standings and will be reflected as a possible defeat in the tournament the fate of one of the principal participants in the tour matches “Shinnik – Spartak Nalchik “?

Yenisei” – “Metallurg-Kuzbass”

In the last round, “Metallurg-Kuzbass” shown that it can deal with any opponent by taking away points from “Ural”, “Yenisei” is held not a very convincing match against “Petrotrest”, played only 10 minutes before the end of the meeting, but despite not this is a favorite in the match will still remain the owners – the players, “Yenisei”.

For the team from Krasnoyarsk, this match – a great chance to gain a foothold in the group of leaders. “Metallurg” would suit and tie, in order to feel more confident in the mid-table.

As part of a disqualification novokuznechan Samoilov . In the first team “Yenisey” no casualties. 

“Yenisei”: Carpenters – Pyatikopov, Cachan, Shabaev, Lemamba – Sitdikov, Fatullayev Leshonok, Rozhkov – Koža, Bazanov. 

“Metallurg-Kuzbass”: Sautin – Egorov, čini se Buhryakov Nedorezov – Klimenko, Volgin Sapaev, Tkachuk – Shpakov, Kirillov. 

“Khimki” – “Tom”

Khimki, although it lost the last match, “Rotor”, it looked much more interesting than the beginning of the championship: it seems Tarkhanov, gradually adjusts the game team, but the test of “Khimki” to be extremely serious, “Tom” is gaining momentum and it seems quite prepared to fight for place in the Premier League.

To win the game on both teams motivated: Tomsk citizens three points are needed in order not to fall out of the group leaders, and in certain hands, the chair and the table. “Khimki” share the same last place in the table with “Volgar”, “Petrotrest” and “Torpedo” (in the last game in hand) and must score points in every game.

In a match with “Rotor” defender “Khimki” Mamaev received a red card and will miss the game with Tomsk citizens. 

“Khimki”: Budak – Cruel, Belotserkovsky, Efimov, Kuznetsov – Pooh Hatazhenkov, Alexanian, Kuznetsov – Voronkin, Kuleshov. 

“Tom”: Vashek – Aravin, Omelyanchuk, Nikolov, Stroyev – Petrakov, Dimidko, Sabitov, Sorokin – Khazov, Bazhenov.

“Ufa” – “Salyut”

Two teams that could be called the discoveries of the championship, come together in an internal fight in the capital of Bashkortostan. “Ufa” after three tours has an unexpected second place and, apparently, Bashkir team led by Kolyvanov could build on this success. The “Salyut” a little worse – the team is in 11th place, but while the density of the table is that in case of victory, Belgorod bypass “Ufa” according to the number of points.

“Salute” at the start of the championship has shown that the team is justifiably claim to be high on the FNL: Belgorod play every match until the end, the moral and strong-willed and quite able to slow down speeding Bashkir club. On the other hand, the football, “Ufa” – one of the most spectacular and successful in the first division, so we provided an interesting match.

Neither Ufimtsev or Belgorod any problems with the starting lineup does not have.

“Ufa”: Kobozev – Popov, Vasilenko, Alikin, Smirnov – Oliveira, Osadchuk, meeting, and Vasiliev, Voydel – Galyshev. 

“Salute”:Krivoruchko – Kaleshin, Tsukanov, Miroshnichenko, Starks – Kobenko, Kushov, Tkachuk, Roy – Bazhev, Kabuto.

“Baltika” – “Rotor”

The central match of the tour will be held in Kaliningrad, and it will come together in the championship leader, “Rotor” and the team that comes fourth in the table – a local “Baltika”. As shown by the FNL start, both teams found their game, are in good shape and show an interesting attacking football: All this gives grounds to believe that Kaliningrad will match is highly entertaining.

Motivation League teams before the game is simple: “Rotor”, in case of victory, will retain its leadership, “Baltika”, if he wins this match will bypass the Volgograd in the standings. The defeat will hit Kaliningrad and, practically, “detach” them from the leading group. According to forecasts, sees quite a likely outcome is a draw, and not without reason. Intentionally or neutral result in the “rotor” or “Baltika”, of course, will not play, but mathematically, a draw and those suits, and others.

For the “Baltic” in this match will not be able to play Gacko : he disqualification. There are problems and “rotor”: a series of major players injured, but Volgograd, until quite successfully compensate for the fact that the long bench.

“Baltika”: Kolinko – Ibragimov, Plop, Zimulka, Ignatiev – Zyuzins, Chirkin, Shubladze, Sysuyev – Levshin Votinov. 

“Rotor”:Pchelintsev – ions, Malygin, Zinin, Olenikov – Rashevsky, Todorovic, Rylov, Arlashin – Pugin, Stavpets.

“Neftekhimik” – “Torpedo”

Both teams have already noted unexpected results in the matches with his participation: “Torpedo” devastating lost “Ufa”, and “Neftekhimik” made so far the biggest sensation of the championship in the last round, winning on the road Nalchik “Spartacus,” and it is likely that a team from Nizhnekamsk courage to try to continue winning streak, the benefit of a rival can afford it. To say that the “Torpedo” fever – do not say anything. The legendary club is after three rounds of last place in the table (without, however, game in hand), and shows unusual for a gray and dismal football.

However, travel to Tatarstan may be that necessary to shake torpedovtsev: Class “Neftekhimik” is not so high as to win the Muscovites, in order to leave the relegation zone, simply must, as neighbors in the table are likely to rack up in this round a minimum score: “Volgar” tour passes, and the chances of “Khimki” and “Petrotrest” low.

“Neftekhimik” problems with the composition does not feel, but the starting lineup after the Muscovites Ufa fiasco raises many questions.

“Neftekhimik”: Losev – Ustinov and Kulikov, Piskunov, Varzi – Dzahov, Djalilov Makhmutov Galiulin – Portnyagin, rising

“Torpedo”: Klevinskas – Epifanov, Shumeyko, Mishchenko, Molodtsov – Boyarintsev, Rodin, Gasinski, Bezlihotnov – Glass, Gaurachs.
