Russia: no upsets in Round 24. Only Kemerovo loses one point

1 min read

No upsets in the 5 matches of the Russian Superliga played yesterday and valid for Round 24. In fact, win for all the top 5 teams took the field: Kemerovo, Moscow, St. Petersburg (still without Poletaev), Fakel and Novosibirsk. The only one to lose a point, against Surgut, is Kuzbass Kemerovo, but nothing serious as it will be enough to win two of the next four games to secure second place and access F6 without going through the preliminary round.
