The updated composition of the FC, which will play in the Russian Championship and the football 2019-2020, includes.
The team from St. Petersburg, who won the championship in the previous championship. At the moment, she takes first place in the standings. In the new year, Petersburgers have already played three matches, having won in each. So far, Zenit has the most points from the participating teams - 10. Analysts are convinced that it is the St. Petersburg FC that will win this championship by defending the league title.
The Krasnodar team is one of the main rivals of Zenit. In the last championship, she took third place, but settled down in the standings in second place. And although the year began for the Krasnodar defeat Akhmat with a score of 0: 1, in the next two games they recovered and won. At the moment, Krasnodar has 7 points, and he is in fourth position.
In the last championship, the metropolitan team settled down in second place, but on points got into third. The locomotive is another serious rival of Zenit in the RPL. In the new year, Muscovites have already held four games. Two of them ended with the victory of the capital's FC, one with a draw, and only one with defeat. So far, Lokomotiv has 7 points and is in seventh position in the standings, but analysts believe that it has every chance to rise higher.
Another metropolitan club, determined to win this championship. At the end of last year, the team was in fourth place. The New Year is developing successfully for Muscovites so far. Having lost in the first game, FC rehabilitated and won the next 3. At the moment, CSKA has 9 points and is in second place in the tournament.
The team from Tula showed a good result in the last championship, securing fifth place. This year, the Tula players are still giving up controversial matches, having two wins, one defeat and one draw. At the moment, the team has 7 points, which allows it to be in sixth place in the tournament.
Last year, Rostov FC took only sixth position. In the new championship, the team seemed intent on winning, if not winning, then the prize. Currently, Rostov has spent four matches, having won two victories and tied twice. The team already has 8 points, and in the tournament it is in third place.
The once prestigious Moscow FC continues to lose ratings. In the last championship, he was able to stay only in seventh position. In the new year, the situation for Muscovites is also not the best. Of the four games, Dynamo has only one win, two draws and one loss. Moscow FC so far is only in 10th place in the tournament, having 5 points.
The team from Yekaterinburg continues to show average results. Having taken eighth place in last year’s championship, the Urals however moved up to fifth position. The team has two wins, one draw and only one defeat. Having 7 points, Yekaterinburg residents will soon be able to get around Krasnodar and catch up with Rostov.
This is an incomplete list of the Premier League 2019-2020 teams, but experts rate the prospects of other participants low enough.
The remaining 8 football clubs, according to analysts, are unlikely to qualify for the championship or be on the leaderboard. This list consists of:
- Orenburg - 0 points, 16th place;
- Rubin (Kazan) - 7 points, 8th place;
- Akhmat (Grozny) - 6 points, 9th place;
- Spartak (Moscow) - 5 points, 11th place;
- Tambov - 3 points, 14th place;
- Ufa - 4 points, 12th place;
- Sochi - 1 point, 15th place;
- Wings of the Soviets (Samara) - 3 points, 13th place.
Tambov and Sochi first entered the Premier League, taking first and second place in the championship of the FNL. Anji and Yenisei, on the contrary, left the Premier League, following the results of the championship remaining in 15 and 16 positions. Despite the estimates, experts are considering the likelihood that some FCs will be able to suddenly jump ahead. For example, Akhmat has already defeated Krasnodar with a score of 1-0, although it is much lower in the standings. Therefore, for now, you can only evaluate which teams will play in the Premier League 2020, and assume the results. Giving accurate analytics is possible only after all the games of the first round have passed.
