It seems that one future participant of the RPL has already been identified. And “Torpedo” can fly again
Former Spartak player Obukhov scored the second goal after disqualification.
Orenburg and Torpedo are the main contenders for the RPL. Over the past two years, each club has been deprived of the opportunity to play in the Premier League on a non-sporting basis: in the 2019/20 season, the Moscow club did not play in head-to-head matches (they were simply canceled), and a year later Orenburg for a stadium that does not comply with regulations. Today the teams met for the second time this season: if Torpedo won in September, this time Orenburg was stronger.
17 goals in three FNL matches! “Krasnodar-2” with the legionnaires took down the leader, “Torpedo” gave the show
Orenburg started the match with a big advantage. The leaders of the championship had many moments during the first half, but none of them turned into a goal. Forward Joel Famée posed a threat at the gate, and got the best opportunity to open the scoring in the 45th minute.
Torpedo defender Ivan Enin received a second yellow card for a foul in the penalty area (the first was 10 minutes earlier) and left the team ten.
The best scorer of “Orenburg” (“Fameia has 12 goals”) came to the “point”, but scored a weak penalty – an excellent save was made by Vitaly Botnar. For the 20-year-old goalkeeper, this is the second 11-meter shot taken in his career out of 12. But Famie has not scored the third penalty of the season.

“Orenburg” came out in the second half furious and scored immediately. Vladimir Obukhov was at the right time in the right place – closed the canopy. For the 30-year-old pupil of “Spartak” this is the second goal in five matches. From July 2020 to March 2022, Obukhov had zero goals scored (although he missed six months due to disqualification).

Playing on counterattacks is the only way out when you remain in the minority. “Torpedo” gave the ball to the hosts and tried to use their rare chances. But none of the attempts was successful – “Orenburg” managed to return and avert the threat. Even fresh forces did not help Torpedo: substitutes Egor Proshkin, Amur Kalmykov and Pavel Sedko did not bring the team closer to a draw.

Thanks to Obukhov’s goal, Orenburg took revenge for the defeat in the first round. Now the Torpedoes are eight points behind the championship leader and have one game left. Alexander Borodyuk’s team is losing important points, making it difficult for them to fight for a direct place in the RPL. “Orenburg” broke away by 10 points from third place.
It seems that nothing will stop Marcel Lichka’s team from joining the RPL. Unless unsportsmanlike circumstances intervene again.
