Gubernia Nizhny Novgorod and Zenit Kazan accordingly won their matches in the 19th round of Superleague and both teams are classified on the top of standings for four legs before the close of the regular season and only a true disaster can take them away the final triumph. Iskra Odincovo noted another regress of its shape one again this season.

 

The team is compared to a ‘’rollercoaster’’ achieving spectacular ups, but also embarrassing downs. What is worse, this lack of stability may affect its absence in play-offs. It may be a result of worrisome news from the suburban of Moscow. Iskra Odincovo is said to have significant financial difficulties and the Italian coaching staff may leave Iskra in the near future.
