The start of the season the team looked bright in the spring of the previous championship, obviously failed. Although in the last meeting with Zenit (1: 2) «Ural» we showed good football and could even count on victory.
«Torpedo» also only once at the start of the season managed to draw the match at 2 defeats — with a total score of 3: 13, and by the difference of scored and conceded goals Nicolai Savicheva occupy the last place. Two of the tournament in the opening with the best clubs in the country — CSKA and Zenit — gained steel disaster (1: 4 and 1: 8), But then the team could win in the game omkaram» (1: 1).
