Tambov lost again in the Russian championship and that was not a good thing. He’s in the relegation playoff zone and needs a lot more effort to get out of this situation. It is true that he will face a team from the top of the table, but he cannot lose points. Therefore, you will have to present a more qualified football with fewer errors to achieve a victory.
