Cordobés Pedro Conde debuts with goal in Champions

first_imgPedro Count You already know what it is to mark with the shirt of Shabab Al Ahli. The Cordoba striker opened his scoring account with the Red Knights in an unbeatable scenario: the Asian Champions League. On the opening day of the competition, Count signed 1-1 against Pakhtakor, who continued to make a fortress of his stadium and ended up taking all three points.In a game marked by rain, Pakhtakor opened the scoring at 18 minutes thanks to a great shot by Masharipov from outside the area. The Uzbeks left winning the break, but after the resumption Pedro Conde was responsible for signing the tie. The Spaniard took advantage of the conditions of the pitch – the ball was stuck in the rain – to release his scoring account with Al Ahli, current UAE League champion. The joy, however, did not last long on the Emirati side, since it took Pakhtakor only three minutes to get back on the scoreboard. He did it thanks to Serbian Dragan Ceran, who finished off a ball hung by Khamdanov to the heart of the area.It was like that, with the 2-1 campaigning on the scoreboard, as the match ended at Pakhtakor Markaziyy in Tashkent. Pakhtakor, which has six consecutive victories at home in the Champions League, thus became the first Group B team to achieve a victory. Shabab Al Ahli will seek to release his locker next week, when he will receive the current champion, Al Hilal, in Dubai.last_img read more

Top stories Imaging atoms digging for diamonds and oxygen in space

first_imgElectron microscopes close to imaging individual atomsJust like digital cameras, machines called cryo-electron microscopes (cryo-EMs) are getting better and better at taking pictures. Researchers report that they’ve created a cryo-EM image so sharp that it rivals images produced by x-ray crystallography, the gold standard for mapping the atomic contours of proteins. These new images will likely dramatically advance drugmakers’ attempts to make new medicines. Rare African plant signals diamonds beneath the soil Email Country * Afghanistan Aland Islands Albania Algeria Andorra Angola Anguilla Antarctica Antigua and Barbuda Argentina Armenia Aruba Australia Austria Azerbaijan Bahamas Bahrain Bangladesh Barbados Belarus Belgium Belize Benin Bermuda Bhutan Bolivia, Plurinational State of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba Bosnia and Herzegovina Botswana Bouvet Island Brazil British Indian Ocean Territory Brunei Darussalam Bulgaria Burkina Faso Burundi Cambodia Cameroon Canada Cape Verde Cayman Islands Central African Republic Chad Chile China Christmas Island Cocos (Keeling) Islands Colombia Comoros Congo Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Cook Islands Costa Rica Cote d’Ivoire Croatia Cuba Curaçao Cyprus Czech Republic Denmark Djibouti Dominica Dominican Republic Ecuador Egypt El Salvador Equatorial Guinea Eritrea Estonia Ethiopia Falkland Islands (Malvinas) Faroe Islands Fiji Finland France French Guiana French Polynesia French Southern Territories Gabon Gambia Georgia Germany Ghana Gibraltar Greece Greenland Grenada Guadeloupe Guatemala Guernsey Guinea Guinea-Bissau Guyana Haiti Heard Island and McDonald Islands Holy See (Vatican City State) Honduras Hungary Iceland India Indonesia Iran, Islamic Republic of Iraq Ireland Isle of Man Israel Italy Jamaica Japan Jersey Jordan Kazakhstan Kenya Kiribati Korea, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Republic of Kuwait Kyrgyzstan Lao People’s Democratic Republic Latvia Lebanon Lesotho Liberia Libyan Arab Jamahiriya Liechtenstein Lithuania Luxembourg Macao Macedonia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Madagascar Malawi Malaysia Maldives Mali Malta Martinique Mauritania Mauritius Mayotte Mexico Moldova, Republic of Monaco Mongolia Montenegro Montserrat Morocco Mozambique Myanmar Namibia Nauru Nepal Netherlands New Caledonia New Zealand Nicaragua Niger Nigeria Niue Norfolk Island Norway Oman Pakistan Palestine Panama Papua New Guinea Paraguay Peru Philippines Pitcairn Poland Portugal Qatar Reunion Romania Russian Federation Rwanda Saint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha Saint Kitts and Nevis Saint Lucia Saint Martin (French part) Saint Pierre and Miquelon Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Samoa San Marino Sao Tome and Principe Saudi Arabia Senegal Serbia Seychelles Sierra Leone Singapore Sint Maarten (Dutch part) Slovakia Slovenia Solomon Islands Somalia South Africa South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands South Sudan Spain Sri Lanka Sudan Suriname Svalbard and Jan Mayen Swaziland Sweden Switzerland Syrian Arab Republic Taiwan Tajikistan Tanzania, United Republic of Thailand Timor-Leste Togo Tokelau Tonga Trinidad and Tobago Tunisia Turkey Turkmenistan Turks and Caicos Islands Tuvalu Uganda Ukraine United Arab Emirates United Kingdom United States Uruguay Uzbekistan Vanuatu Venezuela, Bolivarian Republic of Vietnam Virgin Islands, British Wallis and Futuna Western Sahara Yemen Zambia Zimbabwe A geologist has discovered a plant that seems to grow only on top of kimberlite pipes—columns of volcanic rock that often contain diamonds. If the plant is as choosy as it seems to be, diamond hunters in West Africa will now have a simple, powerful way of finding diamond-rich deposits.What your smile says about where you’re fromIf you come from a country of immigrants, you’re more likely to crack a friendly smile on the street. That’s the conclusion of a new study, which may explain why Americans beam more than their Chinese and Russian counterparts.Why there is so little breathable oxygen in spaceYou breathe it every minute, but there’s hardly any molecular oxygen in space. Now, a new experiment has finally revealed why: because oxygen atoms cling tightly to stardust, preventing them from joining together to form oxygen molecules.Embattled Max Planck neuroscientist quits primate researchA neuroscientist who has been the target of animal rights activists says he is giving up on primate research. In a letter last week to fellow primate researchers, Nikos Logothetis cites a lack of support from colleagues and the wider scientific community as key factors in his decision.center_img Sign up for our daily newsletter Get more great content like this delivered right to you!
