Pedro 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.
WEATHER forecasters say there is now an increasing chance of Christmas snow in Donegal – with weather models now pointing to a possible blizzard.And it could arrive on Christmas Day…though we should know more in the next 24 to 48 hours, say the forecasters.“The leading European model has just made a dramatic shift towards extreme winter conditions on its maps for the period late Christmas Day to 27th and beyond,” said Peter O’Donnell at Irish Weather Online. “Other models are trending somewhat vaguely in that general direction too. It is yet too early to be definitive but we all need to be on high alert if this trend continues in later model runs today and tomorrow,” he said.On the forecast for next Thursday, he said: “The latest output from the leading European model shows extreme wintry weather sweeping into Ireland from the northwest behind a rapidly deepening low.“If correct, this would bring strong winds and a rapid shift from rain to snow. Temperatures would be likely to start out around 5 or 6 C and then slide down towards -2 C by the 26th and 27th with colder readings possible if snow cover develops.“Wind gusts to at least 90 km/hr are possible from west to northwest once the system moves across Ireland (no strong winds are indicated ahead of it in the mild sector). “It is difficult to assess the confidence level on this outcome, other models would indicate a more restrained colder trend with some snow and moderate winds.” SHOCK NEW DONEGAL CHRISTMAS SNOW WARNING FROM FORECASTERS was last modified: December 17th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegaldonegal daily weatherforecastsnowWarningweather
