Portuguese Europa League final

Portuguese Europa League final. 44253.jpegSC Braga v. FC Porto, two clubs from the north of Portugal, are to dispute the Europa League Final in Dublin, Ireland on May 18. Braga beat Benfica (also Portugal) 1-0 and FC Porto beat Spain's Villarreal 7-4 over two legs, despite losing tonight in Spain 3-2. One thing is certain: hail the new era of Braga coach Domingos Paciência.

Domingos Paciência was a star forward player for FC Porto, a club where he learnt the ropes...and how. He has guided Sporting de Braga, also in northern Portugal, to a third/fourth spot in the Portuguese league and their first ever final of a UEFA competition. After losing 2-1 at Benfica (Lisbon) last week, SC Braga won tonight 1-0, with a 19' minute goal from Custódio. Aggregate 2-2, Braga win on away goals.

FC Porto 7 - Villarreal 4 (two legs)

Tonight at the El Madrigal Stadium, Spanish side Villarreal beat FC Porto 3-2 (Cani, 17; Capdevilla, 75; Rossi 80 penalty; Hulk, 39; Falcao, 48). Falcao established a record with his sixteenth goal of the competition.

In Dublin, two of Europe's best young coaches will be confronting each other - Braga's Domingos Paciência and Porto's André Villas-Boas, both products of FC Porto.

In recent years, genetics has become a cutting-edge science, not only in the professional field of biology, but also because of the enormous social reach of its discoveries and approaches. Not in vain, practically every day the press offers us the discovery of a new gene, a new hereditary determinant directly involved in the manifestation of diseases or physical characteristics.
