(CIIE) First China******
SHANGHAI, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- On Friday morning, the first "Jinbo" China-Europe freight train arrived in Shanghai, marking the first time for exhibits of the China International Import Expo (CIIE) to be sent by the freight train to the municipality.
A total of 35 containers with goods weighing about 460 tonnes were first concentrated from Hamburg and Duisburg in Germany to Malaszewicze in Poland and then were carried by the freight train which entered China via Alataw Pass, a major rail port in Xinjiang, to Shanghai.
"Jinbo" is short for CIIE in Chinese. The exhibits on display at the upcoming 4th CIIE include intelligent vacuum--jetting-flushing combination systems and electrical machinery parts. The exhibits and the freight train were all disinfected and checked before entering China to meet the expo's anti-epidemic prevention and control guidelines.
It only took about half of the shipping time to transport the goods to the destination by the China-Europe freight train, according to Wang Jinqiu, chairman of the train's operating company.
The "Shanghai Express," Shanghai's first China-Europe freight train, departed from the city in September, marking the first cross-border railway service between Shanghai and Europe. To date, four China-Europe freight trains have left from Shanghai to Hamburg, Germany. Enditem

Leipzig clinch 2******
BERLIN, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- Leipzig sealed the third place in Group A and booked its berth for the Europa League after goals from Dominik Szoboszlai and Andre Silva helped the "Red Bulls" to edge Manchester City 2-1 in the final round of the Champions League's group stage on Tuesday.。
Both sides staged well-positioned defences from the kick-off hence goal scoring opportunities were at premium in the opening period.。
Leipzig's Konrad Laimer and City's Kevin De Bruyne produced the first half-chances before Jack Grealish pulled wide from promising position to waste a good chance for the visitors in the 22nd minute.。
The hosts showed a clinical chance conversion at the other end of the green, as Laimer's perfectly timed through ball was sent to Szoboszlai, who rounded goalkeeper Zackary Steffen before finishing the job into the empty goal with 24 minutes played.。
Leipzig almost doubled its advantage two minutes later, but Steffen was on guard and defused Emil Forsberg's dangerous effort from 12 meters.。
The hosts continued on the front foot and should have extended the lead, but Steffen was equal to Silva's header in the 39th minute.。
Manchester City sparked to life before the half time as Peter Gulacsi had to tip Phil Foden's hammer to the post before the Leipzig goalkeeper neutralized De Bruyne's free kick in the closing stages of the first half.。
After the restart, City assumed control and dominated possession but for all that the visitors couldn't do damage to Leipzig's bulwark.。
To make things worse for the visitors, passive Leipzig doubled its advantage against the flow of the game as Silva benefitted on a counterattack via Forsberg to beat Steffen with a well-placed low shot in the 71st minute.。
It was a short-lived joy for the hosts though as the "Sky Blues" halved the deficit after Oleksandr Zinchenko's cross fed Riyad Mahrez, whose diving header caught Gulacsi on the wrong foot in the 77th minute.。
City's comeback hopes suffered a heavy setback in the 83rd minute when Kyle Walker was sent off with a straight red card following a rude foul play on Silva.。
The visitors pushed forward despite their numerical disadvantage, but Leipzig's defence stood firm and secured all three points on home soil.。
With the result, Manchester City top Group A with 12 points whereas Leipzig finish on the 3rd spot to continue in the Europa League.。
"I am very thankful that the team eventually showed a reaction after the last poor performances in the league. We expected a reaction, but we are happy about the win. I hope we can take the momentum into Saturday's clash with Monchengladbach," Leipzig chairman Oliver Mintzlaff said. Enditem。
