Celtic Fans Very Wary of Potential Rematch with Rosenborg in Champions League Qualifiers

Celtic Fans Very Wary of Potential Rematch with Rosenborg in Champions League Qualifiers

Celtic know their Champions League qualification first-round fate, with a clash against Armenian champions Alashkert kicking off their European campaign – but a match with Norwegian cracks Rosenborg lying in wait in the second-round.

As we’ve told you previously, the Hoops are being forced to play a whopping four two-legged ties in their bid to reach the Champions League group stages for the third consecutive seasons, and it seems the opponents aren’t getting any easy for Brendan Rodgers’ side.

Should they beat Alashkert, Celtic will come up against either Rosenborg or Icelandic champions Valur, with the Norwegians heave favourites to progress.

Celtic managed to beat Rosenborg over two ties last summer, but the 1-0 aggregate score was too close to call for a lot of supporters – and there’s plenty who would’ve rather had a much easier second-round opponent:

Should Rodgers and the club’s fans be really concerned at the prospect of facing such a big name so early in qualification?

What do you think?
