Celtic’s Potential Opponents in Champions League Third Qualifying Round Revealed

Celtic’s Potential Opponents in Champions League Third Qualifying Round Revealed

Celtic will learn their potential fate in tomorrow’s Champions League third qualifying round draw, with several tricky-looking ties looming on the horizon.

The Hoops will continue their quest to reach the group stages of the competition when they take on Estonian side Nomme Kalju in the second qualifying round first-leg on Wednesday night, and are fully expected to progress to the next phase.

But the third qualifying round looks a bit tougher, with the Greek champions PAOK a potential opponent, and so too are Slovenian champs Maribor, who defeated Ronny Deila’s Celtic team 2-1 on aggregate over two legs back in 2014:

Perhaps the most daunting possible opponent are Serbian champions Crvena zvezda, more commonly known in the UK as Red Star Belgrade, who you’d fancy to see off Finnish title holders HJK Helsinki.

Neil Lennon’s side will be seeded for the draw, which should work in their favour, and they’ll discover who they might be squaring off against at around 11am UK time on Monday morning.

But who would you want to face?
