UEFA Champions League qualifier


Celtic will face AEK Athens in their 3rd qualifying round for the UEFA Champions League after the dispatching of Rosenborg in Trondheim on Wednesday night. The Hoops took an aggregate lead of 3-1 to Norway thanks to a double from Edouard and a sublime finish by Ntcham at Parkhead, after Rosenborg had taken an early lead through Meling.

It was Meling who appeared to be causing the Hoops some discomfort once again, particularly in the first half as James...

0-3

Edouard (45'+1), Forrest (81'), McGregor (90')
Yesterday evening, Brendan Rodgers' Celtic returned to competitive action for the 2018/19 campaign against Armenian champions Alashkert FC, in the first round of qualifying for the Champions League Group Stages. With every season that passes, it seems as though the summer football break is getting shorter and shorter for the Celtic players. This is of course great for us fans, but surely places extra pressure upon the players to keep themselves fit throughout this long and challenging season that lays ahead.

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FIRST QUALIFYING ROUND DRAW


The draw for first qualifying rounds of the 2018/19 Champions League took place today at UEFA headquarters in Nyon. Celtic were drawn against Alashkert of Armenia, and are due to play the away leg in Yerevan on 10/11 July, with the home tie in Glasgow due for 17/18 July.

Celtic fans may remember the name of Alashkert, as they famously dumped out St Johnstone of Europa League qualification in 2015/16, their first time reaching the first round qualification stage. However, Alashkert have never got past the second qualifying phase, and Celtic will look to impose their experience of the last 2 successful campaigns to overcome the Armenian champions.
