    The draw for the 1st rd and 2nd rd of the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League takes place 3 weeks today on Monday 19th June.
    Celtic are top seeds in the 2nd rd with just 2 matches to play in the Polish and Moldovan leagues.
    One of those looks like ourold friends Legia Warsaw will qualify and join us in seeded section.
    Our 1st match will k/o on either 11th or 12th July 2017.



    Here is the current UEFA CL set up on wiki

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017–18_UEFA_Champions_League

    It looks like we will be seeded all the way until we reach the Group stages

    Looking forward to booking CL Final tickets in NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium Kiev

    Aye so we are seeded and then it is split into pots of 5 seeded and unseeded so there is a draw before the draws if that makes sense

    What the chances of getting third pot in champions league now if we qualify. Does Man U winning europa kill any hope we had.

    I think it's three teams with a higher coefficient than us have to be knocked out at the play-off stage, I know one of them is Ajax and I think a Greek team, but it's basically impossible.

    CL round of 16 Celtic v Liverpool would be amazing, but getting them in the group would be *. They are pot 3.

    We need 3 of Sevilla, Liverpool, Napoli, Dynamo Kyiv, Ajax or Olympiakos to lose in qualifying in order to get Pot 3. They'll all be seeded through the qualifiers.

    If anything comes of the Leipzig/Salzburg situation, it might reduce that to 2 of them.

    I really * hate the play offs

    So much at stake and so much pressure.
    We really need to be in the group stages,
    No way can we get any tougher than last year

    As always, just want a draw with no drama, nice local
    trip for our support, cheap away day, nice city.

    Just get us in the group stage please

    Here we go again...we're on the road again.


    First time in year's I've been relatively confident going into these. Very difficult but last year we were given a really hard draw looking back in the 3rd and play-off round, and our team was nowhere near the level then that it is now. If we turn up and play our game we should give anyone a go here.
