    Know * all about the teams, sounds like none of them are any mugs and none are world beaters either. Hope it's Dundalk just for the party atmosphere and the fantastic day out for the fans.

    I'd say Dundalk are probably at the level of St Johnstone. Make no mistake about it, they are who we're hoping for.

    I watched parts oft the dundalk game and tell from hat I have seen that Astana is better then them. Dundalks chance to qualify for the biggest stage oft football shouldnt be forgetten though, they have nothing to lose.

    We need to avoid that Ludogorets team badly, that's who I fear the most in this draw. They've been to Group Stages before and are a very solid team both home and away can always get goals.

    Dundalk is the obvious team I'd like.

    It's crucial though that we get that second leg back at our home ground, that's always a major advantage imo.

    Don't think anybody would be foolish enough to take a CL play off for granted

    We will draw Zagreb or Copenhagen. Worst possible teams to face.

    Only team i fancy us against is Dundalk.

    We havnt been in the CL for years and to be honest we are not exactly up to much either... I just feel a Danish team will be harder to beat than a Bulgarian or Croatian team.. They are a few games into their season and seem to be cruising... They are the team I would want to avoid.

    For me I'd want Dundalk and then lump the other 4 teams together. Many on here are saying Hapoel but I read an article last season about them when they were going for their 1st title in 40 years. They were likened to Leicester - not one of the big boys, smaller budget, no real huge stars but a real collective Team. They are a highly ambitious Club as is their owner, Alona Barkat , one of the few women owners in football - loads of info on Internet about her/Hapoel - and with the travel, temperatures, next to Zagreb this would not be my choice.

    Lets not get carried away here. Dundalk is my local team but celtic should win this tie comfortably. Number 11 looked sharp when he came on and the other small winger looked good but apart from that nothing that should scare us. Bate has seriously regressed since beating munich so i wouldnt look into it that much. I seen bate last year when they beat dundalk and they were very average then aswell.

    Would be a great tie for me personally. There would be alot of confused dundalk supporters not knowing who to cheer for.

    Id hate to see us knock Dundalk out... If you were a Dundalk and Celtic fan it would be a tough one.. A proper Dundalk fan that attends their games will be cheering Dundalk, no doubts there... Any Neutrals in Ireland or LOI fans will also be cheering Dundalk..
