    Welcome.

    Incase you didn't know the loser of this tie goes directly into the 3rd round draw for the europa league which, if we win of course, is an added bonus to yourselfs.

    Just looked at their stadium and it's a big pitch..

    The sheep went and pumped the side that finished third in their league away from home last year or year before..

    Should have the tie done before the second leg. Another good thing is this team isn't halfway through their league which I'm sure Alashkert were last season at this stage?

    Looks like Atalanta took their foot off the gas at 2-0 and were punished for it.

    Based on the match stats and the 8-0 battering in the 2nd leg :giggle1:

    Just saw that. This is the best possible option then.
    Anyways, good luck and hopefully you will receive the best hospitality Sarajevo can provide!

    As for Atalanta, the 2-2 score was amazing, but if you go into details of the 2nd leg, you will find that the goalkeeper had a dispute with the fans and showed the middle finger which angered the crowd. Either he wasn't even trying at that point, or had immense pressure. It's an embarrassing result, but it was not realistic in any way...Not much of an excuse, but that game was weird.

    Really felt these were the trickiest potential opposition of the 5 options.
    A clean sheet win in the first leg would be nice. No resting of any of our core team in this one either, our guys with massive appearances from last year will be straight back into it.

    When Ferencvaros opened their new stadium, they played Chelsea in a preseason friendly and I was at the game. Saw a couple of folk wearing Celtic tops in the home end at that game and around Budapest.

    I will also like to wish you all a warm welcome to our beatiful country. We have a huge respect towards your football and your fans, which I consider the best on the entire island, especially because of your support for Palestine!
    I know you're going to have a great time down here, and I also hope we'll get to drink a couple of beers together
    P.S. my two all-time favourite Celtic players are Henrik Larsson and Shunsuke Nakamura! :)

    CELTIC will take on FK Sarajevo of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the UEFA Champions League first qualifying round following today's draw in Nyon, Switzerland.

    Scotland’s Treble Treble champions face four qualifying rounds, with Neil Lennon’s side facing the Bosnian and Herzegovinian champions in their first tie.

    The first leg is scheduled for Tuesday/Wednesday, July 9/10 with the return leg a week later on Tuesday/Wednesday, July 16/17.

    This is the first time Celtic have ever played a team from the Bosnian and Herzegovinian Premier League in competitive action.

    It is a traditional team that used to be very good in Yoguslavian times. There is probably going to be a very good atmosphere there. It is the last part of Yoguslavia I haven't visited, it is a pity I am buried in work in July otherwise I would really try to be there.
