Celtic have to make sure they get past Sarajevo and we must stress we are NOT looking past the game by reporting the following.
If we do manage to beat Sarajevo, resident Euro guru Moravcik67_ has shown us what the pots could look like for Friday’s draw if we get there.
What’s interesting, depending on who qualifies this week, Celtic are likely to be in pot 2 BUT they have a slim chance of making it to Pot 1 which would be a surprise.

The bhoys topped their Europa League group last term and if they do get into the group stage they can prop up the club’s coffers with £2m for making it and a potential win and draw bonus in the six games they would play.
All eyes are on Celtic’s squad for the game on Thursday, season ticket holders will be able to watch the game for no extra cost on the season pass.
