CELTIC will face KR Reykjavik in the first round of the Champions League later this month but it’s not the first time the two clubs have met. Back in 2014, the bhoys won their tie against the Icelandic side 5-0 on aggregate thanks to goals from Callum McGregor, Virgil van Dijk and Teemu Pukki.

The game was at Murrayfield.

This is Champions League qualifiers with a difference this year though. There will NOT be two legs and Celtic have been drawn at home for the tie.

An empty Celtic Park SHOULD host the tie but because of how fragile the pandemic is, there are no guarantees at this point if it will 100% go ahead in Glasgow. There could be a fixture reversal or neutral ground chosen if Scotland or more specifically Glasgow is off bounds around the time of the fixture.

The game is set to be played on the 18/19th August and will see either club advance to the next round of qualifiers.

The draw for the second round will take place on Monday.
