CELTIC drop into the Europa League play-off now and will have the chance to qualify for the group stage of the competition.
While the Europa is treated as a second-rate competition and fans won’t be enthused at this moment in time about the prospect of a run in the tournament – it’s worth noting that should Celtic get there, investment will be needed in order for Celtic to be competitive.
Here is a list of the teams already confirmed for the group stage.
As you can see there are some mouthwatering ties that could happen.
Some really hard games in store should Celtic manage to get into the group stage. Of course, Celtic may miss some of these teams, depending on how the club is seeded but the reality is – if Celtic don’t invest we could come up very short in a ‘second rate competition’.
