As we broke the news last night Celtic will be in pot one for today’s Europa League draw, here is how everything stands for the midday event.
Celtic take their place alongside Arsenal, Tottenham, Napoli and Benfica to name a few and are at the top table thanks to some pretty crazy results going for the Scottish champions.
Pot one doesn’t guarantee you a safe group and there are plenty of problematic ties in every logos year. The big one for many is Leicester being in pot 2, I think some of our supporters want a crack at the English side. As always, no club can draw someone from their own league so our city rivals will avoid us in today’s draw.
Celtic topped their Europa group last term which had Lazio, Rennes and Cluj all fighting to get to the knockout stage. There were some memorable results and performances before we went out to an underwhelming Copenhagen side. Let’s hope we can go further this time around.
