Celtic’s Europa League play-off opponents, FK Sarajevo have been handed a boost ahead of the tie that is set to take place next Thursday.

The Bosnian side have had their weekend derby game against, Zeljeznicar cancelled in order to give them more time to prepare for the crucial tie next week, as reported by the Scottish Sun.

Many have critisised the SFA in the past for not helping Scottish sides, have enough time to prepare for European fixtures and the Bosnian FA appear to have no hesitation of doing the exact opposte, cancelling Monday’s fixture the day after Sarajevo advanced to face the hoops.

Sarajevo will be a familar name to fans, as Neil Lennon’s side faced off against them in the first round of last season’s Champions League qualifers.

The Celts came out on top over both legs, winning 3-1 away from home before finishing the tie off with a 2-1 win at Celtic Park.

Despite a good recent history against the Bosnian side, this play-off tie is expected to be a tough one and with Sarajevo now being given an extra few days to prepare, it may have become just a little bit tougher.
