From Italy to Russia – Europa League Draw Will Be Interesting

Celtic will learn their Europa League fate this afternoon when the last 32 draw is made.

In among the teams Celtic could face there are some mouth watering ties, like a battle of Britain against Everton or an Italian affair against familiar foes Inter Milan. There is also scope for a very controversial re-match against Legia Warsaw who Celtic put out of the Champions League qualifiers on a technicality, the Polish side would love to have a go at Celtic but I would like to think our players would like a chance at on-field redemption if the tie was made.

Also in the mix are some very technically proficient teams such as Sporting Lisbon and Napoli. Sporting are fantastic at going forward but have been found wanting in defensive areas this season so that could be a high scoring affair.

The traveling Celtic support could find themselves off to Russia to see the likes of Zenit St Petersburg or Dynamo Moscow go up against Celtic for a place in the last 16. But maybe some are hoping for a draw just a little closer to home.

Whatever the draw brings it will be interesting to see how the board back the manager and the team going forward. There is potential to go further in this competition but maybe not the exact squad we have at the minute,

Celtic will have John Guidetti to call upon for the first time in Europe, presuming he stays through the January window which he is fully expected to.

Here are all the teams Celtic could face in the last 32 clash:
