Celtic News and Form
Celtic are undefeated in 13 home UEFA qualifiers so that is a positive start to kick things off with for them. In that spell, they are W11 D3 in such fixtures at Celtic Park. The Hoops did concede the first goal of the first leg of this tie but fought their way back to rack up the away goals in a 3-1 win. Celtic responded with goals from Michael Johnston, Odsonne Edouard and Scott Sinclar, who put the icing on the cake five minutes from time. Celtic handled themselves pretty well in what was an intimidating atmosphere. Falling behind looked to actually help them settle into their groove a bit. In last year’s first qualifying round Celtic collected a 6-0 aggregate win over FC Alashkert. They went on to bow out in the third qualifying round to AEK Athens.

Sarajevo News and Form
Sarajevo will have been pretty happy with their start in the first fifteen minutes of the match. That was when they were at their best, but when they conceded the equaliser it was when the tide turned. They simply sat back and looked to play on the counter-attack. This is their first appearance in the qualifying rounds of the Champions League since 2015 when they lost in the second qualifying round against Lech Poznan 3-0 on aggregate. Last season they started their European campaign in the first qualifying round of the Europa League. They beat Banants but then in the second qualifying road they lost 10-2 on aggregate against Atalanta. The loser of the tie will go to the Europa League third qualifying round. No Bosnian side have ever managed to reach the group stage of a UEFA competition.

Celtic were comfortable in the end in the first leg and this as a contest should be pretty much over. Sarajevo were not a threat after the first fifteen minutes of the match and it should get a bit more difficult for them in Glasgow. Celtic to win to nil.
