Celtic News and Form
Scottish Champions Celtic get their first taste of competitive action for the summer. The club decided to keep on Neil Lennon last season after he came in late into the term, following the departure of Brendan Rodgers to Leicester. Lennon also guided them to the FA Cup title. Naturally, there is going to be a bit of rust in the ranks and this isn’t likely to be a full strength team sent out. This could be a tricky little first away leg though if they underestimate their opponents. It’s not often that a really easy way game in Europe will happen.
Sarajevo News and Form
Sarajevo are the national champions. They won the Bosnian league by five points last season. This isn’t their first taste of Champions League football. Prior to this season, their most recent appearance was in the 2015/16 second qualifying round where they lost 3-0 on aggregate to Lech Poznan. In the 2007/08 season, they did get through the first two qualifying round before losing to Dynamo Kyiv in the third. Sarajevo’s record in the Europan Cup/Champions League is W2 D2 L8 having scored 19 and conceded 19 goals. They have lost each of their last four games in the competition (all qualifiers).
