      Champions League qualifying: Celtic play Linfield or SP La Fiorita, The New Saints face Europa

      Celtic will play Northern Irish champions Linfield or San Marino's SP La Fiorita in the second qualifying round of the Champions League.

      Belfast's Linfield and SP La Fiorita will play in the first qualifying round with the winners taking on Brendan Rodgers' treble winners, who were seeded in the draw in Nyon.

      Celtic will play away from home first.

      Also entering in the first round are Welsh side The New Saints, who will play Gibraltar's Europa.

      Celtic were seeded in Group Three, along with Poland's Legia Warsaw, Maribor of Slovenia, Swedish outfit Malmo, Rosenborg of Norway and Iceland's Hafnarfjordur.

      The first qualifying round first-leg ties will be on 27 or 28 June with the return legs on 4 or 5 July. The dates for the second qualifying round ties are 11/12 July and 18/19 July.

      Last season, Celtic came through the second and third qualifying rounds, and then the play-off round, to reach the group stage, finishing bottom of their section.

      Anyone watching Nice - Napoli? I like that Saint-Maximin lad on the left wing. It's only the second time I see him play of course, but I like him. He also has that huge burst of pace which he uses to just breeze past players like Mane does. Dribbles well and looks a threat whenever he gets on the ball. He's still very young and raw, but he's obviously a talented player.

      Yeah, he looks good, was decent in the first leg too, but very raw. Also, Seri... I don't get the hype.

      Yes, very raw. Still only 20 years old though. Imagine him working under someone like Klopp. Think it's hard to really judge any of the Nice players on their games against Napoli. Napoli looks brilliant. They press high and very well, quick and good combination play with Insigne, Mertens, Hamsik and Callejon. Great team to watch.

      Watched the end, bizarrely, of the Maribor game.  Was a good finish with the Beer club going all out against them and then they ended up conceding.

      As for tomorrow - interesting that Celtic finishing in the third pot or the fourth pot of seeds depends on LFC getting knocked out!

      Hahaha, yeah, same! As much as I dislike Barca, Messi is still the best, and Juventus has a damn good attack too. Will be a far better game imo.
