My thought on looking at our potential opponents this morning was ‘Anywhere but Warsaw’. Our man Zbyszek tells me Legia were awful in the first leg in Warsaw against St Pat’s, where they drew 1-1 courtesy of a late goal, but we’ve been there. Henrik Larsson & Co. drew 0-0 against St Pat’s at Celtic Park before winning 0-2 in the return leg. St Patrick’s have a big job ahead if they are to progress.
A trip to Ireland on Champions League qualification duty for the second year running would suit Celtic, especially our Irish-based supporters, but my money is on a more testing trip to Poland; Ronny’s pulse should have quickened on the news.
Zbyszek doesn’t reckon have what it takes to eliminate Celtic. All being equal, that may be the case, but summer football will be unpredictable for both clubs.
I am, of course, being completely disrespectful to KR Reykjavik, who we annihilate next week.[calameo code=000390171ae033f39a0c4 lang=en page=120 hidelinks=1 width=100% height=500]
