CELTIC MAY FACE GREEK CHAMPS

0

CELTIC will face AEK Athens in the third qualifying round of the Champions League – if they overcome Rosenborg.

Brendan Rodgers’ side face the Norwegians in the first leg at Parkhead on Wednesday, with the return tie in Trondheim seven days later.

AEK Athens won the Greek Super League for the 12th time last season.

They were knocked out of Champions League qualifying in the third round stage last season by CSKA Moscow.

The Greek side went on to compete in the Europa League group stages, qualifying from a section that included AC Milan, Austria Vienna and Rijeka, before losing in the round of 32 to Kiev Dynamo.

AEK, who are managed by Marinos Ouzounidis, have faced Rangers, Dundee United and Hearts in past European ties, but this could be their first against Celtic.
