Well, the first qualifying rounds have been drawn and there's a couple of interesting ties. TNS play Europa in a sort of all British tie, and if Linfield overcome their first round opponents they get to play Celtic in the next round which would be a great game. Dundalk will hope for another good run but face a tricky tie against Rosenborg.

Draw in full:

Champions League first qualifying round

Vikingur (Faroe Isles) v Trepca '89 (Kosovo)

Hibernians (Malta) v Tallinn (Estonia)

Alashkert (Armenia) v Santa Coloma (Andorra)

The New Saints v Europa (Gibraltar)

Linfield v SP La Fiorita (San Marino)

Champions League second qualifying round

Group 1

Apoel (Cyprus) v Dudelange (Luxembourg)

Zalgiris (Lithuania) v Ludogorets Razgrad (Bulgaria)

Qarabag (Azerbaijan) v Samtredia (Georgia)

Partizan (Serbia) v Budućnost Podgorica (Montenegro)

Hibernians (Malta) or FCI Tallinn (Estonia) v Salzburg (Austria)

Group 2

Sheriff (Moldova) v Kukes (Albania)

Astana (Kazakhstan) v Spartaks Jurmala (Latvia)

BATE Borisov (Belarus) v Alashkert (Armenia) or FC Santa Coloma (Andorra)

Zilina (Slovakia) v Copenhagen (Denamrk)

Hapoel Beer-Sheva (Israel) v Budapest Honvéd (Hungary)

Rijeka (Croatia) v The New Saints or Europa (Gibraltar)

Group 3

Malmo (Sweden) v Vardar (Macedonia)

Zrinjski (Bosnia and Herzegovina) v Maribor (Slovenia)

Dundalk (Ireland) v Rosenborg (Norway)

FH Hafnarfjördur (Iceland) v Víkingur (Faroe Islands) or Trepça '89 (Kosovo)

Linfield or SP La Fiorita (San Marino) v Celtic

IFK Mariehamn (Finland) v Legia Warszawa (Poland)

I'm assuming Linfield vs Celtic on 12th July will be moved should Linfield make it to the second round.

It'll probably be played on the 11th night but even then it should perhaps be moved for the week after.

There's talk of a 5pm or 5:30pm kick off on the 11th but would that not be up to UEFA, both clubs agreeing and the police?

Why are they trying to move the game exactly? I'm lost?


Religion essentially. July 12th in Belfast is Orangemen's Day aka a Protestant celebration, majority of Glasgow Celtic fans would be Catholic.

The day before is probably just as 'dangerous', it's the day that the knuckle dragging scum go out, get wankered and light their bon-fires.
The potential Linfield/Celtic game will be played on Friday, July 14th.

What have Prestoners got to do with it?

Turns out there won't be any Celtic fans there officially anyway...

Definitely not officially.

An absolute joke Celtic withholding tickets for 'safety' concerns, my mortage is on Lawell not wanting our 'good reputation' tarnished over there and that's the main reason why they're withholding the tickets.
So, a couple of first leg fixtures played already.

TNS fell to a disappointing defeat against Gibraltan side Europa, losing 2-1 at home. The highlights are on the BBC for people in Britain.

Elsewhere, Linfield scored late on to snatch a 1-0 victory and give them the advantage. Can't help but feel there are a lot of police hoping they lose the second leg!
