The winner will play against whoever wins between Malmo and Mol Vidi.
It was more difficult that it seemed for Celtic to win Rosenborg the previous round. They won 3-1 in Celtic Park with an overturning. In the second match they didn't perform well and they had a bore draw in Norway. Scottish team's Brendan Rodgers increase the tempo, taking advantage of their 'hot' home. They won 3-1 Livingston with the goals of Rogic and Nitcham (2) in Championship for the first round last Saturday. They will try to qualify since the return match in Athens won't be easy. Dembele and Bitton won't play due to injure while Ajer because of cards.
The Greek Champion AEK play in qualifiers. This will be their first official game of the year. They made some changes in the team but fulfiled the gaps with players expected to star in. In the last friendly game, Marinos Ouzounidis team won 3-2 Turkey's Champion Galatasaray with the goals of Livaja, Bakaseta and Mandalos in OAKA. Team's chief Petros Mandalos won't play due to last minute's injure and he is doing his best for the return match. Ouzounidis is based in set piece, defensive and offensive for the games against Celtic..
Celtic are in a better racing level for sure, since they started their preparation a long time ago and they have already played five official games apart from the friendly ones. But they can't absolutely convince us yet. AEK have performed well in friendly games but they haven't played any official one yet. However I believe they can get a positive result.
