    Celtic's UEFA Europa League group-stage opponents

    By: Newsroom Staff on 31 Aug, 2018 12:09

  • CELTIC will face FC Salzburg, RB Leipzig and Rosenborg in Group B of the UEFA Europa League following today's draw in Monaco.

    Brendan Rodgers' side booked their place in this stage of the tournament with a 4-1 aggregate victory over Lithuanian side, FK Suduva, and will now look forward to European football until at least Christmas.

    The Hoops will face reigning Austrian champions, FC Salzburg, who reached the semi-final of the competition before they were knocked out by Marseille. The sides had previously met in the same competition back in 2014. The game in Austria was a 2-2 draw, although Salzburg won 3-1 at Celtic Park. 

    RB Leipzig were also knocked out of last season's UEFA Europa League by Marseille, at the quarter-final stage. They finished sixth in last season's Bundesliga, and this will be the first time they have faced Celtic.

    Rosenborg, of course, are familiar foes, and the sides have already met this season, in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League. Celtic won the home leg 3-1, with the return in Norway finishing goal-less.

    Further information on the group-stage fixtures to follow.
