As Champions League draws go this wasn’t as bad as it could have been, at least not for Celtic.
We have seen a lot of hypothetical groups thrown up over the last few weeks and this is one that we will settle for.
It would appear that current European Champions Real will not fear any, the good news is even if we should fail against them we can rely on them taking points off the other teams leaving it as fight for both 2nd and 3rd spot.
Leipzig are a fickle team full of mercenaries and whilst a quality team by no means unbeatable.
Shaktar play at Kyiv’s stadium due to the war which will be considerably less daunting than if we were in the Donbass.
On the other hand Sevco will be able to have a love in with Ajax where they will likely batter each other regardless.
Liverpool and Napoli will be extremely hard fixtures as well, the first will no doubt be dubbed the battle of Britain, I look forward to hearing the Liverpool fans boo GSTQ when the deluded belt it out.
Tonight Hearts are in action hoping to play in the Europa League, if they fail they will fall into the Conference, regardless of seeing the Shame in the same competition as us, let alone their capital cousins, the fact 3 Scottish teams are playing in Europe this year will likely mean that the winner of this years Premiership will almost undoubtedly qualify for the Champions League next season.
