With the new format, Uefa more or less telling the smaller nations they are not wanted in the Champions League. A super league without disbanding the National Leagues.

I agree nobody has an interest in the Steauas or Legia Warsaws of this world bar their fans but 6 qualifying places up for grabs is fairly pathetic. Probably bound to be even less in a few years.

I always thought Celtic went in later into the qualifying rounds than round 1.

Good result for Celtic, they play AEK Athens next for a place in the playoffs - ridiculous that national champions need to play 3 or 4 qualifiers just to make the group stages of the Champions League!

So, one more qualifying round, then the playoffs, before we get to the group stage, yes?
