All eyes are on Nyon on Monday with no fewer than five Scottish clubs bracing themselves for play-off draws across the three European competitions.
Sounds promising doesn’t it? But there’s still plenty of work to be done to ensure our Euro representatives even reach that pressure-cooker stage of the Champions League, Europa League and inaugural Europa Conference League.
Nevertheless, simply being among some of the bigger names on the continent as the action cranks up a gear towards the money-spinning group stage is enough to get the mouth watering.
Celtic ’s humbling at the hands of Midjtylland means the Hoops drop into the Europa League leaving Rangers as the sole Scots in the Champions League.
St Johnstone are also embarking on a Europa League excursion while Hibs and Aberdeen are holding up the Saltire in the newly-created Conference League.
But who could all five face should they - as hoped - make it to the play-off round?
Record Sport takes a club-by-club look ahead of the draws.
Rangers - Champions League play-off draw, 11am
It’s Rangers’ first venture into the millionaire’s playground of the Champions League for a decade and ironically it’s Malmo - the last side they faced in the competition back in 2011 - who stand in the way of Steven Gerrard’s side and a play-off for the group stage jackpot.
With a minimum £30m guaranteed from making it beyond the play-off nobody needs tell anyone at Ibrox the importance of the ties lying in wait.
And they could face a fiery rematch with Slavia Prague if they advance past Malmo in the third qualifying round.
The Premiership winners take on their Swedish counterparts on Tuesday, with the second leg at Ibrox the following week.
As league champions Rangers will go through the champions path, but they're unseeded for the play-off round.
And the potential tie that will jump out for any Gers fan is a potential grudge match with Slavia Prague.
The Czech champions knocked Gerrard's side out of last season's Europa League, but the victory was overshadowed by Ondrej Kudela's sickening racist abuse of Glen Kamara for which the defender was slapped with a 10-game Euro ban.
For any chance of that rematch Jindrich Trpisovsky's side must get past Ferencvaros, who knocked out Celtic last season.
FC Salzburg are another potential opponent, as well as a familiar foes Legia Warsaw and Croatia's Dinamo Zagreb.
And a trip to face Olympiakos in a fiery atmosphere could also be on the cards if the Greeks get past Ludogorets.
Celtic - Europa League play-off draw, 12pm
It’s a second bite of the cherry for Ange Postecoglou’s side as they scramble about for a foothold on a season already spiralling out of control.
The Champions League shocker against Midtjylland means they drop into the Europa League where Czech outfit Jablonec provide the opposition in the third qualifying round this week.
Should they make it past the Czechs then Celtic will face one of six sides for a spot in the group stage. The Hoops are in pot four for the draw and will face a side from pot one, made up of teams who enter the competition at this stage.
Fenerbahce are perhaps the biggest threat. Not only would they provide a typically hostile Turkish welcome but Vitor Pereira’s side, which finished third in the Super Lig last season, contains a sprinkling of star quality none less than Mesut Ozil and Jose Sosa and held the Hoops to home and away draws in their last Euro meeting in this competition six years ago.
AZ Alkmaar are another big name in pot one. The Dutch giants finished third in the Eredivisie and bowed out of this competition in the group stage last season. Despite lacking household names - Maxim Gullit, son of Ruud, is taking his first steps into the first team while captain Teun Koopmeiners has been linked with Arsenal - Alkmaar have strong European pedigree and would pose a serious threat.
Ukranian side Zorya Luhansk finished third in the Premier League and runners-up to Dynamo Kiev in their national cup but it was in Europe they made the greatest waves by reaching the Europa league group stage where they defeated Leicester at home and AEK Athens away. Only a fool would write off Viktor Skrypnyk’s side for whom veteran striker Oleksandr Hladkyy is the main goal threat.
Royal Antwerp are no strangers to Scottish supporters given the goal-fest round of 32 clash with Rangers back in February. Steven Gerrard’s side progressed 9-5 on aggregate but the slick attacking danger of the Belgians meant they were certainly no pushovers, though top scorer Lior Refaelov has since moved on to Anderlecht.
Austrians Sturm Graz only missed out on qualifying for the Champions League on goal difference as they finished third. It’s nine years since they reached the group stage of any Euro competition though.
Danish side Randers have never reached the group stage and finished sixth in their league last season. But a stunning Danish Cup victory - only their second ever - sees them go straight into the play-off round.
St Johnstone - Europa League play-off draw, 12pm
Callum Davidson’s Saintees head into Europe for the first time in three years on the back of a sensational cup double winning season.
But they face a massive task if they’re to reach the play-off round having been paired against Turkish behemoths Galatasaray in this week’s third qualifying round. Underdogs they may be but as they proved on more than one occasion last season that suits the Perth men just fine.
Should they dump the Turks then it’s into the play-off and, as they are in the same pot as Celtic, they would face one of the same pot one sides.
Hibs and Aberdeen - Europa Conference League play-off draw, 1pm
It may be the least lucrative of the Euro competitions but the all-new ECL is not short of potential blockbuster ties for Aberdeen and Hibs as they look to force their way into the play-off round.
The Dons have to find a way past Icelandic club Breidablik while Hibs are up against the might of Croatians Rijeka in QR3.
But if they do progress then things could become a whole lot more glamourous with Italian giants Roma, former European champions Feyenoord and Tottenham Hotspur just three of the sides they could face.
Aberdeen are unseeded in Group 1 and could face any one of seven seeded sides.
Top billing would be Spurs. A cross-border clash always gets the juices flowing and the Londoners would provide huge Battle of Britain excitement.
Apollon Limassol or Qarabag isn't a gimme - a repeat of their clash with the Cypriots is the last thing the Dons would want after an ugly meeting four years ago but the Azerbaijani outfit are ever-improving.
Viktoria Plzen or The New Saints has a clear gulf. Welsh minnows TNS defeated Glentoran in the last round but have their work cut out against the Czechs, who are likely to progress.
Finally Basel or Upjest could be on the cards. The Swiss side will be favourites to progress against the Hungarians and are no strangers to the Champions League.
Hibs are also unseeded in Group 3 and could face one of eight seeded sides.
Astana or KUPS are potential options here, and Kazakh opposition is never top of the wanted list. A trip to Finland would be much better logistically - but unlikely.
PAOK or Bohemians could come out of the hat. Rangers faced the Greeks in the late 1990s and it’s an intimidating arena when full as the Irish look to pull off a shock.
Feyenoord or Luzern would both represent a tough draw. Arne Slot is the new man at the helm of the Dutch giants after Dick Advocaat retired last year and they remain a huge name in European football even if they are not the force they once were.
And finally RFS or Gent. Latvian opposition have been a mixed bag for Scottish sides down the years. But RFS would no doubt be a more pleasing prospect than Begian cracks Gent.
