Celtic will be in pot one for Europa League group stage after a remarkable run of results boosted their standings ahead of Friday's draw.

And Neil Lennon will be eyeing safe passage to the last 32 of the tournament once again as the Hoops look to build upon last year's thrilling run that included a pair of wins over Lazio.

But there's a certain sense of familiarity of offer after beating the Bosnian champions for a second consecutive season as they earned a place in pot two ahead of Friday's draw.

The dramatic turnaround means Kieran Tierney can't come up against his boyhood heroes with Arsenal also in the pot one mix to to face Celtic.

However, a clash with Leicester and the chance to put one over former boss Brendan Rodgers is very much on the cards.

The Foxes are in pot two but a clash with AC Milan was kiboshed after their shock defeat to Rio Ave.

The pandemic has changed everything but it's almost inconceivable to imagine Rodgers returning to Glasgow without supporters inside Parkhead.

Elsewhere, Cluj are a potential another pot three team and you certainly wouldn't blame the Hoops for wanting to swerve a another tie against Dan Petrescu's side.
