Celtic are seeded in pot two for Friday’s UEFA Europa League group stage draw, with a number of tasty opponents possible.

After Brendan Rodgers’ side successfully pushed aside Lithuanian champions FK Suduva at Celtic Park on Thursday night, the club and supporters can look forward to finding out where they will be playing their European football until Christmas.

Facing a team from pot one, pot three and pot four, there’s a number of great destinations possible, with the potential of facing some European giants too.

The full list of possible opponents, in co-efficient order, is as follows:

POT 1

Sevilla
Arsenal
Chelsea
Zenit
Leverkusen
Besiktas
Dynamo Kiev
RB Salzburg
Olympiakos
Villarreal
Anderlecht
Lazio

POT 3

Real Betis
Qarabag
BATE Borisov
Dinamo Zagreb
RB Leipzig
Frankfurt
Malmo
Spartak Moscow
Standard Liege
Zurich
Bordeaux
Rennes

POT 4

Apollon Limassol
Rosenborg
Vorksla Poltava
Slavia Prague
Akhisarspor
Jablonec
AEK Larnaca
Videoton
Dudelange
Spartak Trnava
Sarpsborg

Because of country protection, the Hoops cannot face Rangers, meaning there is one less team in the possible list of pot four opponents.

Drawing the likes of Chelsea or Arsenal would ensure two massive occasions and the club won’t want to play any of the teams geographically thousands of miles away in pot three and four.

The draw takes place at 1pm Celtic Park time on Friday.

We can’t wait to see how it all pans out.
