Celtic are a mere matter of days away from beginning their Champions League qualification progress with a trip to Sarajevo.

Sarajevo seem quite confident ahead of the tie. Indeed, one of their players claims to have spotted weaknesses in the Hoops side.

“We have analysed Celtic a lot since we returned to training” he said, as reported by the Scottish Sun.

“We are confident”

“They don’t have a lot of weak points, but they have a few, and we are aiming to take advantage of them. I think it will be a tough, physical battle, and we are confident we can get the right result.”

Celtic will have noted Hodzic’s comments with interest. There is no doubt that the game will be difficult for the Hoops.

However, both sides are yet to start their season, so neither side is liable to not be at their very best yet. Should the Hoops play to their ability though, there should be only one winner.

Neil Lennon and Celtic will be under pressure to make sure that the Hoops get through the game unscathed. Perhaps even a draw would be ok to take into the second leg at Celtic Park.

However, the fans will be hoping that the Hoops get off to a good start this season with a convincing win.
