It seems like relations are pretty good between FC Copenhagen and Celtic – judging by social media at least.

The clubs have been flirting with each other on Twitter since the draw for the Europa League tie was made back in December.

Things were cranked up a notch last week, as we told you about the Danes’ tremendous Brexit-themed Celtic preview video on the eve of the first leg.

And it seems like they’re continuing on the charm offensive ahead of tonight’s game, as they tweeted their joy after arriving at Paradise.

On Wednesday evening, around 24 hours before kick-off, the official account tweeted: “See you again in 24 hours at your impressive home.”

Copenhagen and Celtic created a memorable first leg

There’s probably a good appreciation between the clubs because of how similar we are.

We’re both the dominant sides in our countries, even though Copenhagen are struggling to win the league this campaign.

We’re the champions of smaller leagues, with big supports and terrific stadia.

It is really what the Europa League should be all about. Last week’s first leg was played at a great tempo in a fantastic stadium that was jam-packed.

Tonight will be a very similar setting, and perhaps even more vibrant with the game being played in front of more fans and being a second leg.

It’s great to go up against historical European clubs like Copenhagen. Beating them is even better.
