qualifying for the CL 2021/22

What are the chances?

one team? both? none?

This is a huge test for both teams, I suspect that we may end up with no teams making it.

Rangers performed well in the EL the past couple of seasons and seem to be relatively settled but there a lot really tough ties out there.

Celtic have a little optimism with the new manager coming in, there must be a few worries with the lack of transfer activity at the moment given their first game is not far away. Can they turn it around after the calamity that was last season?

Think it depends on the draw. Concern for me with Rangers is suspension of Roofe and Kamara, two key players who will miss the qualifiers.

Then it depends on the Morelos situation although I don't think he will go until later in the window if he does go.

Agree though I think Slavia is almost inevitable.

Celtic have a much tougher task and they will be doing well to get through.

The Danish team are no mugs and also in the middle of their season. Looking at Celtic just now they don't seem equipped for this test yet and looking at the team that played Sheff Wed I'm not sure that gets through. Even if they add 5 or 6 players in the next week it would be difficult for them to be up to speed and settled to make an impact in a game this size.

We slapped Midgetland about 7-3 on agg with our 2019 team so it's a good draw for Celtic.They should be beating them.

The league path (Celtic's) is easier now than it used to be but still tougher than ours.

Shakhtar Donetsk and Benfica the two big sides in that side of the draw but Celtic would be seeded until the play-off round. If we were in that side of the draw i would be expecting play-off round minimum.

I'm not sure there is much difference in quality between the paths until the play-off round.

they should be beating a team based on a their form over 2 years ago?

pretty mad statement that, though given Midtjylland finished 2nd in the league and were beaten 8 times last season. Hardly a team they should be afraid of

What makes you think that the team that played Sheffield would play in Europe?

Celtic?

I've no idea what team Celtic would play Mags. Just looking at the current squad for that game I'm not sure it makes the group stages or beats a decent Danish team in the first tie. Do you disagree? I couldn't think of many players still to return who didn't feature, think Forrest is the only one? The back 4 and keeper options in particular are miles off it.

Is a disaster, a catastrophe if Celtic go out to the midgets.
