Celtic will face either Malmo or MON Vidi in the Champions League playoffs if they can overcome AEK Athens in the third qualifying round.

Celtic have discovered their potential opponents in the playoff round of the Champions League.

The Scottish giants are bidding to earn a place in the group stages of the competition, and Brendan Rodgers is currently preparing his team for a two-legged tie with AEK Athens in the third qualifying round.

However, the draw has already been made for the playoffs, with either Malmo or MON Vidi standing in the way of Celtic or the Greek outfit later this month.

The first leg will be held in either Sweden or Hungary on August 21 or 22, with the reverse fixture being staged the following week.

Celtic are bidding to qualify for the group stages of the tournament for the third successive year.
