Celtic of the Scottish Premiership await the arrival of Czech First League side Jablonec for a Europa League qualification second leg at Celtic Park, where the home side will begin the match 4-2 up on aggregate.
Celtic were relegated to Europa League qualification after they lost 3-2 on aggregate to Midtjylland in their Champions League qualifier after a 94th-minute winner in the second leg from the Danish side.
Celtic’s next game after this Europa League qualifier against Jablonec is a Scottish Cup tie against Hearts, so Celtic will need to weigh up whether they plan to play stronger in one or the other, or whether they want to risk going all out in both.
Jablonec enter Europa League qualification at this stage having finished third in their respective league last season. This season, they’ve played three games so far and sit seventh in the table after one win, one loss and one draw.
Jablonec’s next match comes three days after this Europa League qualifier against Celtic. They play a league match against Teplice, who are currently bottom of the league after playing three and losing three.
Odds For Celtic v Jablonec
Celtic are the strong favourites to progress through to the Europa League qualification final against Alkmaar, where they can be one of eight teams to progress from the qualifiers to the group stages.

Celtic v Jablonec Teams
As previously mentioned, Celtic will need to consider which competition they may want to take more seriously, the Europa League or the Scottish Cup, or whether they’re going to risk going full strength for both games, which could have an impact on either of these competitions or their next league performance.
Celtic have had a very active transfer window so far this summer, bagging £14.13m for centre-back Kristoffer Ajer who leaves for Premier League side Brentford. They’ve then gone on to sign Kyogo Furuhashi for £4.86m, Carl Starfelt for £4.5m, Liel Abada for £3.6m and Joe Hart from Spurs for just over a million pounds.
Jablonec have a slightly clearer schedule going forward, with their next match coming against the bottom of the league side Teplice. This means they can and will likely field their strongest starting eleven against Celtic on Thursday night.
The Czech side have had three players return from loan, four new signings on free transfers, and a single paid transfer in the region of £99,000 for right-back Michal Surzyn. Seven departures in total mean Jablonec’s squad size increases by one to 26.
Celtic v Jablonec Domestic Leagues
After two games so far this season, Celtic sit in fourth place after one loss and one win, although after a 6-0 win against Dundee, their goal difference is looking pretty healthy at 7:2.

Three matches into the Czech top division season, Jablonec have registered a win, a draw and a loss, rendering them seventh in the table out of sixteen teams.
Last season, Jablonec finished third in the league, five points behind Sparta Prague and six points ahead of fourth-placed Slovacko. Jablonec finished fourth the two seasons prior, third in the 2017/18 season and eighth in 2016/17.
