Celtic will face Hungarian champions Ferencvaros in the second qualifying round of the Champions League next Wednesday night.
After thrashing Icelandic side KR Reykjavik 6-0 earlier this week, they will get their second successive European tie at home. Considering the first three qualifying rounds are one-off games, they will go into the match expecting to progress.
Assessing the strength of their next European opponents, some Celtic supporters on Twitter believe that this game will be a lot tougher:
They’re a whole lot better than Reykjavik.

Seem to be tough to break down but we should have enough quality pic.twitter.com/nHcQGISCDW

It’ll be a tough game I reckon they’re no mugs, I think we will have enough though, being a one leg tie makes all these qualifiers even more of a banan skin. An early goal for us will be needed in my opinion just to settle us down and let them then have to come out ???

Going back to the sixties … a team to be reckoned with , today not so much but these things go in cycles so might be on the way back in any case Celtic will either make it harder than it is or will go out we are not Bayern Munich !?☘️

Ferencvaros only lost once in their Europa League group last season, and they tend to keep things quite tight at the back so Neil Lennon’s side may have to be patient in order to break them down.
Even so, Celtic will be heavy favourites to go through to the next round. The Hoops face Dundee United away from home on Saturday before they play their Champions League qualifier next week, and they will be hoping to keep up their momentum following the convincing victory against Reykjavik.
