Celtic secure Champions League play-off spot
Wednesday 07 August 2013
Celtic booked their place in the Champions League play-off round as a goalless draw against Elfsborg in Boras gave Neil Lennon's side a 1-0 aggregate win in their third qualifying round tie.
While it was not a great display from Celtic they did enough to get through the tie. On the Swedish club's artificial surface, both sides had chances in the first half with Elfsborg's on-loan striker Mo Bangura missing a sitter against his parent club, failing from 10 yards with a free header.
By comparison the second half was dour, and while the final stages were tense the Scottish champions remained solid to the end.
