Champions League / Qualifications: Red Star stalls, Celtic takes an option

Paris – Celtic Glasgow have taken a step towards the group stage of the Champions League by winning 1-3 on Tuesday at the field of FK Sarajevo in the first leg of the first qualifying round.

The Bosnians opened the scoring by Oremus (29th), but the Scots reacted by achievements of Johnston (35th), Edward (51st), and Sinclair (81st).
