Neil Lennon’s men will have to navigate Estonian champions Nomme Kalju first in the second round, which will be played over the course of the next seven days, but the fans are already looking forward to the third-round draw.

The Hoops welcome the side to Parkhead on Wednesday, with the return leg next Tuesday, and they should realistically be able to see off Nomme Kalju, who are currently fourth in the Estonian Meistriliiga, some 12 points off the top of the division.

Should they get through they will meet either of Cluj or Maccabi Tel-Aviv. The draw has been fairly kind to those of a green and white persuasion, as they avoided Greek champions PAOK.

The Greek side, who went unbeaten last year, drew Champions League semi-finalists Ajax in a mouth-watering tie, while the Bhoys will face last year’s league winners from either Romania or Israel.
