Celtic will face Swedish side Elfsborg or Daugava Daugavpils of Latvia in the third qualifying round of the Champions League should they progress in the competition.

The Hoops are in the driving seat for a place in the next round after securing a convincing 3-0 first-leg win over Northern Ireland champions Cliftonville ahead of next week's return leg in Glasgow.

Elfsborg are set to provide the opposition for the Scottish champions in the next round as a result of their emphatic 7-1 advantage over the Latvians from the first leg.

Sligo Rovers will face The New Saints of Wales or Legia Warszawa (1-3) should they overcome a 1-0 first-leg deficit against Molde on Tuesday. 

The games will be played 30/31 July and 6/7 August.
