FK Sarajevo vs Celtic (By: DamirJ)
FK Sarajevo had a really fine previous domestic season, as the team won the domestic league with five points more than second-placed Zrinjski.
They have also won the finals fo the Cup competition with a 3:1 aggregate win over Siroki Brijeg. The team looks pretty similar in quality for now regarding the transfer period, although they had some moves on the market.
During the pre season matches, Sarajevo has lost to Czech side Slovacko 2:0 and to Slovenian team Domzale 3:2 last week.
Celtic couldn't reach the Champions League group stage losing out to AEK Athens quite undeservedly last season with a 2:3 aggregate score.
However, they had a decent role in the Europa League even though they were drawn in a tough group together with Salzburg, RB Leipzig, and Rosenborg. Further on, they were knocked out by Valencia in the 1/8 finals. As for the domestic competitions, their dominance was obvious again winning another double crown.
Forward Issouf Bayo is sidelined for the guests. They have signed central defender Jullien from Toulouse and a right back Bolingoli from Rapid Wien for now.
A few players have left them, including central back Boyata who gone to Hertha, but all the moves were anyway pre-planned during spring.
During the preparation period, Celtic has already played three matches winning over amateur side Pinkafeld 6:1, Wiener Sportklub 2:1 and having a goalless draw against St Galen last Tuesday.
There is some quality difference that separates these two sides and it can't be neglected. Pretty sure that Celtic is now taking early qualifying stages very seriously, while the team from Bosnia doesn't seem to have that discipline nor individual quality to match them here in a real and proper way.
