Celtic join big guns in group stage

AFP, PARIS

Manuel Jose and Carlao scored consolation goals for tiny Pacos, who finished third in their domestic league last season.

Meanwhile, Czech champions Viktoria Plzen won 1-0 away to NK Maribor in Slovenia to progress 4-1 on aggregate with Stanislav Tecl’s early goal easing their path through.

They join Arsenal, Schalke 04, Basel, Steaua Bucharest and Austria Vienna, who all won on Tuesday in the group-stage draw, along with the 22 automatic qualifiers, led by reigning European champions Bayern Munich.
