  1. ^ Celtic played Champions League qualifying fixtures at Murrayfield Stadium due to Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony at Celtic Park.
  2. ^ The second leg originally ended 0–2 but Legia Warsaw were later ruled to have forfeited the match after fielding suspended player Bartosz Bereszyński as a substitute, and Celtic were therefore awarded the second leg as a Walkover 3–0. Celtic won on away goals.[3]
