Arsenal will face Glasgow Celtic in the third qualifying round of the Champions League this month.

It is the first time Arsenal have faced the Hoops in a competitive match. The Scottish Premier League runners-up reached the last qualifying stage after overturning a 1-0 deficit against Dinamo Moscow to win 2-0 in the second leg in Russia - their first European away win for six years.

In the past three seasons the Gunners have beaten Dinamo Zagreb, Sparta Prague and FC Twente at the same stage, easily progressing to the lucrative group stages.

Arsenal will travel to Glasgow for the first leg on August 18 or 19, with the return at Emirates a week later.
