NYON, Switzerland (AP) - The path to the group stage of the Champions League for former European champions Celtic and Red Star Belgrade started Monday in the qualifying draw.

Celtic will first play away in the second qualifying round against Estonian champion Flora Tallinn or Gibraltar champion Lincoln.

Red Star also travels in the first leg, to face Malta champion Valletta or Faeroe Islands champion B36 Torshavn.

In other second qualifying round matches, it was: Vardar vs. Dinamo Zagreb; BATE Borisov vs. SJK Seinajoki; and Rosenborg vs. Norrkoping.

Albanian club Skenderbeu, which UEFA disqualified for fixing matches, must win a Court of Arbitration for Sport appeal to play Hungarian club Ferencvaros.

The first qualifying round will be completed by July 6, and the second round will be played between July 12 and 20.
