Dundalk FC will face either Linfield or Celtic in the third qualifying round of the Champions League if they can overcome Rosenborg in Norway next week.

The draw for the next stage of the competition was made in Nyon in Switzerland this morning and will give the Lilywhites a huge incentive to reach the next round.

Linfield and Celtic meet in the first leg of their second qualifying round in Windsor Park at 5pm today.

Dundalk played both sides in the European Cup in 1979, beating the Belfast side in a two legged tie which is remembered for riots at Oriel Park that resulted in the away leg being played in Haarlem in the Netherlands.

That year after also beating Malta Hibernians, Jim McLaughlin’s side bowed out of the competition in the last 16 when they lost 3-2 on aggregate to Celtic.

Stephen Kenny’s side drew their second qualifying round first leg match with Rosenborg at Oriel Park on Wednesday night. David McMillan gave the home side an 18th minute lead before Tore Reginiussen equalised a minute before half-time.

The second leg takes place on Wednesday in Trondheim

Should Dundalk advance they will be in action away on July 25th/26th in the first leg of the third qualifying round with the second leg scheduled for August 1st or 2nd at home. This match would have to be played away from Oriel Park as it does not meet requirements to stage a third qualifying round tie.
