Champions League play-off: Arsenal face Besiktas

Arsenal will play Turkish side Besiktas in the Champions League play-off round, while Celtic faces Slovenia’s Maribor after being reinstated.

The Gunners, who finished fourth in the Premier League, have appeared in the group stages of the Champions League in each of the past 14 seasons.

Celtic lost 6-1 to Legia Warsaw in qualifying, but the Polish team fielded an ineligible player.

Besiktas’s squad includes striker Demba Ba, who moved from Chelsea in July.

His new team finished third in the Turkish Super League – behind Fenerbahce and Galatasaray – and is managed by former West Ham and Everton defender Slaven Bilic.
