Commons does his research
Kris Commons went straight to the Internet to read up on Champions League play-off opponents Helsingborg after the draw was made in Nyon.
Following their convincing 2-0 win over HJK Helsinki in Finland on Wednesday, which sealed a 4-1 aggregate triumph, Neil Lennon's men were paired with the Swedish champions, who themselves enjoyed an impressive 6-1 aggregate win over Polish side Slask Wroclaw in the third qualifier.
Commons was keen to discover more about the team that stands between the Hoops and a highly-coveted place in the lucrative group stages of European football's elite club competition.
"I don't know much about them and have just been reading about them this morning," the Scotland midfielder told Celtic's official website. "I think they won the treble last year and are sixth in the league just now.
"I wouldn't say we are confident of progressing but it certainly whets your appetite to think you are potentially two games away from playing in the Champions League.
"It's quite surreal really to think you are one round away from competing in the best club competition in the world.
"After the game in Helsinki everyone was buzzing and it's something we all want to be part of."
Celtic will travel to Sweden for the first leg on August 21 before contesting the return match at Parkhead eight days later.
Commons said: "I think most teams think if they can get a half-decent result away from home then you have home advantage for the second leg to really go at teams and get a couple of goals, but it's quite new to everyone here.
"We have a young squad and are quite inexperienced in Europe, so it's quite unusual territory for us.
"I think if you were talking to a player from Man United or Chelsea, they would definitely be saying they want the away leg out of the way and then concentrate on home.
"But for us, we have two games to progress and we will be looking to play as we usually do and score goals and keep a clean sheet."
Commons is in Philadelphia for Celtic's glamour friendly against Real Madrid tomorrow and it is a fixture he believes could provide a guide to the Hoops' progress.
"It should be good," he said. "No doubt there will be a decent crowd there.
"It will be good to play against one of the best teams in the world and see where we are. Nothing will be riding on it but we would like to leave with our credit intact and give them a good game."
