Celtic FC held out for a scoreless draw in Boras which took them past Swedish title holders IF Elfsborg and a step closer to a return to the UEFA Champions League group stage. 

Bringing with them a 1-0 advantage from last week's first leg, Neil Lennon's men withstood prolonged periods of pressure from Elfsborg but did not buckle, leaving their hosts to ponder what might have been. Elfsborg have not competed in a UEFA competition group stage since 2007/08 yet Jörgen Lennartsson's side may well feel they should have gone through after pushing Celtic all the way.
