Belfast (AFP) – Scottish champions Celtic should not have too many problems on the pitch with Northern Irish title holders Linfield in their Champions League second qualifying round first leg on Friday, but they can expect a hostile reception.

If not for Crusaders' Jordan Owens (34'), the match could have been even more lopsided.

Two early goals from forward Mark McAllister (3' and 18') saw Linfield, Northern Ireland's most elite football program, quickly open up the lead.

Only six minutes later "Big" Jim Ervin (24') made it three to zero but the scoresheet was to be edited two more times before the end of the half as Curtis Allen scored in the 34th minute and Peter Thompson added a 45th-minute goal.
