The draw for the Champions League play-off round took place in Nyon, Switzerland on Friday, where participants discovered who stands in their way to the group stages.

Previous finalists Arsenal, FC Porto and Bayer Leverkusen were all included in the draw, while smaller clubs such as Maribor and Slovan Bratislava were dreaming of a route into the lucrative first round.

Celtic were arguably the biggest winners of the day after being handed a reprieve when UEFA disqualified Legia Warsaw for fielding an ineligible player in their third qualifying round second-leg win over the Scottish champions.

Celtic were beaten 6-1 on aggregate, but the European governing body awarded the Hoops the second leg as a 3-0 win to gift them "victory" in the tie on away goals.

Of all, which club has received a favourable pairing in the play-off round? Who has been handed a difficult tie in the chase for the group stages?

Here we take a look at the winners and losers from the play-off round draw.
