After a goal-fest at Stadion Střelnice a week ago, it is Celtic who are in pole position in this tie.
Going into that tie last Thursday, the Hoops were in crisis.
They’d crashed out of Champions League qualifying to Midtjylland and then lost their Premiership opener to Hearts at Tynecastle.
This was their first three-match winless start to a season for 44 years.
But, after just a quarter of an hour in the Czech Republic, they were 2-0 up.
First, Liel Abada fired home before Kyōgo Furuhashi raced through and lobbed goalkeeper Jan Hanuš.
But then, their defensive frailties were on show again; Nir Bitton was caught ball-watching and Václav Pilař ran through to score.
The Hoops did restore their two-goal lead, James Forrest firing in a rebound, but then the hosts were on target again with just five to play.
Tomáš Malínský’s shot rebounded off the post and then in via Bitton.
Nevertheless, Celtic did get their two-goal cushion in the end; in the final minute, Forrest’s brilliant cross was headed in by Ryan Christie.
So, 4-2 it finished and Celtic surely have one foot in the Europa League play-off round.
The Scottish club have qualified for a group phase in each of the last ten seasons and, after more Champions League embarrassment, Europa League is demanded as a consolation prize.
Jablonec meanwhile have only ever qualified for one group stage in their history, finishing bottom of their Europa League group in 2018.

The Czech side have actually lost their last three qualifiers, to Ajax in 2015, Pyunik in 2019 and DAC Dunajská Streda 12 months ago.
This streak is looking likely to be extended to four-in-a-row.
The winners of this tie will face Dutch club AZ in the Europa League play-off round; not an easy draw at all.
