Real Madrid is the only LaLiga team standing in the UEFA Champions League after Barcelona, Sevilla, and Atlético Madrid were knocked out.
Real Madrid is the only LaLiga representative left in this season’s UEFA Champions League. Atlético Madrid were eliminated from Group B as Club Brugge and FC Porto progressed to the knockout stages. Atlético Madrid can still qualify for the Europa League, while Barcelona now know they will be playing in the Europa League after a disappointing group stage.
The Catalan giants are third with 4 points behind Bayern Munich and Inter Milan who have 15 and 10 points respectively. Sevilla, with an animated but often confused Jorge Sampaoli, were in Group G behind Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund.
It all means bragging rights for Real Madrid, but it also means that some money will come into the club as they are the only LaLiga team left. Here’s what Real Madrid want to do for their Champions League ‘success’.
Real Madrid to get 8.6 million euros
According to TyC Sports, Real Madrid are set to net an extra 8.6 million euros in prize money as a result of still being in competition. That amount could still end up being 11.2 million euros if the Spanish giants make it to another final.
In total Real Madrid could make an estimated 26.8 million euros this season as opposed to the 16.8 million from last season. Real Madrid are heavy favorites to repeat as champions of the UCL.
