Without the Champions League, Atletico Madrid’s coffers would suffer considerably. In 2019-20, the team pocketed 9.5 million to reach the last 16, in addition to each victory for 2.7 million. An amount that, with the losses that the pandemic has caused, seems vital.
Atletico drew 1-1 with Bayern on their last European night. A draw is enough for the ‘colchoneros’ to reach the last 16. And they are confident that this will be the case.
Because, otherwise, Atletico will see their coffers suffer. As ‘Mundo Deportivo’ reminds us, they won around 9.5 million euros last season just for getting a place in the last 16.
Moreover, every victory in the Champions League has a financial reward. 2.7 million is taken by each club every time they win in Europe.
So, apart from the sporting aspect, Atlético is playing for money. This year, the pandemic has left many losses.
The public still cannot access stadiums and this has had a very negative impact on the coffers of all the clubs in the world. Losing that amount in Europe would be a tough loss to take
