Juve biggest financial winners from UCL



Juventus may have been knocked out in the quarterfinals but they were the biggest financial winners from last season's Champions League competition.

Bayern Munich beat German compatriots Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in May's Wembley final yet neither side could match Juve's earning power, a Uefa report said.

The Italian champions made €65.3 million last season from their participation, more than €10 million more than Bayern earned.

The two finalists unsurprisingly were the next biggest winners with Bayern earning €55.0 million and Dortmund making €54.2 million.

The 32 clubs partipating in the group stages shared out €904.6 million, according to Uefa.

The main difference between the German pair and Juve was television rights with the Turin giants earning €44.8 million from that alone, compared with just €19.1 million for Bayern.

AC Milan, who only made it to the second round, were the next biggest winners with €51.4 million ahead of Spanish losing semifinalists Real Madrid (48.4m) and Barcelona (45.5m) and French quarterfinalists Paris Saint-Germain (44.7m).

The top English earners were Manchester United, who earned €35.6 million despite their second round exit.

The smallest share of €10.5 million went to Dynamo Zagreb.
