Champions League prize money revealed with Liverpool set to earn LESS than Real Madrid even if they win ‘revenge’ final

IT'S being billed as the "revenge" final after Liverpool star Mohamed Salah said he has a "score to settle" with Real Madrid.

But how much prize money will be bagged by the winners of this year's Champions League final?

Teams earn more prize money the further they progress in the competition, with the champions netting an extra £3.8million for winning the final.

A Liverpool triumph would see the Anfield club bank £93m from the competition overall, according to the Mirror.

And while that is certainly not to be sniffed at, Real Madrid will collect a whopping £102m in prize money if they come out on top.

Even if they lose on Saturday Carlo Ancelotti's side will bank around £98m, which is £5m more than the figure Liverpool will earn if they lift the trophy.

Qualifying for the knockouts banked another £8.1m, then £9m for reaching the quarters, and £10.5m for making the semi-finals.

The finalists then get £13.1m each, with another £3.8m for the winners.

So all in all a seventh crown would bag Liverpool just under £100m, while Real Madrid would break the £100m mark if they win.

However those earnings do not take into account any matchday or broadcast income, which would significantly boost the figures.

Liverpool also get 30 per cent of Uefa's £253m broadcasting pot for finishing second in the Prem table last season.

A place in this summer's Super Cup against Europa League winners Frankfurt is then worth another £3m.
