UEFA To Pay Clubs N2.17bn For Day One Wins And Draws

A win the champions league group stage is worth 735,000 pounds and a draw is fixed at half that amount, winner of Berlin 2015 final gets N2.23bn

UEFA Champions League day one lit Europe on Tuesday and Wednesday with some remarkable results, most notably from the Santiago Bernabeu where Madrid thrashed Swiss champions FC Basel 5-1 and the most shocking from the Allianz Arena where City were stunned by an 89 minutes goal from a player who was once in their ranks, Jerome Boateng

Every club with a win in this season’s Champions league would pocket 735,000  pounds while a draw will earn them half that amount, 367,500 pounds

If there was monetary bonus to goals scored, FC Porto and Real Madrid would be pocketing more than just the N197m for their win, FC Porto trounced BATE Borisov 6-0 to emerge the highest scoring team, with Algerian striker Yasine Brahimi who tops the scorers chart with three goals

Out of total 16 games played on Tuesday and     Wednesday, 11 ties ended in a win and 5 in a draw

For the 11 wins, UEFA paid out N2.17bn and N1.83m for the 5 draws

UEFA also will pay the winner of next year’s Berlin final N2.23bn.

Wow, what sums!
