Liverpool could pocket a cool £93million in the event that they beat Real Madrid within the Champions League final on Saturday, with the losing side only missing out on an additional £3.8m. But resulting from their domination over the past decade, Los Blancos are set to earn greater than Liverpool even in the event that they lose.
Resulting from the prize money that Liverpool have collected over this season’s Champions League, they’re set to receive £93m with a win over Madrid, although Los Blancos can expect £102m should they achieve success in Paris, in response to The Mirror.
Each side have been racking up their prize funds over the course of the competition, with Liverpool edging the totals resulting from winning all of their group matches. But Madrid will still earn greater than the Reds resulting from their recent run within the Champions League.
Los Blancos are already guaranteed to gather £100m whatever the consequence on Saturday, and that is due to their superior ten-year coefficient. Madrid have won 4 Champions League titles over the past 10 years, they usually have not lost a European final since 1981, when it was Liverpool that stopped them in Paris.

And must you advance to the knockout stages then a further bonus of £8.1m shall be awarded. Quarter-finalists earn an extra £9m, with £10.5m available on top of that must you reach the last 4 of the competition.
And at last, the last two teams, on this case Liverpool and Madrid, each receive £13.1m for reaching the last stage with a small increase of £3.8m the ultimate incentive for the highest dog. But those figures don’t include matchday or broadcast income, meaning the general takings for the campaign will exceed £100m.
Their failure to catch City ended their probabilities of securing the quadruple, something that has never been done before by an English side. However the treble stays on the cards, and Liverpool shall be desperate to end the season in style.
Liverpool go into the sport as favourites as they’ve been all season in every cup competition. But whatever the result, the prize money will go a good distance as Klopp looks to sustain Liverpool’s recent dominance.
