The final of the UEFA Champions League is approaching and Red fans want to know how many millions Liverpool will lose if Real Madrid beat them.
More news about Liverpool:
Because many people may not know it, there is a considerable financial prize for whoever wins the tournament, plus the incentives that sponsors give to their clubs.
This is the millionaire figure that Liverpool will lose if Real Madrid beats them in the final of the UEFA Champions League
According to international media reports, the winner of the UEFA Champions League gets a sum of 4.5 million euros, but the team could lose part of the 95 million its sponsors want to pay for next season.
This is because the club's main sponsor, the powerful Standard Chartered bank, agreed this year to double its sponsorship of the club because both institutions agreed to do so.
And that sponsorship will go from €45.7 million to €95 million, but the sum could be at risk because although the Reds have reached three finals of the tournament since 2018, they have so far failed to be crowned.
And it is common for sponsors to reward or punish clubs financially according to their performance, so if Liverpool loses the final, they could face financial punishment from Standard Chartered or some other sponsor who is unhappy with their results.
In fact, with the agreement between the club and the bank, the club's shirt has been considered the most expensive in the world, in terms of what a sponsor must pay to appear on it.
Who has won the most UEFA Champions League matches in the Liverpool vs Real Madrid duel?
In the 7 matches that both teams have played in the tournament, only 2 victories have gone to Liverpool, while Real Madrid has beaten them on 4 occasions, and in 1 of those matches the duel ended in a draw.
And this draw occurred in the last match that both clubs played, on April 14, 2021, but on that occasion, the Merengues had done their job in the first leg, which they won against Liverpool with a score of 3-1.
And so it was they who advanced to the semifinals of the tournament, while the Reds had to go home. That is why the match to be played on the 28th of this month is so important for Jürgen Klopp's club.
The team is looking not only to win the tournament but to take revenge on Los Merengues, who snatched the 2018 final from them, in which Los Blancos beat the Reds with a score of 3-1, with goals from Benzema and a brace from Bale on Madrid's side, and a strike from Sadio Mané.
