A report in the Italian press details how much Inter Milan have collected from the Champions League thus far this season.
The Italian giants entered the competition as last season’s runners-up.
They did well to swiftly book their spot in the Round of 16 after earning ten points from their first four matchday fixtures.
Simone Inzaghi’s side added a point to their tally last night from a thrilling comeback against Benfica.
Inter started with a second-string line-up and found themselves trailing by three goals at halftime. Yet, they managed to equalize the score with a solid second-half display and almost found the winner.
According to Calcio e Finanza via FcInterNews, the Nerazzurri have now guaranteed at least 62.36 million euros from their Champions League participation.
The source explains how it reached this sum by revealing the figures earned through various streams.
Inter collected 15.64 million merely from participating in the group stage. The club’s historical ranking adds 20.5M to the equation.
Moreover, the market pool (based on TV rights in Italy) guarantees another 5.36 million euros between the group stage and the Round of 16.
