Elimination in the Champions League would cost PSG a fortune: the frightening figure

PSG travels to Dortmund this Wednesday on the last day of the group stage of the Champions League with immense stakes, particularly on the financial level.

This Wednesday evening, Paris travels to Dortmund for the last day of the group stage of the Champions League, with the hope of qualifying for the round of 16. However, the stakes are enormous. In the event of reversion to the Europa League, the consequences would be catastrophic for Paris from a financial point of view.

A first since the arrival of QSI?

Such a poor performance would be a first since the arrival of the Qatari owners in 2011. As a reminder of the accounting situation, a victory at Signal Iduna Park would allow the Parisians to qualify for the round of 16, even finishing first in group F. .

Any other performance would leave them feverishly monitoring St James’ Park, where Newcastle host AC Milan at the same time. Because going off the road would deprive the Ile-de-France club of more than 30 million euros.

In the event of a disaster scenario, Luis Enrique’s players would say goodbye to their qualification bonus for the round of 16 of the C1 (9.6 million euros), to which would have to be added a drop in commercial revenues from the French market (approximately 20 million euros). Without forgetting the victory bonus against Borussia (2.8 million euros).
