Juventus made €65m from CL

Juventus netted more money from their Champions League campaign than competition winners Bayern Munich last season, claims the Gazzetta dello Sport.

Juventus reportedly earned €65.3m in 2012-13, despite being knocked out by the Germans in the quarter-final stages.

Bayern are said to have netted €55m, with runners-up Borussia Dortmund making €54.2m and Milan €51.4m.

Real Madrid [€48.4m], Barcelona [€45.5m], Paris Saint-Germain [€44.7m], Manchester United [€35.6m] and Arsenal [€31.4m] followed.

The figures were made up from UEFA’s prize money, but a significant chunk came from the TV rights market pool.

Juventus and Milan were advantaged in this sense given that Italy had only two Champions League entrants last season.

Sky Italia and Mediaset have costly contracts in place with UEFA to show Champions League football on the peninsula.
