Lazio Earn Over €8 Million in First Champions League Payment

UEFA have sent out their first set of payments for Champions League clubs, bringing in over €8m for Lazio.

The Biancocelesti have shown some positive signs in their tough European campaign this season, stealing a dramatic late draw with Atletico Madrid through Ivan Provedel before edging out a last-second victory over Celtic in their second game.

Lazio fell back down to Earth in their third outing, falling to Eredivisie outfit Feyenoord away from home. Maurizio Sarri’s side still have a strong shot of reaching the Round of 16 of the competition.

As reported by Calcio e Finanza (via La Lazio Siamo Noi), UEFA have paid the 32 clubs participating in the Champions League €284.55 million total following the first three round of European fixtures.

The four involved Italian clubs have received €34.7 million total. Napoli have earnt the most, around €12.4m, followed by Inter with €9.93m and Lazio with €8.83m. Milan have earnt the least due to their poor results, just €3.56m.
