Espanyol pockets 1,57 'Euromillions' in 90 minutes

In addition to the € 570,000 he adds per victory in the Europa League, he gets 500,000 for access to sixteenths, plus another million if he finishes first or € 500,000 more if he is second.


In economic terms, Espanyol's loose victory against Ludogorets on Thursday in the Europa League (6-0) will almost certainly be the most profitable in its history in direct return. And not because money is added to their income for each goal scored, but because of what these three points collected against the Bulgarians in the group stage immediately mean for the parakeet.

The win against Ludogorets, together with the draw between Ferencvaros and CSKA of Moscow (0-0) entails the mathematical classification for the round of 16. Or what is the same, involves an income of 500,000 euros. To this we must add the 570,000 euros that UEFA disburses to the clubs for each victory in this league (the parrots already have three) and that, at a minimum, Espanyol was guaranteed to receive half a million more. It would be the amount to enter if the Blue and Whites end up as group seconds, which would double, up to one million euros, if they were first.

Pablo Machín himself acknowledged after 6-0 that "beyond prestige, this is an important economic injection. And as we want to help the club, we know that being the first injection will be greater," said the technician.
