Barcelona are aiming to reach the UEFA Champions League semifinals for the first time since 2019 as they take on Paris Saint-Germain tomorrow.

The PSG game will serve as the second leg of the quarterfinal tie, with Barcelona coming on the back of a 3-2 win in the first leg.

Simply a draw, therefore, would be enough for Barça to seal a berth in the semifinal stage, where they will face either Atletico Madrid or Borussia Dortmund.

Barcelona to earn €12.5 million on qualification

A ticket to the UCL semis could go a long way in helping Barcelona somewhat restore the club’s lost glory.

The Catalans, after all, have struggled a lot in European competitions lately. Before this season, they were notably knocked out on UCL group stages for two consecutive campaigns.

However, apart from gaining prestige, Barcelona have a lot more to play for as they host PSG at Estadio Olimpic.

A ticket to the semifinal stage of the Champions League could go a long way in aiding Barcelona’s economic situation, as they would stand to earn €12.5 million if they get past PSG tomorrow, reports Alex Pintanel.

From the face of it, a figure of just €12.5 million might appear minuscule for any top European club. But as far as Barcelona are concerned, it could go a long way in aiding their finances.

It must also be noted that the final figure from a hypothetical UCL semis ticket could add a lot more than just €12.5 million.

That’s because Barcelona would be able to monetise two more matches at the highest level of football and the home game could easily bring in at least €4-5 million in revenue.

The Catalans are facing a precarious situation and are desperate to return to the 1:1 rule in the coming summer. But with Libero still holding back the funds, the club will take every penny they get from other sources.
