If LOSC reach the knockout stages of the Champions League after their last two matches, the differential between a zero point group stage and a warm winter will be at least € 18m!
LOSC can validate its place in the knockout stages of the Champions League against Salzburg at the Pierre-Mauroy stadium, then on December 8 in Wolfsburg. Alongside this sporting issue, the economic appeal of the C1 is also of great interest to the northern club.
According to L’Équipe, the stake is not vital, as the LOSC reduced its payroll by € 12 million between 2020-2021 and 2021-2022, or € 75.5 million. In contrast, qualifying for the knockout stage would put butter in the spinach. And not just a little. The sports daily has calculated that the differential between a group stage without a point and a qualification for the round of 16 will be at least 18 million euros!
And obviously even more if LOSC wins the fifth and sixth matches in Group G. Tonight, it will not be an easy task: Lille has not won any of its last 13 receptions in C1 (6 draws, 7 losses) and could become the first team in history to string together 14 home games without a win.
If LOSC reach the knockout stages of the Champions League after their last two matches, the differential between a zero point group stage and a warm winter will be at least 18 million euros! It’s not nothing.
