The truth is that the European competition grants 300,000 euros to each team for playing in the group stage. A sum that the white team has already achieved by qualifying for said tournament, but it does not stop there, since the profits can increase considerably depending on the performance of a team in the tournament.
Thus, for each match won, 50,000 euros are awarded and for a draw, 17,000 euros. In this way, the team led by Alberto Toril has only managed to score one point thanks to a draw against Chelsea. Therefore, so far it has achieved 317.00 euros, although they still have one last bullet to increase that figure.

Häcken will be the last team that Real Madrid faces in the Champions League, that is, the last opportunity to increase their profits.

Now, with the low temperatures giving Spain a respite, Real Madrid receives the Swedish team with its mind set on victory.
The objective is to take the three points, and not because they are going to have a chance in the competition, since they are mathematically eliminated, but because victory would inject 50,000 euros more into their accounts than what they have already received in the Champions League. That is, the European competition would grant the white club 367,000 euros.
