It pays to get to Europe, but it also pays to win the group stage of any of the three European Cups. The Champions League is the most profitable, the Conference League the least. But to get 500,000 euros for 90 minutes of work… Not bad, right? That’s how much they earned on Thursday evening
after Olimpija brought Klaksvik to its knees in the fourth round of the conference league at Stožice.
Olimpija more than deservedly won. Zmaji were better throughout the game. The stats say a lot: 61:30 in possession, 68:21 in offensive actions, 25:5 in shots, 5:2 in corners, 468:180 in assists. Denis Pintol didn’t have to intervene even once, the visitors’ goalie had seven saves! But twice he was still down.
The Dragons were won by David Sualahe and Mustafa Nukić. Both started the match on the substitutes’ bench, the Portuguese scoring eight minutes after coming on and the experienced Ljubljana player 12 minutes after the substitution.
Either way, Olimpija earned an extra half a million euros with the win, and in total has earned almost 3.5 million euros this season playing in Europe. A breakthrough to the group stage of the conference league was worth €2.94 million, a win is worth €500,000 and a draw, which Olimpija doesn’t have yet, is worth €166,000. If Olimpija had finished first in the regular season, it would have received €650,000, and if it had finished second, it would have been €325,000 richer.
