Lyon held Barcelona to a scoreless draw and will now head to Barcelona. They may only need a score draw to progress but it seems a tall order. Barcelona have been 2nd three times in the last five editions of the DFML. DFML shows that Barcelona have total revenues of €690m and a similar distribution of revenues to Real Madrid (i.e. Commercial, Broadcast, and Matchday). In the case of Barcelona, they benefitted from a new four-year deal with Rakuten (there was a time when they spun a different story about shirt sponsorship).
Porto are the third club not to have featured in the Top-20 revenue generating clubs in the DFML. Porto lost 2-1 away to Roma. The gap between the two clubs is narrower than in the other two cases. There opponents, Roma, have only broke into the Top-20 on three occasions (twice at 15th and once at 16th).
Tonight Schalke 04 host Manchester City in one game and Atletico host Juventus in the other game. The away sides have better revenue generating records. It may count for little on a given night. However, it would be natural to expect those with the deeper pockets to advance.
