JUVENTUS TOPS: The AP reported Serie A Juventus topped the Champions League prize money table, collecting more than €65.3M ($86.4M) from UEFA despite losing in the quarterfinals to Bayern Munich. UEFA shared €905M in group-stage payments to 32 teams in the "first of a three-year cycle of commercial contracts." Juventus was helped to the top by a near-€45M ($60M) share of Italian broadcast rights. Serie A AC Milan, "beaten in the last-16 by Barcelona," collected €51.4M ($68M) as "only two Italian clubs reached the group stage and shared the TV payments." Real Madrid got €48.4M ($64M), Barcelona got €45.5M ($60.2M) and Paris St. Germain received €44.7M ($59.1M). ManU, "another last-16 loser," topped English clubs in the Champions League with €35.5M ($47M) (AP, 7/24).
