Merseyside outfit Liverpool are yet to win the Champions League title but they have started pocketing some cash benefits after reports claim that they already have £80 windfall just for reaching the semi-final of the competition.

A Football insider report claims that for defeating Porto in the quarterfinals, the Merseyside outfit were guaranteed a fresh cash boost of £10-4 million which adds to their revenues.

According to UEFA Champions League distribution data, the Reds team will receive prize money of £47.5 million for reaching the semi-final which is expected to be increased by what is earned from TV pool.

However, the £80 million windfalls are already more than the £67.6 million they earned reaching the finals last season which is no doubt a big financial boost to the team.

Meanwhile, there are suggestions that the main target of the team and their management is to win a title this season and they have set their sight on winning a double.

With a semi-final in the Champions League and a 2 points lead in the English Premier League, the Reds team are at a big advantage to land at least a title this season as consolidation for their miss for their defeat in the finals last season.
