The Champions League is the pinnacle of competition for any European club, as they get to prove themselves against the very best on the continent.
This often attracts the biggest and best players who want to show their talents on the main stage, as well as giving a club the chance to lift the biggest club trophy on offer.
However, the Champions League also offers a huge financial incentive for those involved, which can lead to greater investment in transfers and the club as a whole.
Football.London reported that Spurs won around £84.15m last season alone as they made it all the way to the final of the competition.
Following heartbreak in the final, Spurs bought Tanguy Ndombele, their record signing, in the summer, as well as Jack Clarke, Ryan Sessegnon, and Giovani Lo Celso on loan.
UEFA offer each group stage side €15.25m for making it that far, as well as an extra €2.7m per win and €900,000 per draw. This puts Spurs at around £20m already this season (Guardian).
Spurs are then set to receive an additional £8m for reaching the last sixteen.
Reaching the quarter-finals would add another £8.8m, the semi-finals another £10.1m on top of that, the final another £12.6m, and the winner scooping another £4.4m.
