But now, that 'achievement' is nearly as important as winning the league itself - at least that's what Arsene Wenger would have you believe, so important is qualification to the Champions League. As any Premier League club chairman will testify, this is the tournament where the real money is made. Current champions Bayern Munich banked a cool $65m when they beat domestic rivals Borussia Dortmund at Wembley last May.
