Players of top Champions League club banned from having sex
The amount of money involved in the Champions League competition makes it a major source of revenue for top clubs around Europe.
As teams progress higher in the tournament, the revenue increases and for this reason, going out of the competition in the group stage is a nightmare for any team.
A recent estimate in the Spanish press say Atletico Madrid could lose at least 25 million euros for failing to leave the Group stage.
Russian side, Spartak Moscow are taking no chances and a report via Mirror Sport, reveals their team doctor has banned players from having sex ahead of their clash with Liverpool in the Champions League.
Liverpool have the upper hand going into the game as they need just one point to go through.
But Spartak have a secret weapon in the shape of Victoria Gameeva who is the cardiologist of the team.
Gameeva, believes sex immediately before a match will hinder Spartak’s players.
In an interview with local media, she said: “From a medical point of view sex stimulates the ability to work only in women.
“In martial arts it happens that a female athlete could fight just five or ten minutes after having sex and her results would be better.
“But it works other way round for men. They should avoid sex two or three days before the football game.”
Gameeva is no stranger to a revealing Instagram post, and admits Spartak players have complimented her after seeing the social media uploads.
But she insists her relationship with players is strictly professional.
“I do not support any type of relations except for patient-doctor,” she added
