Make that 

pattern_eur = 'Total amount'

The first argument to re.search() should be a string, not a list of strings:

>>> import re
>>> re.search("foo", "bar")
>>> re.search(["foo"], "bar")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>

    return _compile(pattern, flags).search(string)

    p, loc = _cache[type(pattern), pattern, flags]

This will be your next problem; you are adding 2 to a string.
