Barcelona and Atlético Forced to Wear Away Kits in Champions League Clash

Update: An unusual sight: as expected, Barcelona took the field at the Camp Nou in all-yellow, with Atlético also wearing its respective away kit. According to Spanish media, both teams will again wear their away kits in Madrid next week.


Both FC Barcelona and Atlético Madrid will wear their respective second kits in the two teams' Champions League clash on Tuesday, UEFA has announced. In the previous two La Liga encounters this season, both teams wore their home kits, although concerns were voiced regarding their similarity.


Barcelona to Wear Away Kit at Home

Those are the jerseys set to be worn by Barcelona (home) and Atlético on Tuesday.



Both of Atlético's 15-16 kits are predominantly dark and 'clash' with Barcelona's home uniform. This means Barcelona will wear the yellow and red away kit at the Camp Nou, instead of this year's navy and red hoops. Atlético will also line up in its away kit, navy, if only to avoid using their home uniform in an away game.



In the return leg in Madrid, Wednesday the following week, Barcelona is expected to utilize either the away or the third kit, while Atlético is all but confirmed to return to its traditional red and white stripes.
