Spanish giants Barcelona are expected to wear their purple away kit when they square off against defending champions Atletico Madrid today evening in La Liga. Ronald Koeman’s men are coming into this clash on the back of an embarrassing 3-0 defeat in the Champions League- they wore their Senyera jersey in that midweek clash against Benfica.
Barca results in purple jersey in 2021/22 season so far
Athletic Bilbao 1-1 Barca
Cadiz 0-0 Barcelona
As you can see above, Barca have already worn this shirt twice in the league this season- once against Athletic Club and the other against Cadiz, and both fixtures ended in draws.
Atleti gave their new blue third kit its onfield debut against Milan in midweek, and former Barca star Luis Suarez scored a late winner as they won their UCL fixture 2-1.
