Barcelona became the latest European club to reveal their home kit for the upcoming season. As expected the new home jersey features the traditional Blaugrana colours (Red & Blue). However, the Catalan’s have gone back to their roots, as the checkered pattern which was used for this campaign has been replaced by the old fashioned stripes. On the very first look, Barcelona fans compared it to the treble-winning season. Bizarre Real Madrid 2020–21 Kit With Pink Stripes Leaked Online, Fans Disappointed With New Jersey Design (See Pics).
