PHOTOS: Barca 2019/20 season home & away jersey leaked

La Liga By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 07/12/2018

 

Barcelona home and away jersey for the 2019-20 season has been leaked according to a report from Spain.

Blaugrana are currently sitting on top of the La Liga table with 28 points from 14 matches as they battle Espanyol in the Catalonia derby over the weekend.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona will break from tradition classic red and blue colour in the classic stripes to checked pattern in the new design but this kit is reminiscent of Croatia's popular home shirts, which have been designed since 2000 by Barcelona's shirt manufacturers Nike. 

Meanwhile, the rumoured away kit is a yellow design with red and blue diagonal stripes, which recalls the away kit worn by Johan Cruyff and co. in the 1970s but Barcelona also wore a similar design with the stripe going vertically down the left side of the shirt rather than diagonally during the 2008/09 season.

That shirt is synonymous with Andres Iniesta's late equaliser against Chelsea in the semi-finals of the Champions League at Stamford Bridge that year and the La Liga Champions won a historic treble under Pep Guardiola.
