The website Footy Hadlines, which habitually leaks football kit designs well before they hit the market and today revealed the third strip which Real Madrid will wear during the 2018-2019 season. The away strip will be bright red with the brand logo and publicity both in white. It will be similar to the red kit which Madrid wore on a few occasions during the 2011-2012 campaign, or the bright pink kit which was trialled in 2014-2015. Madrid have had an all-red kit just twice - the first time during the 1970-1971 season. Since then, the Spanish club have had orange, black and turquoise third strips.
