Eagle eyed shirt football connoisseurs have observed that for the past three seasons, the third shirts for both Spanish giants FC Barcelona and Real Madrid have shared a similar tone of colour.
Earlier today Nike and Barça revealed the new third shirt for the 2018/19 season to be worn by the Catalan club and observers on social media were quick to point out the similarity in colour once again rears it's head.
Both teams featured a purple third shirt for the 2016/17 season with a light blue shirt being the colour selected by both clubs last season. Once again this season both sides will wear a similar colour shirt in those occasions when the third shirt is called into action. Coincidence or calculated marketing?
