Barcelona debut Senyera shirt

Lionel Messi and his teammates have struggled on most of their travels this season and on Sunday go to traditionally one of the most challenging away trips in the campaign. Diego Simeone's Atlético Madrid are having their own problems, despite many followers of Spanish football making them strong contenders for a title tilt, but they will welcome the champions to the Wanda Metropolitano hoping to turn their fortunes around.

For the first time, we will get to see Barça's new strip which features the four red stripes of the Catalan flag on top of the bright yellow background. They say this is 'in honour of the club's roots and history' and that despite growing over the past 120 years to a global brand that can 'build bridges between people' they have 'not lost their sense of Catalan identity, culture and values.'  The shirt was originally launched earlier in the month.
