First photos of Barcelona’s striking new Champions League kit leaked online
A series of photos of the kit set to be donned by La Liga giants Barcelona when lining out at the Camp Nou in the Champions League this season have come to the fore online.
The subject of kit design has of course taken centre stage at Barca of late.
This comes with the latest efforts put forth by Nike for the 2021/22 campaign having not exactly gone down a treat with the club’s fanbase.

The kit in question, spotted for sale on Monday, is showcased below (photos courtesy of the reliable Footy Headlines):
