Madrid, who would usually be wearing their white home shirt, will be breaking tradition by wearing an all-black strip to commemorate the club's 120th anniversary, as shown by Football Shirt Collective.

Los Blancos have linked up with Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto once again - the same person who designed the club's 2014/15 black third kit - to design a range of merchandise, including a new fourth shirt.

Supporters will also notice that where the Adidas logo would usually feature, it instead features the Y-3 logo alongside Madrid's badge and sponsorship. Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois meanwhile will wear a special pink kit.

Barcelona will also breakaway from their usual navy blue and maroon colours for a special kit according to Spanish journalist Gerard Romero, as per special request of club president Joan Laporta.

The Catalan club's president has apparently requested that Barça wear their famous 'Senyera' kit which was first introduced in 2019.

Its design features the colours of the region of Catalonia -  the region where Barcelona are located. The colours of yellow and red can be seen on the shirt, with the red coming down the kit in three separate stripes.

A win for Carlo Ancelotti's side will further strengthen their lead at the top of the LaLiga table whereas Barça will look to try to cut the gap to their long-standing rivals.

Madrid are currently 10 points clear of closest challengers Sevilla while Xavi's side are third - five points behind the side in second - but have a game in hand.
