The last four Champions League quarter-final spots will be decided this week and our man in Uefa headquarters (chief operator in the
Steam Pipe Trunk Distribution Venue) has been in touch with news of what the teams will be wearing.
Tuesday, March 12
Juventus v Atlético Madrid
Juve wore their dark change kit in the first leg in Spain and Atlético have returned the favour, though neither was essential, given that Los Colchoneros’ home shirt has a near-solid red back.
Manchester City v Schalke 04
The first leg saw home shirt against home shirt, with City’s change options not providing enough differentiation from Schalke’s blue.
Perhaps as a punishment, City will again wear their alternative white home socks.
Wednesday, March 13
Barcelona v Lyon
Another tie where the away team will have changed in each case, despite there being no need to do so.
Bayern Munich v Liverpool
Nice and straightforward – oddly, Uefa’s documentation shows Liverpool’s third kit as more white than grey and it makes for a nicer kit.
