The home kit was unchanged from 1999-2000 and while the new change strip might look to have have too much red, there do not appear to have been any issues. In European games, the number was housed in a white box while away to Paris Saint-Germain the home socks were used.

In the first Champions League group stage, the normal home kit was worn but a new strip was introduced for the second group stage. It harked back to the crew-neck style of Bayern’s European Cup three-in-a-row of 1974-76 and proved a lucky omen as they went all the way, defeating Valencia on penalties in the final.

The silver third kit was used against Arsenal and Manchester United during the European campaign – the Opel logo was now rendered in white while the names and numbers from the new red kit were used.
