Find out why Real Madrid gave up its white color against Barcelona in the "El Clasico"

There was a state of controversy over the reason why Real Madrid and Barcelona did not wear their usual colors in the El Clásico match that started on Sunday evening at the “Santiago Bernabeu” stadium at the top of the 29th round of the Spanish League.

Real Madrid did not wear the traditional white color, and appeared in full black shirts, which is the fourth shirt this season, while goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois wore pink.

According to the Spanish newspaper "AS", the new uniform is part of a new collection designed by the German company "Adidas" for sports supplies, to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the founding of Real Madrid.

Real Madrid celebrates its founding anniversary on the sixth of March of each year, and the new uniform was issued to celebrate this occasion, and the Royal Club did not find a better occasion than the Clasico match for the appearance of the uniform for the first time.

Of course, the black shirt will make Barcelona change its red and blue kit, to wear the yellow shirt, which is the second color of the team, because Real Madrid is the owner of the stadium.

The new Real Madrid uniform is designed by Yuji Yamamoto, one of the most prominent Japanese designers, and was already presented by the black shirt of the Royal Club in the 201-15 season.

And the last match in which Real Madrid did not wear white in the “El Clasico” match against Barcelona was the 2017-2018 season, specifically in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup, when Real Madrid won 3-1 at the “Camp Nou” stadium, and Real Madrid scored goals every From Cristiano Ronaldo, Marco Asensio, and Gerard Pique with an own goal.
