Barcelona To Wear A Special Anniversary Kit For El Clasico
Barcelona will be kitted out in a special edition kit when they take on Real Madrid for the second time this week on Saturday, following Wednesday's win in the Copa del Rey semi final.
El Clasico is one of the most exciting rivalries in European football, maybe world football, so we're being a bit spoilt this week by having two in the space of a couple of days as Real Madrid and Barcelona get set for Saturday's La Liga game.
At one point in the Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho era it felt like the teams played each other every week but things have calmed down a bit since then.
On Wednesday Barca visited the Bernabeu and were 3-0 winners in the Copa del Rey semi final, getting through to yet another final.
But Real aren't rid of their rivals just yet as once again the league leaders travel to the Spanish capital to take on Los Blancos, this time in La Liga.
If Ernesto Valverde's team win then they will have a 12 point lead over their rivals to celebrate but even before kick off they'll be celebrating.
The club are celebrating their partnership with Nike and their 120th year by wearing a special kit for the big game on the weekend:

Last year Barcelona and Nike produced a mashup shirt of some of the famous kits that the two have produced together, although the shirt was never worn on a matchday.
This time the pair have linked up again to make a tribute to the first kit they did together in the 1998/99 season.
Will Barca be celebrating after the game on Saturday?
