Barcelona will play in black at Stamford Bridge

The Catalan giants will wear their alternate kit when they travel to London after contacting Uefa in regards to a number of possible jersey clashes with the blue of Chelsea
Barcelona will line-up against Chelsea for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final in their all black kit.

Due to the similarities between the reigning champions current crop of jerseys and the blue of Chelsea, the Catalan club sought the guidance of Uefa in order to avoid a colour clash, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Barca had proposed sporting either the pink or yellow jerseys from previous years; the latter of which was worn in 2008/09 when Andres Iniesta's late winner at Stamford Bridge booked the Blaugrana a spot in the final.

However, the European football governing body told the club that their black kit will be sufficient to provide a noticeable difference between the two sides.
