RETRO INSPIRED

The design is based on the first shirt the sports brand produced for the Liga giants in 1998

Nike have released a special edition Barcelona shirt they could wear in their Clasico clash with Real Madrid.

The classic retro look takes inspiration from the first time the pair collaborated, at the start of the 1998/99 season when Nike replaced Kappa as their lead manufacturer.

The original shirt was worn by Rivaldo, Pep Guardiola and Patrick Kluivert.

It is the latest shirt Nike have released for the Catalan club. Back in November, they brought out a mashup shirt, which was called ‘the Nike FC Barcelona What The 20th Anniversary Jersey’.

The design combined elements of all Barcelona kits worn by the club over the last two decades.

Luis Suarez scored twice for Barcelona on Wednesday as they beat Real Madrid to reach a sixth consecutive Copa del Rey final, after winning 3-0 and 4-1 on aggregate.

The two sides will meet again at the Bernabeu on Saturday in La Liga, where Barcelona are nine points clear at the top ahead of their opponents.
