It’s a BIG weekend as the greatest fixture in club football graces Saturday afternoon. Real Madrid will travel to Catalonia to face their arch rivals, FC Barcelona.
It is sure to a thrilling watch, as always when these two Spanish giants clash. Expect passion and intensity combined with both immense physical and technical skills on show during the 90 minutes at Camp Nou.
Whilst there is no doubt that the two sides will be hard to separate in terms of ability on the field, a sense of swagger on their arrival may just mean that Los Blancos have the edge off of it.
Their partnership with Hugo Boss, a fittingly champion designer brand for the European champions, mean that Real Madrid have been kitted out with exquisitely tailored suits for their matchdays. The navy blue suit is from the ‘Create your look line’ from Hugo Boss and is complimented by a pure cotton white shirt and a blue tie.
When added to the subtle-yet-important accessories of a black leather belt and shoes the outfit looks truly slick, meaning that Bale, Ronaldo and company look the business before they’ve even kicked a ball. For these colder months that we find ourselves in, a navy cashmere coat completes the ensemble for the 11-time European champs.
The German designer and the Spanish team has been a great combination, as the squad posed in their new suits for some classy photos earlier on in the season. Barca know their way around some pre-match outfits themselves, famously rocking the double denim combination when travelling as a squad, courtesy of Replay.
Yet, when it comes to looking smart, Zidane’s team are one step ahead – a lead they can add to the six points which they have over their rivals going into this weekend. If Real Madrid play as smart as they will be dressed upon arrival, that lead may just be extended to nine points.
