Real Madrid will have to play in their black kit during this evening’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich due to a match between them in 2014.
The Spanish side would have been wearing their traditional white kit, but Bayern refused to change their shorts from white to red.
Instead of the Munich club playing in all red, that has now forced Madrid to leave their traditional colours at home.
This comes, according to MARCA, due to the 4-0 thrashing Real Madrid gave Bayern at the Allianz in 2014.
It will be the first time that the Madrid side will not play in white at the Munich club, though it is yet to be seen how much of an impact it will have.
Bayern certainly think it will have an effect and were supposedly not taking any superstitious chances.
MARCA: Real Madrid will wear black kit tonight. Pitch will also be watered before the game, and at the half-time break. #FCBRMA

Bayern Munich will be without star striker Robert Lewandowski for the Real Madrid clash if reports to be believed.
German reports suggest that the Polish star will play no part in the game.
In all competitions, including internationals, he has scored 47 goals and has five assists in 54 appearances.
