Barcelona are set to wear their new luminescent third kit for the very time in tonight’s Champions League clash against Borussia Monchengladbach.
As well as being made from 16 recycled plastic bottles, the turquoise strip actually gives off a faint glow, designed to “naturally highlight the players underneath the floodlights” during night games.

It’s actually the lighter green-blue “waves” that reflect light back, with a wider “glow band” on the back also designed to hum gently under the lights.
The upshot being that it’s now easier than ever to watch on hopelessly as Lionel Messi, Neymar, Luis Suarez et al rip the absolute ever-loving p*ss out of your defence.
