Manchester United’s kit has been designed with neon red accents as a pointer to the numerous glorious European nights at Old Trafford and that's before you even mention the homage to the patterns used on the adidas x United kits of the 80s and early 90s. Meanwhile, the Real Madrid kit combines night indigo and bright blue colours calling to mind epic UEFA Champions League’s encounters under the Madrid night sky.
