Chelsea will stir resentment at the Nou Camp on Tuesday night by wearing an all-white strip to match Barcelona's bitter rivals, Real Madrid.

Jose Mourinho's Real broke Barca's 54-game unbeaten home run with a 2-1 win on Saturday wearing their traditional colours and now Chelsea are following suit.

The first-choice blue strip of Roberto Di Matteo's team clashes with Barca's red and blue stripes but there is nothing to stop them from wearing their black change strip.

However, in a move likely to upset locals, they will turn up looking just like Madrid, who are also kitted out by adidas and who virtually clinched the La Liga title with Saturday's win on enemy turf.

The London club, who wore all yellow on their last Nou Camp visit in 2009, will insist it is not a deliberate attempt to rile their hosts but 90,000 fans are sure to be stoked up by the gesture.
