Arsenal forced to wear yellow away kit in home game against Basel tonight: This is why
UEFA have ordered the Gunners to wear their yellow kit because their home strip clashes with both Basel's home and away kits.
Basel's red, blue and black home shirt has been deemed too similar to Arsenal's red and white kit, while their away strip is also too similar as it is all white.
Basel do not have a third kit.
A statement on Arsenal's website read: "Uefa have stipulated that Arsenal are required to wear their away kit for this evening's Champions League match."
This is not the first time Arsenal have been ordered to wear an away strip at home.
