UEFA Europa League: Thursday's Preview

Tottenham and Lazio will both be looking to record their first wins in the Europa League group stage when they take to the field on Thursday. Italy's other representative Udinese travel to Glasgow to play Celtic in Group I, while La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid will hope to bounce back from last weekend's 5-0 loss at the hands of Barcelona when they travel to play Rennes. Stoke, Fulham and Birmingham will also look to fly the English flag on Thursday in their respective groups.

The plucky Bretons of Rennes are currently drawn 1-1 with Athletico. And it's all over.. 1-1. My question is who gets the final say on which uniform each team wears? Both teams are wearing a remarkably similar red and black. Rennes are in red shirts with black shorts, and Athletico are black shirts with red shorts. It's a all a bit confusing. Why does this happen so often, and are the refs colour blind?
