Bastia were very eager to show off their new camouflage third shirt, so they turned up at Bordeaux looking like one of Mario Balotelli's cars. The players warmed up in their camo tops, but when the referee realized that the dark colors clashed with the home side's shirts, they were ordered to change. This proved to be a problem.

Unfortunately, Bastia didn't think to pack an alternate shirt, so they were forced to borrow plain white training tops from Bordeaux.

With Bastia in white shirts by Puma and white shorts by Kappa, the match went ahead. And just 18 minutes in, the visitors in borrowed shirts opened the scoring with a goal form Junio Tallo.

Bordeaux's Diego Rolan equalized in the 78th minute and Bastia's referee troubles continued when the official missed a blatant handball in the box.

The match ended in a 1-1 draw and Bastia learned a valuable lesson: nothing good comes from trying to play football in camouflage shirts.
