Gary Cahill v Dante

The second central defensive spot up for grabs on our team is contested between Gary Cahill and Dante.

The Brazilian isn't one of the more well-known players in a star-studded Bayern team but he's certainly played his part in their success having come from relative obscurity.

Cahill is another player who's come from humble beginnings with Bolton to really emerge as an important cog in the meanest Champions League defence. 

Winner: We're going to give this one to Dante. Cahill is enjoying a good season but at times has been prone to switching off, while the Bayern Munich man has looked pretty consistent over the past two seasons.
