Premier League XI v El Clasico XI - Who wins? (10)

LM: Adam Lallana v Gareth Bale

Football News

Lallana's position in such an XI may have been unthinkable prior to the start of this season, but in truth the Southampton 'skipper has been nothing short of sensational at St Mary's under Mauricio Pochettino, forcing himself into the England reckoning where he is surely likely to stay for the upcoming World Cup.

In direct competition with him for the purposes of this exercise is former Saint Bale, whose career began on the South Coast and took in a successful stint at Tottenham before a world-record transfer to Real Madrid last summer saw him become the most-expensive player the game has ever seen.

Bale just edges out Neymar as the El Clasico representative, with the Brazilian not having quite managed to produce his best form at the Camp Nou as of yet.

Who wins?

Despite Lallana's stellar showings, he doesn't quite compete on the same level as the talismanic Welshman.

Bale may have had a relatively quiet game against Barcelona on Sunday night, yet there is no doubting his capabilities and he has connected very well indeed with Ronaldo and Karim Benzema in attack.

Bale it is.
