Premier League XI v El Clasico XI - Who wins? (12)

ST: Wayne Rooney v Karim Benzema

Football News

Finally, we come to the position of out-and-out striker. There were a few Premier League players under consideration here, but Rooney - fresh from that audacious lobbed goal from almost halfway against West Ham on Saturday - gets the nod.

Barcelona, led by Messi and Neymar in an attacking sense, do not often operate with a classic central striker, so Benzema - who had admittedly been in good form this season - is chosen without too much of a battle.

Who wins?

With the scores tied at 5-5, this is the all-important clash - one not made any easier by the fact that both men notched a brace during this weekend's action.

However, all things considered, we are going to go with Rooney who has shown more consistency over the years than Benzema.



The slightest of victories for the Premier League XI.
