CB: Vincent Kompany v Pepe

Football News

Part of what was so thrilling about the latest edition of 'El Clasico' was that, for the most part, there was a refreshing focus on the quality of football and the abilities of the players involved rather than the irritating and tiresome antics that we can usually witness between these rivals.

The only real flare-up - Sergio Ramos' 19th-career red card aside, of course - occurred just before half-time, when Cesc Fabregas and the much-maligned figure of Pepe both went sprawling to the turf after barely even touching heads.

Despite his habit of infuriating just about everyone with his mind-boggling actions, Pepe still makes the team as a more-accomplished centre-back than Javier Mascherano.

From the Premier League, meanwhile, we have opted for Manchester City captain Kompany - a man of great strength, influence and character who tends to lead by example at the Etihad Stadium.

Who wins?

This isn't a tough one, either - Kompany.

While he has experienced niggling injury worries that have threatened to de-rail City's title bid on more than one occasion so far this season, he still exudes confidence, composure and ability.
