Oscar v Thiago Alcantara

Once again, there's an embarrassment of riches in this position, but it boils down to a battle between two genuine stars of the future.

Real Madrid don't have a regular starting number 10 because of their prolific 'BBC' - although in seasons to come Isco will surely be their man man.

Bayern could field about five different players in this position including Toni Kroos and Mario Gotze, but Thiago gets the nod from us.


Both of these players have bucketloads of potential and both have other aspects outside the traditional 'playmaker' qualities that make them stand out.

However Thiago just beats off Oscar because of his versatility which means he's comfortable in various different positions. Plus, his technique is second to none.
