The two strongest leagues at the moment are undoubtedly the Premier League and La Liga. The biggest stars are in Spain, but who would triumph if each put together eleven of their players to face off against the other? I had a go at assembling the sides below, but who would you want to see in the sides for this match?
Given that this is clash between the two countries, I have gone for traditional formations on each side, with the Premier League in a 4-4-2, and La Liga in a 4-3-3.
Premier League: In goal it is a toss up between Manchester City's Joe Hart and Chelsea's Petr Cech. The Englishman has been in sterling form this year, but based on his Champions League winning performances last season, Cech still has the best claim as the strongest keeper in the league.
For the defence I've gone for Ashley Cole at left back and Bacary Sagna at right back, with Vincent Kompany and Thomas Vermaelen giving a Belgian partnership in the middle. Nemanja Vidic always has a strong claim to make a Premiership all star side, but hasn't been injury free for yonks now so misses out.
Given that most of the best midfielders play just behind the striker, I have crowbarred a few players into position in the Premiership midfield. Bale is on the left, with Mata on the right. In the centre I've gone for David Silva and Yaya Toure. I'm sure they can make it work between them.
Upfront there are some big names to miss out, but I reckon the best two strikers in the league are Robin van Persie and Sergio Aguero.
La Liga: In goal there can only be one man competing, Iker Casillas stands out even amongst Spain's plethora of excellent keepers.
The defence is pretty attacking, as you would expect. Dani Alves is at right back, with Marcelo at left back. In the centre I've gone for Pepe and Gerard Pique, though I wouldn't expect them to get along.
The midfield is the Spanish trio of Xavi, Xabi Alonso and Andres Iniesta. There is pretty much no better option in the world, so Toure will have his hands full keeping them quiet.
The front three is ridiculous. Messi, Ronaldo and Falcao. Expect goals.
One thing that is worrying is that the La Liga eleven manages five Spanish players compared to the Premier League's solitary Englishman. In fact more Spaniards make the Premier League side than English players!
Who would you play in this match? Would the Premier League stand a chance?
