Here are our picks for a Juventus vs Borussia Dortmund combined XI:

GK) Gianluigi Buffon – Juventus

The veteran shot-stopper may be getting on in years, but he is still one of the top goalkeepers in the world.

RB) Stephan Lichtsteiner – Juventus

The Swiss international’s tactics and morals are somewhat questionable, but he is undeniably a player of quality who yields results.

Mats Hummels Borussia Dortmund

CB) Mats Hummels – Borussia Dortmund

Another season blighted with injury, but Hummels remains one of the top centre-backs in Europe, and is sure to attract further attention when the transfer window opens this summer.

CB) Giorgio Chiellini – Juventus 

The Italian star has been an ever present for The Old Lady since his move in 2005, and would walk into almost any team in the world.

LB) Marcel Schmelzer – Borussia Dortmund

A solid performer for the Bundesliga side, defensively superb and pops up with the occasional assist.
