You've been voting in your hundreds-of-thousands, and the results are in! Check out bundesliga.com/bundesliga.de's Team of the Hinrunde below to find out which players you plumped for in our side of stars of the first half of the season!
Bayer 04 Leverkusen's Mexican megastar won by a landslide in both the @Bundesliga_EN and @bundesliga_de votes, earning 88 and 77 percent of the respective polls. Hertha Berlin's Salomon Kalou finished second, followed by TSG 1899 Hoffenheim's Kevin Volland and Hamburger SV's Pierre-Michel Lasogga.
The Bundesliga's leading scorer was recently voted African Footballer of the Year, and has now received the backing of the bundesliga.com and bundesliga.de Twitter users. He polled nearly 60 per cent on the @bundesliga_EN vote and won by six per cent over FC Bayern München's Robert Lewandowski in the @bundesliga_de poll.
Just as for the left-wing berth, it was a close-run thing. And once again, it was FC Bayern who came out on top. Müller actually lost out to Shinji Kagawa in the @bundesliga_EN poll by a mere 271 votes, but the support he got from @bundesliga_de - winning by 793 votes - helped the Germany international over the line.
With six goals and eights assists to show for 16 Bundesliga appearances so far this term, the six-time Armenian Player of the Year cantered to victory, scooping 62 percent of votes among @Bundesliga_EN users and 56 percent on the @bundesliga_de poll.
It was an extremely close contest between Douglas Costa and Marco Reus, but in the end FC Bayern’s jet-heeled Brazilian just got the nod to fill the left-winger slot in your Team of the Hinrunde. The 25-year-old took 49 per cent of the votes among @Bundesliga_EN users – just three per cent more than Reus – as well as 46 per cent on the @bundesliga_de poll, again just three per cent more than BVB’s Reus.
Borussia Dortmund star Gündogan was the clear favourite of voters in both the @Bundesliga_EN and @bundesliga_de polls. The Germany international picked up 14,747 votes in total, grabbing 55 per cent of the @Bundesliga_EN poll and 50 per cent among voters on @bundesliga_de to secure his position in our Team of the Hinrunde.
Hummels joins fellow FIFA World Cup winner Jerome Boateng at the heart of defence in your Team of the Hinrunde. The 27-year-old ran away with the vote among @Bundesliga_EN users collecting 84 per cent of the poll, whilst amassing 69 per cent on @bundesliga_de.
FIFA World Cup winner Boateng was the unanimous choice as the first centre-back in your Team of the Hinrunde. The 27-year-old's excellent form so far this season helped him scoop a massive 73 per cent of the votes among @Bundesliga_EN users and 74 per cent on @bundesliga_de.
The 32-year-old won by a landslide on our @Bundesliga_EN user poll, scooping 6,701 of 11,358 votes, and also got the thumbs-up from @bundesliga_de voters, ahead of Borussia Dortmund's Matthias Ginter, FC Augsburg's Paul Verhaegh and Hamburger SV's Gotuku Sakai.
Borussia Dortmund left-back Marcel Schmelzer was the standout winner of our poll as the best left-back in the first half of the season. It was a close call between the BVB man and 1. FC Köln's Jonas Hector among users on @bundesliga_de - Schmelzer won out with 30 per cent compared to Hector's 27 per cent - but things were more clear-cut among @bundesliga_EN voters, with the Borussia defender scooping 46 per cent of the votes to win by a comfortable overall margin.
FC Bayern München stopper Manuel Neuer scooped a cool 73 per cent of users' votes on the @bundesliga_EN Twitter channel, with 1. FC Köln's Timo Horn and FC Schalke 04's Ralf Fährmann sharing second place on 11 per cent each. Neuer also came out on top in the @bundesliga_de poll, garnering 51 per cent of votes. Fährmann picked up 21 per cent in that one to take second place ahead of Horn.
Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel came out on top in the @bundesliga_EN poll, finishing ahead of FC Bayern München counterpart Pep Guardiola. It was Hertha Berlin boss Pal Dardai who overwhelmingly won the favours of the @bundesliga_de voters for his efforts in taking the capital club into third at the halfway stage, but Tuchel's 19 per cent in that poll was enough to earn him the place in the dug-out.
