The first half of the 2015/16 Bundesliga season will go down in history. A whole host of records were smashed in one of the most spectacular Hinrunden of all time, and you voted FC Bayern München's Jerome Boateng as your first centre-back in our dream XI.
FIFA World Cup winner Boateng was the unanimous choice as the first centre-back in your Team of the Hinrunde. The 27-year-old scooped a massive 73 per cent of the votes among @Bundesliga_EN users and 74 per cent on @bundesliga_de. The cultured defender has truly been at the peak of his powers this season, helping Bayern establish an eight-point lead at the top of the table with just eight goals conceded in 17 matches.
Remember: The winner is the man who picks up the most votes from both the @Bundesliga_EN and @bundesliga_de polls combined.
Club: FC Bayern München
