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. But who were the standout players? You have decided that Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez should partner Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in an exhilarating Team of the Hinrunde attack.
His first five months in German football are what dreams are made of: 11 goals since arriving on 31 August, 19 in 25 games in all competitions. The Mexican came with a reputation, and he has polished it even further in the Bundesliga. Unsurprisingly, the bundesliga.com Player of the Month for December has made it into your Team of the Hinrunde, partnering Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in an attack which would have defenders' legs turn to jelly.
The winner is the man with most votes from both the @Bundesliga_EN and @bundesliga_de polls combined.
