It is no surprise to learn that eight of the 11 players in Opta's team of the Champions League season come from one of the two German finalists - Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

Champions Bayern lead the way with five selections with Arjen Robben's man of the match performance in the final helping him earn the left-midfield berth.

Robben scored four goals, had two assists and attempted 42 dribbles during the Champions League campaign.

Beaten finalists Dortmund have three players in the team including Robert Lewandowski who netted 10 times in the competition.

Cristanio Ronaldo's 12 goals sees him partner the Pole up front and he is joined in the team by Real Madrid team-mate Sergio Ramos.

Barcelona's campaign ended in disappointment at the semi-final stage but Xavi did at least make the team thanks to an astonishing 1299 successful passes.
