OK catch your breath, people. Was this really just the first round of matches?

The 2012-2013 Champions League has officially started and the first set of matches were full of drama, excitement, late winners, heroes and villains.

We saw some elite players shine to save points for their clubs while others used this stage as their coming-out party.

Considering how many fantastic performances we've seen over the first two days of play, it is incredibly difficult to pick 11 players who have shined above the rest.

Every fan will have a different opinion about a few positions they think could be filled by a player from their favorite team or someone they were impressed with in the first match.

What follows is the best starting XI based on the first two days of Champions League play, but I hope readers respond with who they think should or should not be included.

Please read on to see the best starting XI from round one of the 2012-2013 Champions League.
