The monumental fixture between two of the biggest football clubs in the world was labelled as the perfect match by some media outlets, and with two of the greatest bosses also going head to head; it certainly made for a mouth-watering prospect.
As it was, the game ended in a stalemate with Cristiano Ronaldo coming back to haunt his old side as he cancelled out Danny Welbeck's opener.
The Bernabéu pitch was graced with some of the world's best players but what if hypothetically the managers had the luxury of picking from both star-studded squads?
Of course, with so many wonderful players available for selection it would be no mean feat but I decided to have a go at picking my dream XI if everyone was fit and able to play right now.
Please remember this is just a bit of fun, and the great thing about football is that it is all about opinions, so if you disagree, feel free to leave your own suggestions.
So without further ado, here are my eleven players to make the cut.
