Who Will Win The Ballon D'or

By - - [ Sport ]

As most of us are aware, the ballon d'or is one of the most prestigious individual awards in football. Luka Modric won it last year and in this year, we have Lionel Messi from Barcelona and Virgil Van Dijk from Liverpool leading the race for the award. If we look at their individual and club achievements so far we will see that it is difficult to actually pinpoint a winner. 

Messi won the LA liga with Barcelona. He also won the golden boot in LA liga and in the whole of Europe. He was also recently given the award of the best footballer this year by FIFA. 

Van Dijk on the other hand has won the champions league with Liverpool. He helped his team to the most cleensheets in the premier league and champions league. He was also crowned champions league player of the year by UEFA. 

So the question is. Who do you guys think will win the ballon d'or this year?

In my opinion Van Dijk will win the balon do'r because Messi and Ronaldo are given us the same routine performances as there team mates are not as good as them but Van Dijk made Liverpool team better and he was the single reason Liverpool won the champions league.  Just for the fact one player can make such an impact in his first season in a team shows how good he is. If he were to be in Barcelona team I bet they would have won the champions league too, same goes to Juventus. So for being the difference in your team in your first season putsVan Dijk ahead of Messi and Ronaldo.

Leonel messi deserve to win, his performance in Europe was the best last season scoring the heightest goal in Europe. He won the European golden boot and also laliga but losing to Liverpool in the 2nd leg of the UCL and also losing the copal dey rel to Valencia. So messi is also the heightest goal scorer both in the champions league and his domestic league laliga.

Lionel messi will win the ballon dor this year not just because of the latest award he won "The Best". But i think last season was pretty much leo's season despite the exit from the champions league. He did everything right up until that moment. He deserves it 100%

I can't find cristiano Ronaldo in your write up, why is that? The only competition he went to without an award was the champions league last season! For someone that went to a new team, won 2 cups in the first season, helped his team to win the first ever nations league, first player to reach 100 wins in UCL and 125 goals, first player to win 10 UEFA titles, should I go on? I think he deserves the ballon d'or

Come to think of it, in individual achievement in a season. Messi has more than van dikye, beside that messi is a winger while van dikye is center back (CB). So messi deserve the award

Ronaldo deserves these years award, his achievement last season speaks it all, imagine at that age playing in that kind of a leauge for the first time, and winning alot with them, he his also the most valuable player of the season , with portugal also winning the nations leauge, i think deserves it better.

For me,,i would say Lionel Messi. Because that guy is really good, he won Laliga with Barcelona last season,he also led his team to the semi finals of the champions league though they were nocked out by Liverpool,he was also the top scorer in laliga and also Europe,he also led his national team to the semi finals of Copa America.. so judging from this fact i believe he is the best candidate to win the award.

Come to think about it, messi is not only a player but a winger and play maker. Whose whole season with barca was whole to magnificent goals, and awards like pot award and the most recent FIFA men's award, with all this messing deserves to win the balloon d' or

I'm rooting for Messi because that guy is exceptionally talented, any time any day he is still their Master and then szcsec to him should be Ronaldo who is also talented. Messi's talent, to me though, is a gift while C Ronaldo's own is based on hardwork. One of them should be getting that award

Either Messi or Ronaldo will have to do with other titles and the hard work they win this season, number of goal and impact on their both teams.
With my own view I think  Messi gets the upper hand and looks likely to win the ballon d'or

The Ballondor controversy is what I don't like, a times one would wonder what the terms of choosing the right candidates were, and favoritism also plays a role in deciding the winner of the individual honour. I think it should go to C Ronaldo cux he deserves to be crowned for his remarkable achievements. 

Quote

Who will win the Ballon D'or - By Chukwu Christian - 2019-09-26 08:18:59

I basically think messi would likely win it..considering the form he was in last season, goals and assist. 

Ronaldo on the other hand may also win it..he won the serial A title...copper iterlian, euro nation league serial A top scorer, iterlian and Portugal player of the year and lot more.

The battle is definitely between messi and ronaldo again

In my opinion I think I will allow van dijk to win it because he has tried a lot and he helped Liverpool win champions league, he captained Netherlands to nations league final, they didn't dribble him for a whole season, he cleared all the area balls coming to him, nobody had take on on him...

 I think he deserves it so they can use it to encourage other players most especially defenders that they should not think they can't win it.

Balon d'Or is a magazine and the voting is by journalists. These journalists gave their votes to Van Dijk during the FIFA awards. So I think Van Dijk is winning it. Let's not also forget that Barcelona has always been at the top; but Liverpool's fortunes turned around after they acquired Van Dijk. He brought out the best in Matip and Gomez. He's the influence in Liverpool's defence. He went a whole season without being dribbled past, since his arrival at Liverpool, they conceded the least goals for an English team. I think he deserves it.

From the look of things, it's so clear that Messi will win the Baloon d' or. He did exceptionally well last season, and I also think he deserve the award. I am a Ronaldo fan but this time around the award should go Messi.

As for van Dijk, he is a good player and he did very well in the championship league last season and that is why he won UEFA best player of the year, I wish him greater luck nest time.

Liverpool's Virgil Van Dijk is the right player to win this year's ballon d'or with any partiality from FIFA because he really deserve it. It will only be fair if his last season's effort is appreciated by giving him the award. 

Quote

Van Dijk really did exceptional well last season, I would be happy if he's given the title, but I doubt it, I ve a strong feeling Messi will win it, Ronaldo too is good, he may win it, despite his age, he's very hardworking and good at his game. May the best man win.

Quote

Who will win the Ballon D'or - By Adekanola Mayowa - 2019-09-26 14:12:09

Virgil van dijk is the favourite for this year's ballondor ahead of Ronaldo and Messi due to his strong performances for club and country in the year under review, topping it up he won the championsleague which is a major deciding factor 

Quote

Who will win the Ballon D'or - By OWOLABI Ayodeji - 2019-09-26 14:39:33

I'm not doubt in my mind that Lionel Messi will be crowned for the sixth time, because the way that guy is dazzle on the game of round leather is marvel. who could have stopped him is Ronaldo. But fortunate for him he is not among the nominees this season. So it is for Messi.

What u guys don't know is balon d'or is an individual award.. It judges based on how a player has performed the past season. Although Leo Messi and Ronaldo has been taking turns winning the award before Luka modric stepped in, there's no doubt Leo Messi is winning it again this year. Virgil van dijk is a really good player but he only climbed world stage last season and still has to prove himself to be able to win an award as prestigious as the balon d'or 

Quote

Who will win the Ballon D'or - By Daniel Obianusi - 2019-09-26 14:59:06

Lionel Messi was named the best player in the world by FIFA. It's only fair if he wins the Balloon d'or because of his outstanding performances last season. Imagine scoring 52 goals in 51 La Liga appearances! How many players nowadays can do that? Am not counting out Van Dijk but Messi will edge him to win this one

Quote

Who will win the Ballon D'or - By LAWAL SAHEED ADEKUNLE - 2019-09-26 18:14:30

It is obvious that Lionel Messi will win the balloon de'or after achieving the following; La Liga best player, la liga highest goal scorer, Highest player in UEFA champions league, best goal scorer in UEFA champions league, European Golden Boot Award and much more.

I don't have a favourite in this case. I'd have love Vigil to go with that but we all know how good Messi, the GOAT, is. His gentleness, peacefulness, style of play and many other factors will trigger him for this year's Ballon d'O.

Balon dor is given based on individual records 

So between this two contestants, it will be given to the person with higher individual record.

And the person with the higher record is messi.

He won laliga league, he won FIFA player of the year, he won laliga golden boot, he won champions league golden boot.

While vandyk has uefa best  player,champions league best diffender and league.

So to me it will be given to messi

First of all, Virgil Van dijk is a very good and competent player he has won several trophies for his team and for his personal self but still he doesn't deserve to be the winner. 

And as for Ronaldo, the best player, the previous season with juventus has not really favored him. He did not even win the golden boot for the serie a's division.

From the look of everything counting from last season i think lionel messi deserves the balon d'or. He is a very hard working player and has won a lot for his team and his self in person. Though he does not hold good records in his international career but he still deserves to be crown the best player in the world.

For ballon d'or i feel the nominees for this year dont worth it, like their are other players that performed better. For example Bernardo Sliva perform so excellently last season yet nothing.

Ronaldo didnt perform so well

Van dijk is just social media hype

Messi only peformed in the league which all of them did in their various leagues

My pick is aguero from man city cause he has been doing well in the field recently and his always showing a good attitude towards his other man city team mates, and he is relentless in scoring goals and making the man city fans happy

I want Virgil van dijk to win it because he worth it as a defender of one of the most tough clubs in the English premeir league he had so many clean sheets he won the champions league and also the super cup last month so I think he should win it

I think the man who won FIFA best should be the one to win this. Messi gave his all last season his team mates didn't just measured up at both club and country level. I think he will win it. Though van dik  has a chance at it

The two player that are most qualify to win the ballon d'or is nothing more than Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Andres Cussitinni Messi, although van dijk too try as much as possible to nominate to the list of the player for the ballon d'or but he need to improve in his play pattern than before... 

But on  the other side I think Messi has upper hand to win the ballon d'or than Ronaldo 

Quote

No need to argue it. Messi is the favorite for the award. Let me analyse here. Messi scored 32 league goals in 27 appearances. He scored 12 champions league goals in 8 matches and had the highest number of assists. He scored the most free kick which was 8 in a season therefore beating the record of Ronaldinho

The stakes for this years ballon d'or is the highest so far, we see talents like van djik, Lionel messi and christiano ronaldo take the center light in the nominations. Liverpool's Virgil van djik has won uefa best men player while Barcelona's Leo messi winning the FIFA best player, these two are definitely to be watched out for... Personally I think Messi would win

I think Lionel Messi should have the award for his phenomenal performance last season , the little man made football wonderful and interesting last season , the free kicks , dribles, comfort to mention but a few not that van dink was not phenomenal no his was , he made Liverpool a team the are today, his a good defender and player but messi should be awarded the ballon d'or .

Messi is good and he deserves it all. He shouln't be competing with anybody for this. atleast not this time, maybe next year. I like CR7 but he didn't perform up to the task last season.
