According to Betting Aggregator Oddschecker the three wise men of Liverpool are more likely to win the 2019 Ballon d’Or than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Lionel Messi is in the best position to win the prestigious individual award following his remarkable goal-scoring heroics for Barcelona. He’s scored a stunning 50 goals in all competitions with one game remaining that is, Copa del Rey final. The Barcelona star is priced at 1/2 with the next three players on the list all hailing from Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
Also the PFA Players’ Player of the Year, Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are all in the top five and ahead of Ronaldo, who scored 21 Serie A goals in his debut season in Italy.
Tim Cahill is hoping the Juventus superstar to win the Ballon d’Or. “the reason why I say Ronaldo, I know people won’t agree, is because of what he’s done in Juventus. He left Real Madrid, went there and had such a massive impact on another league. I’ve never seen another player do it at Man United, Madrid for so many years. And I know he didn’t win the Champions League, but he has such an impact in any club. If you can take players and put them somewhere at his age. I know people won’t agree; I just appreciate his professionalism.”
However, Kylian Mbappe believes that the best player for the Ballon d’Or is Messi. “the favourite [for the Ballon d’Or] is Messi. The elimination in Champions does not change anything, he is the number one in everything. He has shown this year that he is the best player and although the year goes until December, I’m not worried about him, he’s going to play until December.”
