Lionel Messi might have started this season in the Ligue 1 with no goal or assist in the three games played for PSG, as he is yet to get a good grasp of the new playing environment. But in all, his performance in the three games played can still get rated above average in terms of tackles won and passing accuracy.
Judging by statistics on who deserves to win the 2021 Ballon D'or, then Messi is the most suitable candidate ahead of Robert Lewandowski, as he has had a terrific performance from late 2020 to the middle of this year.
On the other hand, Robert Lewandowski no doubt is the goal-scoring machine, being the top goal scorer in the Bundesliga and Europe last season and winning the golden shoe is no joke.
Below is Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski's stats for 2021.
From the stats above, it can get seen that Lionel Messi deserves to win the 2021 Ballon D'or ahead of Robert Lewandowski despite Lewandowski having more goals than Messi.
