Ballon D'or is a galla award held every year to recognize the best football player who put all effort to make sure that his team reached a certain stage in the season.
Lionel Messi has won the award a record six times while playing for Barcelona, followed by Cristiano Ronaldo, who has won five (one with Manchester United and four with Real Madrid).
In 2018 Ballon d'or a dominant of Cristiano and Messi were broken by Real Madrid and Croatia player, Luka Modric when he was announced the winner after his performance in last world cup after taking his country to a second place.
2020 award may see other changes after good performance from some players, but the good part of this award is that the award only goes to one player.
We are going to look the possibilities of these Four (4) players of winning this year award.
1. Lionel Messi
Lionel Messi has done tremendously well by taking his team to next season champions league. Meanwhile, despite not winning this season Laliga trophy Messi contribution to Barcelona this season is noticeable.
Lionel Messi has scored 23 goals and having 20 assist for this season making him the highest goal scorer and most assist, Laliga 2019/2020 season remain one match to go which will be played on Sunday.
Barcelona will face Napoli in their next Champions League fixture on August 8. If Barcelona went ahead to win these year Champions League I don, 't see anything that will deprive Lionel Messi from crowning this year Ballon d'or award.
Robert Lewandoski will be another major contender of this year Ballon D'or after helping his team to secure another Bundesliga trophy. Lewandoski who massively netted 34 League goals these 2019/2020 Bundesliga season and also have 4 assist to his name which make him the most goal scorer in Europe this season. Meanwhile, this season still on for some league but am not seeing any player scoring more league goals than Lewandoski this season.
Bayern Munich will be hosting Chelsea in their next Champions League fixture on 8 August 2020. If Bayern Munich went ahead to win these year Champions League definitely Lewandoski may be laughing home with this year Ballon d'or award.
3. Karim Benzema
Karim Benzema may not be a strong contender for this year Ballon d'or but that those not mean that his hard work he put in place to help his team to win the is season Laliga trophy despite remaining one match before the current Laliga season.
Benzema has scored 21 goals already this season and also has 8 assist making him the second highest goal scorer in Laliga this season.
His relentless effort this season were noticeable after the loses their main man, Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus two seasons ago.
Real Madrid is already out of Champions League.
4. Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo will be another big contender of this year Ballon d'or. Currently, Juventus is topping Serie A log with 6 points, the Serie A 2019/2020 season remain 5 matches to go.
Cristiano Ronaldo is second highest goal scorer in the league, netting already 28 goals and 5 assists with 1 goals behind the top scorer.
If Juventus win Champions League there are possibilities that Cristiano Ronaldo may emerge as the winner of this year Ballon d'or to equal Messi with the most winner of the award.
