The ballon d'or is a prestigious award in the world of football given to the player who performed best statistically in a period of one year.
The two greatest football players of our generation, sometimes seen as the greatest footballers since the history of football, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have won the award for a combined eleven (11) times.
Messi has won it for 6 (six) times while Ronaldo has 5 (five), actually the highest figures in football history.
But, in the current ranking called 'the top 10 power rankings' prepared by Goal.com, Ronaldo is placed second, two places ahead of Messi who was placed 4th (fourth) on the log.
