Opinion: Winning The UCL Title At The End Of This Season Can Win Erling Haaland A Ballon D'Or Award

At the end of the last FIFA World Cup in Qatar, some football fans around the world believe that Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé are likely the players to compete for the 2023 FIFA Balloon D'Or award. Both Lionel Messi and Mbappé played at the final of FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The fact that these two players were unable to proceed beyond the round of 16 of the ongoing UEFA Champions League competition has reduced their chances of winning the award.

As it stands right now, Erling Haaland is one of the favorites to win the 2023 FIFA Ballon d'or award. The Norwegian international was not at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, but he has been in an incredible form this season across all competitions. He's literally scoring goals for fun, both in the English Premier League and the UEFA Champions League.

Erling Haaland's Manchester City may win the English Premier League title this season, but if they win the UEFA Champions League title, Erling Haaland may be rewarded with his first FIFA Ballon d'or award.

Erling Haaland is likely to end up as the English Premier League's top scorer and the UEFA Champions League's top scorer. If Manchester City win the ongoing Europa Champions League title, then Haaland will start a better chance of winning the 2023 FIFA Ballon D'Or Award.

Can he really win it against Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé?
