Golden Globe Ranking:The 2020 Ballon d’Or was forced to be cancelled due to the epidemic, but this year the best players from around the world will take on the award. The award will not be presented until December this year, and players still have a few months to perform, eager to snatch the trophy from 19-year Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi. Below Blkids will rank what they think are the top 10 players.
Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)
2021: 28 goals, 11 assists.
Benzema was a no-brainer at the start of the 2021-22 season, as the French striker has scored five goals and contributed six assists in his first five La Liga games so far this season.
He is one of the biggest names in La Liga right now, and if any La Liga player can claim this honor, it will surely be him.
Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea)
2021: 29 goals, 8 assists, won the Serie A title.
Lukaku’s role in Chelsea’s bridgehead is becoming more and more obvious, with all-round ability becoming his label. We’ll see if the little beast can reach the heights of his predecessor Drogba.
Erling Harland (Borussia Dortmund)
2021: 41 goals, 13 assists, won the German Cup.
After not being able to play in the Euros due to France’s early exit and the other potential Ballon d’Or winners’ lackluster performances, which brought Harland closer to them, the Dortmund striker is still in hot form.
He already has seven goals and four assists in five Bundesliga games this season, while he also collected a Champions League goal against Besiktas.
Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain)
2021: 33 goals, 11 assists, won the Coupe de France and the French Super Cup.
The addition of Lionel Messi has made Mbappe more determined to make his way out, and has still been playing well at the start of the season, but seems to be in a bit of trouble lately. Let’s see if he can adjust his form in time to make an impact on the Ballon d’Or.
Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)
2021: 10 goals, 11 assists, won the Premier League and League Cup
For De Bruyne, still not over the Champions League loss from last season, his form is not too good in the new season and injuries continue to plague him.
Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United)
2021: 33 goals, 4 assists, won Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana
Many thought Cairo’s return to Manchester United was sentimental, then the three-time World Footballer of the Year winner will tell you that the old man’s ambition is to keep up his current form after scoring four goals in his first three games at Old Trafford.
Whether Cairo can lead his team to win the Premier League or other trophies next, the Portuguese has so far proved that he is not back for retirement with his actions.
N’Golo Kante (Chelsea)
2021: 1 goal, 1 assist, won Champions League and UEFA Super Cup
Came on as a substitute against Tottenham on Sunday and immediately changed the game and scored a goal.
Low profile is his label, but those who have the ability will always shine to attract attention, the master of N’Golo Kante’s inspirational story and a big treasure for fans around the world. “This is the highest praise for a defensive player, the world’s number one defender.
2021: 5 goals, 2 assists, won the Euro 2020, Champions League and UEFA Super Cup.
Although he was teased as “Maurizio Sarri’s godson”, he proved himself with an almost perfect performance, but for some he is still a ball-blind filter, but it is undeniable that his chances of winning the Ballon d’Or are relatively high.
The UEFA Player of the Year is definitely a strong contender for this award.
Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)
2021: 48 goals, 7 assists, won the Bundesliga, Club World Cup and German Super Cup.
Lewandowski is still the world’s number one striker in terms of performance at the start of the season, scoring 11 goals in just 7 games and scoring in 19 consecutive games for Bayern in all competitions.
If he can continue this form into December, he has a chance to make up for last season and win this honor for the first time.
Lionel Messi (Paris Saint-Germain)
2021: 36 goals, 14 assists, won Copa America and Copa del Rey.
After leading Argentina to win the Copa America and winning the best player, this year’s Ballon d’Or winner seems to be calling for a winner. Perhaps the number 7 is a hurdle, the king of Camp Nou left his throne to embark on a new journey, the Parc des Princes to welcome the king’s arrival, perhaps probably probably unsuitable for water and soil, the king seems to have aged, unable to integrate into the new environment coupled with the onslaught of injuries, casting a shadow over his impact on the seventh Ballon d’Or.
