Will Ronaldo scoop a record equaling fifth Ballon D’Or?
The last nine consecutive awards have gone to either Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi but can legendary goalkeeper Buffon break the stranglehold of the formidable duo?
His outstanding performances in helping Juventus reach the Champions League final against Real Madrid and his performances in the Serie A may give him a fighting chance.
The halfway point in June saw the top five contenders sitting as:
- N’Golo Kante
- Lionel Messi
- Gianluigi Buffon
- Sergio Ramos
- Cristiano Ronaldo
So who will be named the game’s finest player come awards season in December? We look forward to finding out!
