Leo Messi already has the sixth in his vitrinas and is the footballer that more has won of the history. Cristiano Ronaldo there was him empatado does two campaigns, but the Argentinian never surrenders and the past course did spare merits to carry this award.

Virgil Go Dijk finished in second position after completing a fantastic course with the Liverpool. The Dutch was the MVP of the past Premier League and confirmed like the best head office of the world. His arrival to Anfield changed to the 'reds' completely and, with him leading the saga, the ones of Klopp have turned into one of the best teams of Europe. The past year arrived the League of Champions and east seems that it will be the one of the Premier.

For many, also had been just that the Balloon of Gold carried it to him the Dutch. Everything seemed to indicate that the votes had state very equalised between him and Messi, although until this Tuesday has not confirmed . France Football Published the data and, as it expected , the differences between the '10' culé and the '4' 'network' are minimum.

The first place decided by an almost non-existent margin, but yes with a lot of difference regarding the third, that was Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese carried 476 votes to go in in the podium beside Messi and Go Dijk. Sadio Mané And Mohammed Salah, that were fourth or fifth, had 347 and 178, respectively. The figures goleadoras of both were very similar, but the Senegalese left better feelings along the campaign that have served him for this.

After the two 'reds' would arrive Kylian Mbappé, with 89; Alisson, that carried 67; Robert Lewandowski, with 44; the Portuguese Bernardo Silva with other 41; and, finally, another 'citizen' as Riyad Mahrez, that closes the 'top 10' with 33 votes. The Algerian is, in fact, one of the most argued players of the list, since there is the one who does not understand that it have remained above other footballers like the Kun Agüero, Raheem Sterling, Eden Hazard or even Karim Benzema.

The next Balloon of Gold also will be equalised

As it goes the season, the next could be even more contested, since the injuries have done that the '10' culé can not have the numbers of always. Lewandowski, that carries 30 goals in what it goes of campaign, aspires to him, although if Madrid or Barça attain to win the Champions, Karim Benzema and Read also are firm candidates.
