In 'The Best FIFA 2019', Messi, Van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo were the finalists. The Golden Ball will also be played by these three players
The Monday 2 December will deliver the Balloon of Gold 2019 in the Théatre du Châtelet of Paris and France Football already has made public the list of the 30 nominated. A lot of names -between which find three footballers of the FC Barcelona- in the list, although it seems clear that only some of them aspire really to carry the prize.
This next edition of the Balloon of Gold has three clear candidates and are the same that already they went it to carry the The Best FIFA 2019: Leo Messi, star of the FC Barcelona; Virgil go Dijk, defence of the Liverpool; and Cristiano Ronaldo, crack of the Juventus of Turín. In this occasion, the Argentinian surpassed to the Dutch and to the Portuguese.
The Barcelona star was not favourite to carry the renewed 'FIFA World Player', but at the end his mates of profession finish decanting by him, by an extraordinary season in which it proclaimed champion of LaLiga and carried the Boot of Gold. His partidazos in Champions League, where was semifinalist, also can turn into arguments to be Balloon of Gold.
But if there is somebody favourite to raise the trophy, apart from the Argentinian, that is Virgil go Dijk. The defence of the Liverpool has been considered the best defence of the Premier League being, besides, one of the big banners so that the 'reds' proclaimed champions of Europe the past month of June.
Cristiano Ronaldo is the another big candidate to position like finalist. The Portuguese forward, that arrived in 2018 like the big signing crashes of the Juventus of Turín, turned into the leader of the Italian team and carried it, with his goals and his authority, to proclaim again champion of the Scudetto. This yes, seems that it splits with less advantage that Messi or Go Dijk.
Three players of the Barça, between the candidates
Leo Messi is not the only player of the Barça that appears in the list of 30 candidates to carry the Balloon of Gold. Marc-André ter Stegen, Frenkie of Jong and Antoine Griezmann also split like aspiring although, in the case of the Dutch and of the French, is by the merits that did in his previous teams, the Ajax and the Athletic of Madrid, respectively.
