Although it is true that the FC Barcelona has not finished the season 2018-19 as it wished, Leo Messi keeps on being to day of today the big favourite to do with the Balloon of Gold 2019. The rosarino has won LaLiga Santander, arrived until the final of Glass of Rey and fell with the FC Barcelona in semifinals of the Champions League, erigiéndose besides as 'Pichichi' and Boot of Gold with his 36 targets in League.

They do not seem sufficient merits for Tim Cahill, ex player and legend of the Australian selection of football, the one who thinks that Cristiano Ronaldo deserves more the Balloon of Gold that the '10' of the Barça. In an interview to the half catarí 'Alkass Sport', stands out the atrevimiento and the courage of the Portuguese when having given the jump to the Juventus of Turín and to a new league, that is the fourth in which it plays.

"Cristiano deserves the Balloon of Gold more than Messi. It went out of his zone of comfort in the Real Madrid and had an enormous impact in another league. Portugal, England, Spain, Italy... Never I have seen at all like this, I know that the people does not agree, but he deserves the Balloon of Gold by what has done in the Juventus. I admire his professionalism", has argued Cahill.

The fact that Leo Messi have shined above the rest in the FC Barcelona does not seem sufficient reason so that the rosarino deserve the award, although this will have to decide it the journalists of the magazine 'France Football', attendant to deliver the prize.

Cristiano Ronaldo has marked 28 goals in 43 parties in his first season in the Juventus. The footballer luso has achieved the Scudetto, has arrived to quarter-finals of Champions League and of the Coppa Italy. His numbers and registers are inferior to the ones of Leo Messi, and in theory would not have to be rival for a Messi that has annotated 51 targets in the global of all the competitions.

The Glass America can be key for Messi

The debate will follow opened until it deliver the prize in the next months, but fits to stand out that this edition will be one of the most equalised in the last years. Also they will be involved some stars of Liverpool and Tottenham, the two finalists of the Champions League. Although, if Leo Messi attains a big gesta with Argentina in the Glass America 2019, no longer there will be anybody that can remove him the trophy of the hands.
