The crisis of the coronavirus has marked the season 2019-20, and has supposed a serious threat for the world-wide football. After resisting the maximum possible, the sanitary and sportive authorities agreed to stop until further orders, and has been necessary to surpass a confinement and organise strict protocols of security so that the balloon went back to film. Further of the damage to the clubs, the panorama has changed completely.

One of the affected by the pandemia has been the Balloon of Gold, that for the first time in his history will not deliver . The pandemia forced to suspend his edition 2020 because at all it has gone back to be the same. There are championships that have cut , other finalised ahead of time, players lesionados by the fault of rhythm... And a disorder that aimed to a dangerous injustice. In spite of everything, fans and experts ask : Who would have to have it won this year?

THE POLL Who should have won the Golden Ball 2020?

The aim is that the fans pronounce and express his opinion with regard to the best of the campaign attending to the individual performance, although, as it has remained clear in other occasions, the collective trophies also have an important weight. Obviously, the vote will make without taking into account a tournament that is key, a Champions League that it could promote to any one to a final between the favourites. This would be necessary to give more shine to the candidatures of the PSG, of the Liverpool, of Leo Messi or of other applicants that have not been signalled.

The applicants to the Balloon of Gold 2020

Leo Messi

This course looms with remaining in white for Leo Messi, but anybody will touch his record of Balloons of Gold and his performance has been excellent. The captain of the FC Barcelona has not been to 100% and lost some parties to the start of the season by physical problems, but in spite of the requirement and to the wear, follows playing and doing play. In 42 parties has annotated 30 goals and delivered 26 assistances, shooting to another Pichichi, beating the tope of definite passes in LaLiga and being the only beside Jadon Sancho that has surpassed the 20 units in generation of so many. In individual contribution there is little that argue him, but is missing him the support of some big trophy.

Robert Lewandowski

If Robert Lewandowski could win the title, many think that this was his year. The Bayern of Munich has foot and half in quarter-finals of Champions and has won the Bundesliga and the German Glass, although it fell in the final of the Supercopa. The one of Warsaw has been absolutely imparable in spite of that commented that had annoyances in the groin, and that it had to go through the operating theatre in the wintry stop of the competitions germanas. In 43 commitments has contributed the friolera of 51 targets and six assistances with historical series and of record.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo has carried some that another discontent, but has showed to be much more adapted to Italy in his second year in the Series To. Precisely, it has gone back to beat records thanks to his potential realizador in the big leagues, although the sprint of Ciro Immobile left him without the Boot of Gold, something that also him sucedió to Lewandowski. His 31 so many have been vital for the Juventus in the battle by the 'Scudetto', although they escaped the Coppa and the Supercoppa in the final. In total, has celebrated in 35 occasions and delivered seven assistances in 45 meetings.

Karim Benzema

If the Real Madrid has been able to triumph in a season of crazy has been largely by the presence of Karim Benzema, that has assumed responsibilities without a legend like Cristiano. The French has led the attack 'merengue', and was vital in the conquest of LaLiga and of the renewed Supercopa of Spain. To individual level, Messi surpassed his registers in the championship of the regularity, but to collective level the conflict is definitely for the white. His statistics shoot until 26 goals and 11 assistances in 47 apparitions.

Kylian Mbappé

Kylian Mbappé Has been one of the big prejudiced because it Tie it 1 did not arrive to finish , but his numbers are of scandal. As it was to expect, the PSG has won it all, from the league to the Supercopa going through the Glasses of France and of the League. Given the superiority of the 'bleus' in the domestic competitions, what had marked the difference is the Champions, and the one of Bondy arrives lesionado to the final phase. With some parties less in his have, accumulates 30 targets and 18 assistances in 34 commitments.

Sadio Mané

It is difficult to judge to a Liverpool that characterises by the collective contribution, but Sadio Mané was key in the conquest of the Premier. It did 30 years that the 'reds' did not reach the first place, and in Anfield has celebrated to the big in spite of several disappointments that remained on the way. Although they tieed up the Supercopa of Europe and the World-wide of Clubs, the requirement happened bill in the English glasses and the Athletic of Madrid gave the surprise echándo to the ones of Merseyside of the Champions. The Senegalese has contributed 22 goals and 12 assistances in 47 parties.

Neymar Jr

Neymar Has played less than the expected, but by feelings and statistical has confirmed that is between the best of the world. His influence and leadership have left notice in Tie it 1, in the Glass of France and in the Glass of the League, and also in a Champions League in which has an opportunity of gold. Before being able to show if at last the project of the Parisians is smart to step forward in Europe, his mark remains in 24 parties but with some meritorios 19 so many and 10 assistances.

Mohamed Salah

Many say that this has not been the best year of Mohamed Salah, but is indisputable that is one of the references of the Liverpool. His greater contribution, like Sané, has arrived in the Premier League, and also contributed his granite of sand in a Champions that escaped . In spite of his assistance in the Mundialito, remained to zero in FA Cup, Supercopa of Europe and Community Shield, but this did not prevent him arrive until the 23 goals and 13 assistances in 48 meetings.


It is possible to miss to a lot of stars in this selection, but one man's meat is another man's poison. It would be unfair to not to agree of a Boot of Gold like Ciro Immobile, that kept to the Lazio near of the Juventus or won the Supercoppa. Kevin of Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Virgil go Dijk or Sergio Bouquets that has won the same that Karim Benzema and has inflado to mark penaltis could be in the final stages, but for the moment, everything remains in conjectures. Next year, with a calendar compressed and demanding, the battle will go back to contest.
