It will have to postpone the conquest of the Champions a year more, but Leo Messi keeps on being the firmest applicant to the Balloon of Gold. The crack of the FC Barcelona has completed a remarkable season, and there is not any of his rivals that can approach neither in numbers neither in feelings

Calendar of FC Barcelona

In the last days only has spoken of the elimination of the FC Barcelona of the Champions, but remain titles for playing and the culés treat to go out forward. It does some weeks that sentenced LaLiga, and in addition to expecting for a last round to the Glass of Rey, also are at stake varied of the individual awards of the season 2018-19, whose winner is quite clear-cut.

Although the European disaster is an important hit, Leo Messi is still in head by the Balloon of Gold, a distinction that the past season left him in an incredible fifth place of the classification -Luka Modric was the winner-, that clearly does not correspond with the performance that offers the one of Rosario every time that puts the feet on the terrain of game.

This time, the Argentinian has a lot of numbers to aim his sixth entorchado, a historical attainment with which would break the tie to five that for the moment is supported by Cristiano Ronaldo. It is not entirely certified that the Barcelona go to be the elected, but valuing his performances in what it goes of campaign and attending to the recent surveys, has it quite near.

'L'Équipe' consulted recently to his readers who would have to conquer the spherical this year, and the '10' went back to arrasar. It had 48% of the votes, enough by in front of Virgil go Dijk (19%) or Mohamed Salah (11%), that are between the European finalists that still could aim a title of which marks differences.

But to level of influence, there is not anybody that approach to the data of the attacker barcelonista, neither in statistics neither in feelings. As it has sucedido in a lot of occasions, Messi has showed in numerous meetings a superiority almost insultante, that has served him to guide to his team with 48 goals and 22 assistances in 47 apparitions in all the competitions.

Leo Messi would change the Balloon of Gold by another Champions

As it already recognised it does some months, Leo Messi has an espinita nailed with the Champions, and always has signalled that prefers the collective titles to the individual. This could do that it did not doubt in changing the Balloon of Gold by the 'orejona', since it considers that the personal attainments only arrive on the way to the ambitions of all the group. In some months will have a revancha in the European competition, but in the meantime, could see recognised a year that has been almost perfect.
