Although it is true that in the last diverse hours Italian means had ensured that Cristiano Ronaldo will be the winner of the Balloon of Gold 2019, can that after the new exhibition of Leo Messi this Tuesday against the Real Valladolid (5-1) have to back. Because think at least in the possibility that it was the Portuguese and no the Argentinian the one who carry the prestigious prize of 'France Football', seen the seen, sounds to joke of bad taste.

Messi has more right that all the other nominated to demand the award, and if it goes directed to the best footballer already can go recording the name of 'The Flea' in the trophy. Two goals, two assistances, two sublime pipes and played of pure magic were part of the 'show' of the '10' this Tuesday in a Camp Nou delivered, that him ovacionó in more than an occasion along the meeting.

It does not be necessary desmerecer the big work of players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Virgil go Dijk -those who probably accompany him in the podium-, but any of the two can compare with the rosarino of the Barça. To his 32 years, Messi has it everything in favour to conquer the one who will be the sixth Balloon of Gold of his career, with which will go back to break the debatable equality of prizes with 'CR7'.

Since it returned of his injury, has gone taking the competitive rhythm party to party and, to these heights, can say that is near to reach his best level. Still it can offer much more, but even so practically any player in the world could equalise the performance of the Argentinian in front of the group pucelano. Able to surprise to all and sundry in spite of all his gestas, Messi follows without having ceiling.

Messi has done more merits that anybody

The next 2 December, the Argentinian sucederá with all security to Luka Modric like winner of the Balloon of Gold, after having conquered already the FIFA The Best when the majority expected that it carried it to him Go Dijk, by his performance with the Liverpool and Holland. But there are times in that win the Champions League does not suffice, and the merits of Messi are more than sufficient to surpass to the defender 'oranje'.

Pichichi The year happened in League and Champions, Boot of European Gold, one of the maximum assistants of the continent, better playmaker, winner of a new League with the Barça, finalist in Glass of Rey and semifinalist in Champions and in Glass America with Argentina. True is that to Messi removed him the honey of the lips in more than an occasion, but even so it was the best player of the season. All what was to not to give him the Balloon of Gold 2019 will be an injustice, and will serve to reward more the collective titles -as the Champions or the Nations League- instead of the individual performance. That it is, in theory, of what goes the prize.
