Erling Haaland could consider himself unlucky to miss out on the top 10 after he enjoyed a stupendous goalscoring year. Other slightly surprising ranks include Ruben Dias at 26, Simon Kjaer at 18 and Raheem Sterling at 15.

The top 10 is a star studded list, with Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski, Jorginho, Kante, Karim Benzema, Mohamed Salah, Kevin De Bruyne, Kylian Mbappe and Gianluigi Donnarumma making it.

Lionel Messi is the strong favorite to win it, but he will face stiff competition from the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Jorginho. Although Cristiano Ronaldo made it to the top 10, it looks highly unlikely that he will make it to the top 5.

Robert Lewandowski has been in stunning goalscoring form and was robbed off the award last year. Lionel Messi, on the other hand, played a starring role at the 2021 Copa America and could be winning his 7th Ballon d’Or award tonight.

While the likes of Messi and Ronaldo have usually been well clear of their competition over the last decade, this time it has been much more closely fought. Will Lionel Messi claim his 7th Ballon d’Or award or will Lewandowski win his first one?
