Deprived of Ballon d’Or 2020 following the health crisis, ‘France Football’ intends to maintain the ceremony this year. English bookmakers already see it as a favorite.

The 2021 Ballon d’Or ceremony will take place on December 5, 2021 and football fans are already looking forward to it. The latest winner is Lionel Messi after winning his 6th Ballon d’Or.

After a monstrous season in 2020, Robert Lewandowski would certainly have been voted best player of the year, but the COVID-19 crisis prevented him from lifting the trophy. English bookmakers decided to have a ‘forecast’ and calculate between performance, popularity and potentially won trophies, to determine who would win this prestigious award in 2021.

According to the bookmakers, Kylian Mbappé would be the big winner seeing PSG win the Champions League. In 2nd position, Robert Lewandowski with the Golden Shoe trophy. Finally, to complete the podium, the bookmakers see the captain of the Selecçao, Cristiano Ronaldo, winning Serie A.

Lionel Messi is classified in 6th position, behind Erling Haaland (4th) and Bruno Fernandes (5th).
