With just a few hours until the Ballon d’Or is given out, a rumour has circulated around the internet. Someone has leaked the supposed 2019 Ballon d’Or results, confirming the predictions of many: Messi will beat Van Dijk.
After a week full of rumours saying who the next Ballon d’Or winner will be, this supposed leak, which seems to be echoed by practically all sports media, seems to confirm what many predicted.
In the photo that seems to be the 2019 Ballon d’Or rankings, Messi can be seen as the winner with 446 points.
He is followed by Virgil van Dijk, the other big favourite, with 382 points. If this is true, we will have quite a close Ballon d’Or, the tightest since FIFA and ‘France Football’ took different paths.
The ceremony is set to take place on Monday, December 2 at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris at 7.30pm.
