Ballon d’Or Power Rankings: Robert Lewandowski Ousting Others!

Robert Lewandowski has kept the top spot in our current Ballon d’Or Power rankings, ousting the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Although the Ballon d’Or ceremony is a long time away from the current moment as the results of the coming months will have a huge influence on who will get the prize in January 2022.

Last time, the football’s highest individual prize was canceled much to Robert Lewandowski’s chagrin as the Pole was a huge favorite to win it. But with the way things stand, the Polish striker could still win it this way.

As per Tribuna, here is the current standings in the Ballon d’Or power rankings.

1. Robert Lewandowski

The Bayern Munich forward maintains his top form as they are cruising through the league despite occasional stuttering and they continue in the Champions League. Should the Bundesliga giants go all the way again in Europe, Lewandowski may be forgiven for not winning the German Gup this season as the Bavarians are already out.

Lewy’s Stats for 2021

  • 22 goals
  • 3 assists
  • Club World Cup won

Competitions Left

  • Bundesliga
  • Champions League
  • Euro 2020.

2. Lionel Messi

For all those that think the Argentine is finished, he’s not yet. If anything, the Barcelona captain is in stellar form even if his club isn’t too consistent this season. The diminutive attacker has registered a goal contribution in all of his 12 league games in 2021 as Barcelona reignite their La Liga title charge with Atletico Madrid shaking. However, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner had to endure the absence of Champions League football at Camp Nou for the rest of the season.

Leo’s Stats for 2021

  • 19 goals
  • 8 assists

Competitions Left

  • La Liga
  • Copa del Rey
  • 2021 Copa America

PSG has pushed back on top of the Ligue 1 standings which means a return to normality for Mbappe’s club. Plus the Ligue 1 giants are in the Champions League quarterfinals. The Frenchman notched an incredible four goals in the Barcelona Round of 16 Champions League tie as the Parisians knocked the Catalans out. And he did it in the absence of star man Neymar.

Mbappe’s Stats for 2021

  • 16 goals
  • 2 assists

  • Champions League
  • Euro 2020

4. Erling Haaland

The wunderkind looks anything that his club Borussia Dortmund is not, at least in Bundesliga where the Norwegian’s club is only fifth. Haaland keeps shining and carrying his team on his shoulders as they have a distant chance in the Champions League but their next hurdle is Man City.

Haaland’s Stats for 2021

  • 16 goals
  • 5 assists

Competitons Left

  • Bundesliga
  • DFB-Pokal
  • Champions League

5. Ilkay Gundogan

The only surprise name to appear in the top 5 of this list, but though, it’s for those who don’t follow the Premier League and Manchester City, in particular. However, it is Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne or Sergio Aguero who is the chief star of his team this term. Meanwhile, Gundogan does Aguero’s and De Bruyne’s jobs combined as he often starts upfront scoring a lot of goals but also helps his teammates to score.

Gundogan’s Stats for 2021

  • 12 goals
  • 3 assists

Competitons Left

  • Premier League
  • FA Cup
  • EFL Cup
  • Champions League
  • Euro 2020.
