Latest Update On The Ballon d’Or Power Rankings: The Favorites Revealed

Update On The Ballon d'Or Power Rankings

Here we bring to you the latest update on the Ballon d’Or power rankings so far after an impressive weekend.

So far, Lionel Messi claims the top spot according to our latest analysis of the update on the Ballon d’Or power rankings. The reason is simple, the Argentine keeps on carrying his club side FC Barcelona. Last weekend, the skipper got them back into the title race by almost single-handedly delivering a 3-2 comeback win against Valencia.

On the other hand, Kylian Mbappe drops to 2nd place following the injury he picked up ahead of the Lens clash. Plus the young French is unlikely to feature against Manchester City on Tuesday, as per RMC Sport, which is potentially a huge blow to the Parisians’ Champions League chances.

Meanwhile, Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland kept their place in 3rd and 4th respectively as they didn’t participate in any game over the weekend.

Cristiano Ronaldo, despite his heroics against Udinese over the weekend, wasn’t enough to move him up to top-five, though.

However, Ilkay Gundogan, who has been brilliant for Manchester City earlier in the season is difficult to ignore, so the German remains just outside the top four.
