Neither Holan nor Mbappe… Ballon d’Or ‘again’ possible frustration ↑

Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain) and Erling Holan (Manchester City), who follow Lionel Messi (Inter Miami) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr), are on the verge of failure again.

Organized by French Football, the Ballon d’Or is the most prestigious award for a soccer player. The award is given to the player who performed the most outstanding performance of the year. Initially, the performance of the year was evaluated, but the evaluation period was changed from August to July of the following year from 2022. It reflects the performance of a season based on European standards.

Messi (seven times) and Ronaldo (five times) have won the Ballon d’Or in recent months. So far, there has been no match to match the two. However, Messi and Ronaldo have left Europe, the center of soccer, and Holan and Mbappe have begun to display robust performances.

However, Holan and Mbappe have yet to win the Ballon d’Or. As winning the Ballon d’Or is essential to becoming the “king” of an era, they both deserve to be greedy. Of course, the outlook is not very bright this year.

Global soccer media outlet Gol Dotum released its 2024 Ballon d’Or power ranking on Tuesday (Korea time). Mbappe and Holan ranked second and third, respectively.

Mbappe has been active this season, but he is playing in the French League 1, which is relatively less competitive. He needs big results such as the UEFA Champions League (UCL) victory.

Ranked third in power, Holan is bombing the European leagues again this season. He is leading the EPL with 18 goals. As Manchester City is also third in the EPL, advanced to the quarterfinals in the UCL and advanced to the semifinals in the FA Cup, the result will determine whether it will win the award or not.

Jude Bellingham (Real Madrid) is currently atop in the power rankings. Midfielder Bellingham has scored 16 goals and three assists in 22 matches in Spain’s Primera Liga this season, leading the scoring position. Real is also leading the league.

The joys and sorrows of Bellingham and Mbappe will be determined in the UCL quarterfinals. Real and PSG will face off in the quarterfinals. The possibility of Bellingham and Mbappe winning the Ballon d’Or will fluctuate depending on whether the two teams advance to the semifinals. 여우알바
