The authoritative portal Goal has published the latest version of its ranking of the main contenders for the Ballon d’Or in 2023.
PSG star Lionel Messi, who became world champion in Argentina in December, remains the main favourite. At the end of the year, Messi can already receive the 8th Ballon d’Or in his career.
If you look further at the evaluation of the Goal portal, then there have been changes in the top 3. Erling Haaland moved Kylian Mbappe to third and finished second.
We remind you that last year the Golden Ball was rightfully won by Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
