Who would win Ballon d'or 2018?
The 2018 Ballon D'or award is coming up on 3rd December, 2018 with possible footballers being tipped to win the highest individual football award.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have 5 Ballon D 'or to themselves and they are still in line to win another. But there are lots of rumors going on that the award would be won by either Luka Modric or Kylian Mbappe or Eden Hazard.

Who do you think would win the award in December 3rd, 2018?

Whoever it is, I'm fine with it. I just wish though that Cristiano can still bag the award as I am a big fan of him. Yes, I am biased. Lol.

Christiano may bag it if juve perform extremely well at the uefa and italy serie a with him leading the pack in goalscoring. He is a late bloomer as far as uefa is concerned so I would not judge his performance yet but still waiting for his proper impact on the serie a.

If Ballon D'or award is given for the world cup performances I think Luka Modric and Kylian Mbappe are the highest contenders, I am in favor of Mbappe as he is from the winning team.

But the Ballon d'or award is given to players for their performances as an individual, not for their World Cup performances.

Whether you like it or not, Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi has a high probability of being awarded again.

The Ballon D Or is given to the players that have highly contributed to the teams that they were in and helped them to both bag trophies and they should also display some excellent skills on the field. I do not see any reason why Modric should not be considered.

Luka modric may well get ahead of mbappe and take it since he has already been spotted and given other awards for the year as a result of his impact in the world cup. I think that they should nonetheless consider performance of players since then.

I hope Kylian Mbappe would be able to win the Ballon D'or. He had such a great performance in his career for the 2018 season. One thing I do enjoy about what he has done is the strength and power that he holds. Knowing he is ONLY 18 years old and what he has already accomplish is something unbelievable and amazing that you can't see such great talent except for him. Winning the world cup and winning the Ballon D'or will be one of his greatest achievements.

I agree with you. Kylian Mbappe performed well, in fact if he was not playing, I would not think France would win the World Cup. He is also young and I can imagine how he would be improving his performance in the future. Messi and Ronaldo are now too world for the game like football. Of course they are great players, however, they have never performed well for theri countries in the world cup

France has a couple of great players who played as a unit to influence their winning of the world cup which is why it is not just mbappe that contributed to the win. I like the young man but I still do think that he will have the award maybe as from two years from now.

Kyllian will still be an excellent choice for the award but I think that he has a very long period to play and thus the awards are still in store for him even if he fails to win the one for this year. he is an excellent young player and we need more of his excellent performance.

I am not a fan of football since it's not that popular in our country until the Philippine Azkals arrived. I hope Christiano Ronaldo bags the price since I know him more than any other football players in their league.

You are hoping for Ronaldo because you recognize him. I know Messi better and he is a wonderful player who has bagged this award 5 times. However, I am not for Messi or Ronaldo. I see possibilites in Kylian Mbappe.

i also hope to see other players being given the award and not just the monotonous messi or ronaldo as people have already gotten used to their wins. Let it go to someoen else in the game whose heroics are great but not much appreciated.

hehehe. It seems like the ronaldo messi battle is still on as it has been for the longest time and we may witness it yet again this year. It will be funny nonetheless as t6he individuals have not bagged any big awards yet.

I would vouch for Lionel Messi. Cannot take him our of the game. His skills are just unmatched. The way he plays football is amazing and he is also very selfless player. He always looks for chances to score a goal and does not miss out on any single chance.

Messi has not had that much of a contribution as he had years ago which means that the chance should be offered to other players that have lifted their teams high up as they chase various trophies either in their clubs or national teams.

Lionel Messi will still be my pick for the one who will win the award. As a fan we always see how good he is on that sports and there's no one ever equal that.

I hope Messi will be the one to being home the Ballon D'. I have heard a lot of good news about him and I do think that he deserves it. Also, I have seen his undeniable skills in playing and so I think he deserves it.

Christiano Ronaldo is still my bet. This man was born with the ball on the leg. He is smart in the field. He should win the award.

It is time to move on from the ronaldo monotony as the guy is nearing his retirement and we need new super players that we can look upon as we near 2020 and beyond who will amaze us with their footballing capabilities.

I'm predicting another Christiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi win. Considering that they have the most contributions to football individually.

Oooooooh Finally! A topic on football. I do not know what you are on today my friends but this topic is just the bomb we needed over here since we have discussed almost everthing else. That being said and me being a chelsea fan I am rooting for none other than eden hazard but that might be hard seeing as belgium have failed to qualify for the finals of the european nations cup. The other next best choice would be Harry kane if england go on to win it.

I have no real idea! I don't follow football a great deal so it's not really a sporting award that I can comment sufficiently on!

I agree with you. If you're not a fan of that sport or if you're living in a country where that sport is not that popular, it's hard to give an appropriate comments. However, we are all entitled to our own opinions and there's nothing wrong with that.

I would vote for Eden Hazard. I hope he gets it this year. He had a pretty much incredible run this year and I think he would deserve it.

I have no idea on the possible award winner because I don’t have a good knowledge of soccer players. We also have a soccer team here called Azkals that is led by a British named Phil Younghusband. He is like the spark plug of the team because admittedly he is the best player in the team. As with the popular international football players I guess I cannot take a pick for I might be wrong.
