Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo to land fifth Ballon d'Or

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo to land fifth Ballon d'Or

Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi?

Messi admitted that the fight for the Ballon d'Or has lost some of its flavour after so much success.

Pictures shared on Instagram show the words "Quinto Triumfo", or "fifth triumph" inscribed on the boots.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, has played a key role in Real's four trophy wins in 2017-they also won the Spanish Super Cup and UEFA Super Cup-and could add another before the year is out with Los Blancos favourites to win the upcoming FIFA Club World Cup.

Barcelona superstar, Lionel Messi, has said that he no longer sees individual prizes as a priority after winning the Ballon d'Or award for a record of five times.

Ronaldo has had an indifferent start to the season, while Messi has been absolutely stunning so far.

The Capitals top-line contributed seven points on the three goals. "When we got down, they just seemed to feed off it". The last Chicago win at Washington was January 10, 2006, a 4-3 overtime win for the Blackhawks.

Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde believes the Ballon d'Or has no value.

The Ballon d'Or award is held by France Football and the award is decided based on the votes of top sports journalists across the world.

"The Ballon d'Or is important for us and for Cristiano because it's incredible to be able to win a fifth Ballon d'Or but as I said, for us the most important thing is to be a team and win for the team".

Ronaldo has scored only two goals in the Spanish La Liga this season while in the Champions League he has scored 8 goals.

Messi might have made a blistering start to this season, but Ronaldo for his consistency, important goals and performances in the latter half of the Champions League and La Liga last season definitely deserves to win the 2017 Ballon d'Or award.
