Benzema Ballon d’Or ahead of Messi?

The group stage of the Champions League can still allow Karim Benzema to be crowned Ballon d’Or at the expense of Lionel Messi. At least, that’s the opinion of Raymond Domenech.

Is there still an ounce of suspense for the 2021 Ballon d’Or winner? Lionel Messi, who won the Copa América with Argentina last summer, is expected to win by a large margin next December, after the vote organized by France Football, despite the magnificent double Champions League-Euro 2020 of Jorginho with Chelsea and the Italian selection.

However, for Raymond Domenech, the first matches of the Champions League could redistribute the cards and thus allow Karim Benzema to believe in an individual coronation … ” Somehow, the Champions League matches are going to make the difference. There will be the match against Belgium and possibly a League of Nations final. If we win this event, he has a chance to be there and be present “, Launched the former coach of the France team on the channel L’Equipe, about a striker he had launched with the Blues in 2007.

Benzema dreams of the Ballon d’Or, but …

Always so sparkling at 34 years old, “KB9” remains on a breathtaking season with the Real Madrid, with 30 goals in all competitions, and then scored 4 goals during the Euro with a selection of Didier Deschamps stopped much too early (in the round of 16 of the competition against Switzerland on penalties). Benzema is already at 5 goals in 4 La Liga games this season, but he remained silent in the LDC, Wednesday night, in a victory snatch against Inter Milan (0-1) thanks to Rodrygo.

On the eve of the European meeting, the native of Lyon had rightly recalled that the Ballon d’Or was “ every player’s dream “, And that he therefore coveted it as” all players “, more than ” The most important “Was to help the Merengues” to win titles “. This is bad, in 2021, the Casa Blanca has not won any trophy and will not win any by December.
