Reports: Lionel Messi Angry That Cristiano Ronaldo Is Favourite For Ballon D'Or

By Kurt Buckerfield - May 11, 2017 09:00 PM @KurtLaduma

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is reportedly upset that Cristiano Ronaldo has been tipped to win the next Ballon d'Or.

Neymar: Barca Must Sort Out Messi's Contract

France Football, who are in charge of giving out the Ballon d'Or prize, recently claimed that Los Blancos attacker Ronaldo is the favourite for the 2017 trophy.

According to Don Balon, Messi has been rattled by the French publication's claim as it could see Ronaldo draw level with the Argentine on five Ballons d'Or.

Real are currently the leaders in La Liga, and will also play against Juventus in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League final next month.

Messi has scored more goals than Ronaldo this season, but the Portuguese's chances of winning two major trophies within the space of a couple of weeks reportedly makes him the favourite for the prestigious award.

Ronaldo won his fourth Ballon d'Or last year, while Messi picked up his fifth two years ago.

Stats Show Mbappe Better Than Messi At His Age

The Portugal captain has scored 35 goals in 42 games this season, while Messi has found the back of the net 51 times in 49 matches.

Judging by their performances this season so far, who do you think is ahead in the race for the next Ballon d'Or? Let us know in the comments section below.

Funny this is that Messi will outscore CR7 for the first time since 2013 but Messi has received this award between now and 2013. This then means that number of goals scored don't count that much but what you win with those goals

It's strange how some people still think this old madala is hot at a time when he needs a lot of rest and a walking stick in the form of offside goals to keep up with the young and fresh Messi.

People are forgetting that Ronaldo has been misfiring all this time while Sergio Ramos was literaly carrying the team on his shoulders with his important goals and defensive abilities. Ronaldo was there and couldn't do anything to rescue Madrid. Now suddenly, two games Ronaldo scores and he must win Ballon dor? If anyone deserves Ballon dor in that Madrid team it is Sergio Ramos.

Ballon D'or is not won by the number of useless goals one has scored but by the goals that made the difference.To add to that , personal records and trophies as a proof. That's why CR7 is a heavy favorite . Lol even messi knows that too. In the past, CR7 scored many useless goals too but the award was given to messi. Time change papa lol

It's a valid concern though, I mean no title has been won yet and CR7 could still miss out on both of them. So naming the favorite seven months in advance sounds biased

If Ronaldo has a friend in France he will be given the trophy. But if it is the truth Messi gonna take it again
