We could all say Ronaldo is on great form, but by now I think most football fans could agree its simply consistency, Cristiano Ronaldo has shined with 5 hat-tricks and 32 goals in 20 games so far this season.
Ronaldo stunned the world by knocking out a strong Swedish side, with the likes of Sebastian Larsson and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the game changed dramatically with Ibrahimovic scoring two in a matter of minutes, putting Portugal on their tip toes until Ronaldo grabbed 2 clinical and vital goals for the country.
And following his display in the play-off second leg, punters and crictics rapidly reacted with thousands of bets pouring through for Ronaldo to win the award, with SkyBet changing their odds from 6/4 to 4/9, replacing Frank Ribery at the head of the market.
Its been heavily argued that over recent weeks Ronaldo deserves nothing less than the Ballon d’Or and now it seems people are really anticipating what could be the tightest decision for an individual award ever.
Will Ronaldo win the Ballon d’Or this year or will Messi retain the award?
