The soccer gods say “no thanks,” but the odds are 83.3% in your favor! ‘Sorry EPL Bombers’
Will he make it eight?
The soccer content production company barlebofc, using information from betting site Sky Bet, put Lionel Messi’s odds of winning the 2023 Ballon d’Or at 83.3%.
Messi has been called a soccer god and has swept the Ballon d’Or, which is awarded to the best player in the world. He’s already won the honor seven times and is on pace for an eighth.
Messi is the number one favorite to win the 2023 Ballon d’Or because he won the World Cup.
Messi has tasted victory in every major tournament of his career, but he hasn’t had much luck on the World Cup stage. In the 2014 final, he was swept aside by Germany and hung his head in shame.
Messi has finally gotten his act together. He finally got his revenge when Argentina beat France to win the 2022 tournament in Qatar, adding a World Cup trophy to his collection.
With Messi’s coronation as World Cup champion, there’s a strong sense that the Ballon d’Or award for the world’s best player is a foregone conclusion.
However, Messi has made it clear that he no longer wants to win the Ballon d’Or.
“I lifted the most important World Cup trophy of my career. The Ballon d’Or is a great achievement. But the most important thing is to win with the team,” he said.
“If you win the Ballon d’Or, it’s great. But if I don’t win it, it’s okay. I’ve achieved my career goal,” he said.
Messi is not the only player who wants the Ballon d’Or. Manchester City goalkeeper Elling Holland.
Holland took the English Premier League (EPL) by storm last season with bomber performances in a City jersey.
Some thought it might be an adjustment for Holland, but they were wrong. 스포츠토토
Holland put on a show, scoring 36 goals and becoming the EPL’s top scorer.
The team followed suit. City won the EPL and FA Cup titles, as well as the UEFA Champions League (UCL) trophy.
Holland played a huge role in City’s treble, winning the EPL Golden Boot and becoming the number one favorite to win the Ballon d’Or, but he’s not going to be able to keep up with Messi.
