Messi won the “Best” award for the first time since its inception four years ago, while the awards in recent years have gone to The Croatian Luka Modric (once) and Ronaldo (twice).

In comparison with the individual awards won by the two stars, it is clear to us that if Messi wins the Ballon d’Or, he will break the partnership with Ronaldo:

– Golden Ball:  Messi 5:5 Ronaldo

– “The Best”:  Messi 1:2 Ronaldo

– Golden Shoe Award: Messi 6:4 Ronaldo

– Best player in Europe: Messi 4:5 Ronaldo

– Best player in La Liga: Messi 6:2 Ronaldo

– Champions League scorer: Messi 4:7 Ronaldo

– La Liga goalscorer: Messi 4:3 Ronaldo

– Best Player in the World Cup: Messi 2:0 Ronaldo

This brings the total individual prizes 32 for the Argentinian magician and 28 for the Madeira Rocket.
