Ballon D'or: Reasons Why Benzema Should Be Considered Favorites Alongside Messi And Jorginho

The race for the Ballon D'or is ongoing and we have roughly 30 footballers who are battling for the prestigious award.

However, among the 30 players that were nominated, we should be able to guess the top 5 that will battle it out, players like Robert Lewandowski, Jorginho, and Lionel Messi have been tagged as the top three.

Imagine, most football pundits and soccer pages always make the above-mentioned players their top three while analyzing the best player for the award.

However, Karim Benzema has been an impressive player this year. The French man has been instrumental for both club and country in the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 seasons. He single-handedly carried a Real Madrid team that was hit with injury crises last season and he brought a positive impact on the team, making them available for the title race before losing it to Atletico Madrid.

Benzema is currently on top of the golden boot race, as a result of his better goal contribution in the 2021/2022 season and his team is currently at the top of the table.

Benzema's return to the French national team, has been helpful in attacks and this was made visible last night when France face off against Spain for the UEFA Nation League final. He scored an amazing goal that gave the team an equalizer and he can arguably be described as the most in-form player in the world this season. His goals and assist contribution rate always keep increasing.

All the best Karim Benzema.

Kindly drop a word for Benzema.
