Ballon d'Or 2023 Ranking the Top Favorites

The Ballon d'Or is without a doubt football's most prestigious individual award. The 2022 Ballon d'Or will be awarded at the ceremony, which is scheduled for October 17. With Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo out, we're almost certain to see a new winner this time.

The winner of the Ballon d'Or is determined by a combination of votes cast by media representatives, national team captains, and coaches.

Robert Lewandowski

He may or may not win the coveted Ballon d'Or award during his career, but you can't blame him for not trying. Lewandowski, the European Golden Shoe winner the previous two seasons, joined Barcelona this summer.

So far, the move has worked out almost perfectly. The Pole has made an immediate impact at the Camp Nou, demonstrating to the Catalans just how good they can be with an out-and-out striker.

Lewandowski has 12 goals and three assists in nine appearances for the Blaugrana across all competitions.

Erling Haaland

In his first eight Premier League games, the international player from Norway had three hat tricks. For Manchester City, the 22-year-old has been shredding his opponents to pieces with his movement, finishing, and overall game intelligence.

This season, in just 11 appearances across all leagues, Haaland has racked up an incredible 17 goals and three assists. He will walk to the 2023 Ballon d'Or if he continues this. During the most recent international break, he also scored a goal for Norway against Slovenia on September 24 in a losing match. Lewandowski has twelve goals and three assists to his credit.
