Golden 2016 ball: When the votes do they stop?

Sport 22 November, 2016

While the identity of the future Ballon d’Or will be announced on December 13, explains why the games are (almost) already made.

To find out who will win the Ballon d’Or 2016, we must analyze the entire calendar year. Well almost. For everything that happens in December does not count really. While it will be announced December 13 by France Football in a special issue, the famous trophy will reward the player who collected the most votes at the end of November. More precisely, Sunday, Nov. 27, closing day votes journalists. So, let it be said, what happens on the pitch at Camp Nou Clasico Barca-Real Madrid on December 3 will not change the situation. Above all, it means that there are only two games the leading contenders to stand out and score points.

Come on Leo, you lend your toy?
Of course, there will be no trophy to award during this week, which means palmares remain largely in favor of Cristiano Ronaldo this 2016 after his victories in the Champions League (top scorer) and the Euro. And as it is not bad timing, CR7 has slammed a hat-trick against Atlético. Solid! Cricri should enjoy the matches against Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League (22 November) and the Sporting Gijon in La Liga (November 26th) to end the suspense. For their part, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez or Antoine Griezmann will attempt to put goals like pearls in their next two matches. But no big opponent, difficult to tip the balance.
