Fourth in the 2021 edition of the Ballon d’Or, will Karim Benzema win the next trophy? Karim Benzema would be the 5th Frenchman in history to achieve this goal in the Clasico on Sunday 16 October against FC Barcelona. Statistically speaking, the victory of the Real captain seems inevitable. During the 2021-2022 season, Karim Benzema has participated in 59 goals with 44 goals and 15 assists in all competitions, which is his best record since the beginning of his career. In LaLiga, the Frenchman was proclaimed the best player in the championship, but also the top scorer with 27 goals, thus achieving his first Pichichi trophy. In the Champions League, in addition to having once again won the most prestigious competition, Karim Benzema was crowned best player and top scorer with 15 goals, a figure only reached by Robert Lewandowski or a certain Cristiano Ronaldo in the past.

If the Ballon d’Or 2022 will be announced around 10:30 p.m. / 11:00 p.m. at the Théâtre du Chatelet in Paris, the classification began to be revealed from 4:30 p.m., here is the classification:

  • 21: Harry Kane (ENG, Tottenham)
  • Group 22: Trent Alexander-Arnold (ENG, Liverpool)
  • Set 22: Phil Foden (ENG, Manchester City)
  • Set 22: Bernardo Silva (POR, Manchester City)
  • 25 ex-aequo: Antonio Rüdiger (ALL, Chelsea then Real Madrid)
  • Set 25: Christopher Nkunku (FRA, RB Leipzig)

  • 25 ex-aequo: Mike Maignan (FRA, AC Milan)
  • Set 25: Joshua Kimmich (GER, Bayern Munich)
  • Set 25: Joao Cancelo (POR, Manchester City)

Who will be chosen as the best player on the planet in 2022. After Ada Hegerberg (2018), Megan Rapinoe (2019) and Alexia Putellas (2021), the English Beth Mead, winner of Euro 2022 with her national team and best player in the competition is the great favourite. Reigning champion Alexia Putellas, once again winner of the Spanish championship, could also retain her title while Wendie Renard, Champions League winner and Euro semi-finalist could have the best ranking of hers.

The Ballon d’Or does not only reward outfield players, although it is often aimed at neglecting defenders and favoring scorers. After the Italian national team goalkeeper Gigi Donnarumma in 2021, who will be chosen as the best goalkeeper on the planet? Looking back at last season, Real Madrid and Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is set to win the prestigious trophy after his wins in La Liga and the Champions League.

The Ballon d’Or also rewards the hopes of world football, who will become the Zidane, Messi or Ronaldo of tomorrow. The nominees for the best young player of the season trophy are Karim Adeyemi, Jude Bellingham, Gavi, Ryan Gravenberch, Josko Gvardiol, Jamal Musiala, Bukayo Saka, Florian Wirtz, Nuno Mendes (PSG) and French and former Rennais Eduardo Camavinga (Real ) . The Spanish Gavi is the great favorite.

The rules of the Ballon d’Or change for the 2022 edition. Only the representatives of the first hundred countries in the FIFA ranking (and the fifty for women) are “enabled” to vote. A hardening that increases the level of expertise and limits the (rare) fantasy votes. What will be lost in quaintness will be gained in legitimacy and trustworthiness, FF explained.
