The ‘leaked’ Ballon d’Or classification shows Robert Lewandowski claiming the prize ahead of Lionel Messi
Viral ‘leaked’ image of this year’s Ballon d’Or qualification shows Robert Lewandowski as the winner ahead of Lionel Messi, Karim Benzema and Mohamed Salah … but fans are divided on whether the documentary is fake
- An image of a document supposedly from France Football was leaked
- Some claim it is proof that Robert Lewandowski will win the Ballon d’Or
- It is seen that Lewandowski won with 627 points to finish ahead of Lionel Messi
An image of what is said to be the final qualification for this year’s Ballon d’Or has leaked online, with Robert Lewandowski in first place.
The image is from a document supposedly from France Football, which is dated October 25 and shows the ranking of those competing for this year’s award.
It has sparked a major online debate, focused on the veracity of the document.
This is an image of the document that some claim shows the classification of the Ballon d’Or
Robert Lewandowski will win his first Ballon d’Or at 33 if the list is authentic
If the image is genuine, then the Bayern Munich striker will win football’s biggest individual accolade for the first time on 29 November.
Some fans offered tweets of support for Lewandowski and were glad that the veteran forward finally ‘won’, while others were skeptical about him.
He is seen to have accumulated 627 points out of 176 voting nations, ahead of Lionel Messi in second place, who would miss a seventh crown.
Karim Benzema is in third place with 526 points and has always been present for Real Madrid and France over the last year.
Lewandowski would be a worthy winner, whether the leaked image is real or not, and the 33-year-old was the favorite to win last season, had the award not been canceled due to Covid.
Lionel Messi is second on the list so he would not win a seventh Ballon d’Or

The Polish forward has scored 17 goals in 13 games so far this season with staggering averages of one goal every 52 minutes in the Champions League and 72 minutes in the Bundesliga.
Messi has yet to turn the world on at PSG, but he still has a lot of credit from his last season in Barcelona, in which he scored 38 goals with 14 assists in all competitions.
Half of the so-called best players in the world ply their craft in the Premier League with Mo Salah in fourth place, Jorginho in fifth, N’Golo Kante in seventh, Cristiano Ronaldo in ninth and Kevin De Bruyne in last place of the top 10. .
