Who will be the next Ballon d’Or 2023? England’s bookmakers have their favourites…

If the 2022-2023 season is still far from over, it is generally at this time of the year that the contenders for the Ballon d’Or France Football take shape. Football’s most prestigious individual honor is coveted by all footballers. Nowadays, a favorite emerges, according to the bookmakers, to win the Ballon d’Or 2023, it is Lionel Messi.

Bookmakers favorite Messi for Ballon d’Or 2023

Absent from the France Football list during the Ballon d’Or 2022, which saw the crowning of Karim Benzema, Lionel Messi, after a season of adaptation to PSG, is indeed back on the front of the stage. Currently, he is in the best position, according to the bookmakers, to clinch an eighth Ballon d’Or. The Argentinian striker is obviously ahead thanks to the World Cup he won against France last December. He is the big favorite, with odds at 1.16.

Kylian Mbappé, outsider at the Ballon d’Or 2023

Unhappy finalist with the France team, he was the one who kept the Blues in this final. With a hat-trick against Argentina, Kylian Mbappé made an impression on observers around the world. The French striker, 2018 world champion, achieved an extraordinary World Cup. Author of eight goals during the competition, making him the top scorer of this World Cup, he was the number one asset of the Blues. The odds offered by the bookmakers for the number 7 of PSG to raise his first Ballon d’Or is 5.5. He is Lionel Messi’s main competitor.

Karim Benzema is currently left behind in the race for the 2023 Ballon d’Or

Karim Benzema’s after Ballon d’Or 2022 was more complicated. Victim of repeated physical glitches, he missed the World Cup with the France team, due to a left thigh injury. The native of Bron is not on the same standards as last season. In addition to the missed 2022 World Cup, Real Madrid is not leader of La Liga and is far enough from FC Barcelona. Achieving the double will therefore be difficult for Benzema. Moreover, the bookmakers are not mistaken, since the odds for the 35-year-old striker to lift the most prestigious individual trophy in football at the end of the year is 29.
