Cristiano Ronaldo beats Lionel Messi for the most Ballon d’Or points ever

    A shocking new video has revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo has accumulated more Ballon d’Or points than Lionel Messi and anyone else in history.

    In between Luka Modric’s triumph in 2018, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have ruled the Ballon d’Or since 2008.

    Messi broke the deadlock between them last year by winning a record sixth Ballon d’Or, leaving Ronaldo behind on five. For many fans, this proves the Barcelona star’s superiority in terms of their levels of greatness.

    But that might not be the case after all…

    According to YouTube channel StatsTube, however, Ronaldo has accumulated a far greater number of points (3,601) compared to Messi (2,961) for nominations in the award’s history from 1956 to 2019.

    Modric is a surprise, albeit very distant, third on 837 points ahead of his Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane (715).

    While Virgil van Dijk, who is the only non-winner of the Ballon d’Or in this top 10 list, came home a surprise fifth 679 points after finishing runner-up to Messi in 2019.
