Liverpool middle back Virgil van Dijk is the clear odds-on favourite to win the Ballon d’Or, following Liverpool’s Super Cup win last night.
The dynamo will be 8/13 to acquire the most prestigious individual??award in world football, edging before five-time winner Lionel Messi in the bookmakers.
The Barcelona forward is 3/1 to win his sixth this year, ahead of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker (16/1) and Cristiano Ronaldo (20/1).
Sadio Mane (33/1) is the third Liverpool at the top five favourites, with another in the form of Mohamed Salah (33/1) who follows shortly after.
That means that outwith Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the best end of the??marketplace is virtually solely composed of Jurgen Klopp’s men.??
Van Dijk is the punters’ pick for the award too, bringing 53 percent of all bets in the previous 24 hours.??
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson:”It has been several years since we’ve observed a centre-back as dominant as the colossus that’s Virgil Van Dijk.
“The transformative impact that the Dutchman has had with this Liverpool side – that the key catalyst for these winning the Champions League – should see him web this year’s Ballon d’Or.”
