Let s say equal. While ronaldo is slightly older, i think they will both end their career roughly the same year. It s 100% sure ronaldo will win it this year, it s well earned. I was just looking at the ballon d or winners since the first one. Even if it s true that stats are much more important than before (I doubt we'll ever see a defense win such title ever again), what s been going on between these two for the past 10 years is just ridiculous... we will most likely never live such a rivalry between two players For the title ofthe best player in the world. They probably would never have done it one without the other.
I think it would be fair if they both ended with the same amount of ballon d or titles. Hope they stop at 5, and that madrid and barcelona stop winning all the time, this is really getting boring.
Nevertheless.. this is a team sport. This is about clubs.. teams.. not individual players. I hate how the ballon d'or has become such an important thing for the younger audience
