Lionel Messi may have won four Ballon d'Or Trophies. however, after single handedly guiding Portugal to victory in their crucial World Cup qualifier against Sweden, William Hill have slashed the odds of Cristiano Ronaldo winning the Ballon d'Or from 2/1 to 4/9 with Franck Ribery 15/8 and the Barcelona legend out to 8/1. Following Sweden's defeat, Ibrahimovic's odds have drifted from 20/1 to 28/1.
"When the prices first came out, Ronaldo was 9/2 to win the Ballon d'Or but he has just been absolutely phenomenal this season and it seems that for once he will not be playing second fiddle to Mr Messi," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Ronaldo is 8/1 to finish Brazil 2014 as leading scorer after his stunning hat trick in Sweden saw Portugal win 4-2 on aggregate to qualify. We also make him 7/1 to be the player of the tournament.
