This is the long-awaited evening for all football enthusiasts. The presentation of the Ballon d’Or can be followed live in Europe 1 Sport and on the Europe 1 website. Frenchman Karim Benzema is the big favorite of this 66th edition. He could succeed big names in football like Michel Platini or Zinédine Zidane. The Top 10 is revealed from 8:30 p.m.

Frenchman Kylian Mbappé came especially for the occasion. The Paris Saint-Germain player who has gone through the last difficult days is guaranteed to be in the Top 10 but he is not one of the three big favorites. The title should be played between the Pole Robert Lewandowski, the Senegalese Sadio Mané and the French Karim Benzema.
