Liverpool players dominate Ballon d’Or market following European success

Liverpool center back Virgil van Dijk is the clear odds-on favorite to win the Ballon d’Or, following Liverpool’s Super Cup win last night. The dynamo is now 8/13 to acquire the most prestigious individual??award in world soccer, edging ahead of 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 next Liverpool at the top five championships, with yet another in the form of Mohamed Salah (33/1) who follows soon after. That usually means that outwith Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the top end of this market is practically solely made up of Jurgen Klopp’s guys.?? Van Dijk is the punters’ choice for the award attracting 53 percent of all bets in the last 24 hours.?? Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson:”It’s been several years since we’ve observed a centre-back as prominent as the colossus that’s Virgil Van Dijk. “The impact the Dutchman has had on this Liverpool side – that the primary catalyst for them winning the Champions League – should see him net this year’s Ballon d’Or.”
