We’re only a day away from the Ballon d’Or ceremony, with the winner due to be announced on Monday night in Switzerland.

Winner of the past four Ballon d’Or’s, Lionel Messi is a huge underdog to win his fifth.

Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo is a clear favourite for the coveted award, having not won it since 2008.

A photo has emerged of the seating plan including where the two best players in world football will be sitting.

Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will be separated by only one seat at the ceremony.

Titus Bramble is rumoured to be sitting between the pair.
