The full statistics: Cristiano Ronaldo, Franck Ribery & Lionel Messi in 2013 [Graphic]
We all know this – it isn’t even worth putting any money on with the bookies any longer – but the decision will likely see plenty of discussion this evening.
Once Ronaldo is announced as the winner there will be plenty of debate about who should have won.
So, the graphic above is designed to give you all the information you could possibly need about the three finalists: Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Franck Ribery.
Some may say Ronaldo only wins it when Messi is injured.
Whilst others could argue the best player in world football should come from the best team, undoubtedly Bayern Munich…
The debate will run and run…
