The Golden Ball has finally arrived as Lionel Messi searches for the unprecedented seventh gong.
And speculation in Spain suggests he’s got it, ahead of the man who probably won the 2020 canceled award – Robert Lewandowski.
Meanwhile, great rival Cristiano Ronaldo will not attend the ceremony.
And France Football has announced that two side awards will be presented at tonight’s ceremony – Club of the Year and Striker of the Year.
Prize winners will be confirmed around 9pm UK time tonight.
The entire ceremony will be televised on Eurosport, while L’Equipe’s YouTube channel will offer a free live stream.
