We have our 30 nominees for the 2018 Ballon d'Or France Football! #ballondor pic.twitter.com/M01sH5gspj? #ballondor (@francefootball) October 8, 2018

Messi has, of course, already won the award five times, his last win coming back in 2015. The early odds suggest he will not be picking up his sixth Ballon d?Or this year. Luka Modric is the early favourite, followed by Cristiano Ronaldo and Kylian Mbappe. Rakitic is nominated after a season where he helped Barcelona win the double and made it all the way to the World Cup final with Croatia. Suarez also makes the cut after scoring 31 goals to help Barca win La Liga and the Copa del Rey.
When it comes to the winner the players are judged on three things: performances over the year, achievements, and talent and fair play.
