Mesut Ozil Believes Karim Benzema should win the Ballon d'Or 2022

Sports Al Dente

After Benzema’s recent treble in the Champions League, Mesut Ozil was full of praise for his former team-mate.

Mesut Ozil has deemed for Real Madrid soccer star Karim Benzema to take the Ballon d'Or away in 2022, as Benzema persists to have his leading conquest.

Madrid were defeated 4-3 by Manchester City in first leg of their Champions League semi-final at Etihad Stadium on Tuesday...

...with Benzema scoring his 40th and 41st goals of the season.

Benzema has already scored 41 goals for as many appearances for Real Madrid this season, and is the odds-on favourite to earn the Ballon d'Or.

Veteran Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil reckons Benzema is deserving of the title of finest male player in the world.

Benzema now leads the GOAL Ballon d'Or power rankings, but he'll be up against strong competitors from a lot of leading names for the trophy.

What a fantastic game. Give my boy Benzi the Ballon D'Or.
