In terms of consistency through the season, number of top-level performances, standing up in the biggest moments possible and final trophy haul, Benzema ticks every box needed to win a Ballon d’Or.
There is not a player who even comes close to the Real Madrid striker in terms of impact on the 2021-22 European season, and he will rightfully lift the Golden Ball at October’s ceremony.
Karim Benzema is not just the favourite to win the converted award. There is no competition regarding to this year’s Balon d’Or. Liverpool’s Sadio Mane would have won the award had he clinched the Uefa Champions League.
