Ballon d'Or 2024 Odds: Spain's Rodri 6/4 following Euros win

Manchester City midfielder Rodri is second in the betting to win the 2024 Ballon d'Or after playing a crucial role in Spain's Euro 2024 success.

28-year-old Rodri was awarded UEFA's Player of the Tournament award for his performances at the Euros for Spain, with further individual accolades possibly on the way for the ex-Atletico Madrid player.

Real Madrid's Vinicius Jr remains favourite for the Ballon d'Or after a sensational campaign saw him pick up both the La Liga and Champions League titles, with Los Blancos teammate Jude Bellingham third in the reckoning.

2024 Ballon d'Or Odds

Vinicius Jr

As big as 25/1 before the Champions League semi-finals, Vinicius Jr remains favourite in the Ballon d'Or odds after his performances for Real Madrid in the last four and his goal in the final.

While the 23-year-old has been operating at an elite level for a few years now, he's matured superbly following the departure of Karim Benzema, and now spearheads the attack for both Real Madrid and Brazil.

Vinicius' Ballon d'Or credentials may have taken somewhat of a hit following Brazil's poor performance at the Copa America, however, with the Selecao crashing out in the quarter-finals against Uruguay.

Rodri

Manchester City and Spain midfielder Rodri has moved up the reckoning to win the Ballon d'Or in 2024 following Spain's Euro 2024 triumph.

28-year-old Rodri was an indispensable player for Man City as they secured their fourth Premier League title in a row and has proven equally influential for a Spain team who collected a record fourth Euros crown in Germany.

Jude Bellingham

Jude Bellingham has been a revelation since arriving at Real Madrid from Borussia Dortmund for an initial fee of £88.5m last summer.

He has already proven capable of turning it on in the big occasions, too, firing a blistering brace on his El Clasico debut in a 2-1 win for Real Madrid away at rivals Barcelona.
 
Bellingham is also fast developing into a key player for Gareth Southgate’s England, and with the Three Lions having reached the final of Euro 2024, it’s unsurprising to see the midfielder tipped to become the first Englishman to win the Ballon d’Or since Michael Owen in 2001.

Dani Carvajal

Dani Carvajal has emerged as a shock candidate to win the Ballon d'Or as a result of his outstanding campaign for both club and country.

The right-back played a pivotal role in Real Madrid's 15th Champions League win - scoring in the final against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley - with the 32-year-old also a key player for a Spain side vying to win Euro 2024 in Germany.

Lamine Yamal

Spain sensation Lamine Yamal has become an outside contender to win the 2024 Ballon d'Or after enjoying an outstanding tournament at Euro 2024 in Germany.

Barcelona winger Yamal was one La Roja's standout performers in the Euros, earning UEFA's Young Player of the Tournament award.

Destined to become one of the best players in the world, Yamal could end up winning the Ballon d'Or much earlier in his career than he could have anticipated.

Lionel Messi

The latest recipient of the Ballon d’Or, Lionel Messi would love nothing more than to retain his crown and extend his record number of wins of the prize to nine.

This prospect appears somewhat unlikely given now plays his club football in the MLS with Inter Miami, but Messi's case has now been strengthened by his latest success on the international stage - winning the 2024 Copa America with Argentina.

La Albiceleste have now won two successive Copa America titles with Messi as captain.

Kylian Mbappe

Despite having developed into undoubtedly one of the best players on the planet since firing France to World Cup glory as a 19-year-old in 2018, Kylian Mbappe is yet to get his hands on the coveted Ballon d’Or.

Placing third in the 2023 edition of the award after scoring an incredible hat-trick in the 2022 World Cup final as France agonisingly lost out to Argentina in the final, Mbappe was desperate to go one better next year, but his country were knocked out in the last four of Euro 2024.

Toni Kroos

Real Madrid legend Toni Kroos has emerged as a candidate to win the 2024 Ballon d'Or after winning his fifth Champions League title with Los Blancos.

A pivotal player for club and country, 34-year-old Kroos has now called time on his illustrious career following Germany's elimination from the Euros at the hands of Spain in the quarter-finals.

Kroos' hopes of landing the Ballon d'Or may have taken a hit with Germany failing to win the Euros, but the playmaker's outstanding performances at club level for Real Madrid should ensure he remains in contention.

Harry Kane

Making a shock move to end his 19-year association with Tottenham in the summer to join German giants Bayern Munich, Harry Kane hit the ground running in Bavaria with 27 goals in his first 23 games.

But owing to Bayern's struggles that have left them trophyless in 2023/24, Kane may be pipped by his compatriot Bellingham.

Erling Haaland

After a record-breaking first campaign in English football with Manchester City – winning the Treble and scoring the most goals in a single Premier League season in history with 36 – Erling Haaland could not have done any more to come away with the Ballon d’Or in 2023.

It was not to be, however, with Messi’s own history-making with his country Argentina enough to see him get the nod on this occasion.

The Norwegian sensation is unlikely to have to wait too long to claim the prize, with City displaying no signs of letting up under Pep Guardiola and Haaland showing no indication of slowing down in front of goal.
