Madrid sports newspapers highlight in their front pages the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo could be awarded today his second Ballon d’Or.
“Cristiano attends Ballon d’Or ceremony with victory hopes,” As titles. “Ballon d’Or smells of Ronaldo,” Marca states.
The event will start today at 17.00 GMT. The Portuguese seeks to end Leo Messi’s four-year domination and take the trophy home.
Madrid dailies also emphasize Los Blancos’ 0-1 win over Espanyol, which shortens their deficit with Atletico Madrid and Barcelona to just three points.
“Three points and 19 games ahead,” As point out. “Modric guides Los Blancos as Madrid re-join the fight for La Liga with more effectiveness than good game,” Marca argues.
As highlights Carlo Ancelotti’s words after the game: “We’re very satisfied for having reduced the point’s deficit.”
