The FIFA will hand 2013's Ballon D'Or in Zurich (19:00 CET). Although it all indicates that Cristiano Ronaldo has been the winner, Franck Ribèry and Lionel Messi will wait and see if there is a big surprise.
Real Madrid are hopeful that Cristiano Ronaldo will win it. As a proof, the club's own TV channel will broadcast the ceremony live.
Spanish TV program 'Tiki Taka' questioned more than 30 voters and collected a 36.1% win for Cristiano Ronaldo and a second place for Lionel Messi. Legendary football player Pelé also stated that the 2013 Ballon D'Or "will be for Cristiano Ronaldo."
Still, we all have to wait and see what the outcome is. Cristiano Ronaldo certainly deserves the award and he would be the first Real Madrid player to win it since Alfredo di Stéfano in 1959, considering that Ronaldo, Zidane and Figo raised it because of their seasons with Inter, Juventus and Barcelona.
