Can Mohamed Salah rival Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi for the 2018 Ballon d’Or?

For the past ten years, it was either Leo Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo who won the Ballon d’Or award.

Perhaps, this time it could finally change?

As you can see, Salah is better than both Cristiano and Messi in terms of shot conversion rate because he doesn’t shoot much.

Salah has also created more chances than Cristiano, but fewer than Messi. Same goes on with assists.

Overall, Salah’s figures don’t differ much from those of two geniuses of the modern football.
