#UCLFinal2020 - 3 reasons why you should not miss historic UCL final 2022
Karim Benzema is the favourite to win the Ballon d'Or


Karim Benzema is the favourite to win the Ballon d'Or after scoring 44 goals in all competitions to help Real Madrid clinch the Spanish crown.


When questioned about Benzema, UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin explained to the AFP news agency on Friday, "He is one of the top players in the world, possibly the finest striker in the world, and I'm sure the most underappreciated player in history."


"On and off the arena, he has more personality and leadership now, but his quality has not changed, and he remains as modest as ever," added Ancelotti, who won the Champions League with Real in his first tenure as coach in 2014.

Ancelotti can also become the first coach to win the Champions League four times, having won it twice with AC Milan in 2003 and 2007 - he is presently tied with Zinedine Zidane and Bob Paisley on three victories.


This will be the team's third final meeting; the first was in Paris in 1981 when the English team won due to a goal by Alan Kennedy at the Parc des Princes.


This final, which will be officiated by Frenchman Clement Turpin, will be held in Paris solely because Saint-Petersburg was deprived of the event after Russia attacked Ukraine.
