Can Luis Suarez “snitch” the FIFA Golden Ball (FIFA Ballon d’Or) from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, this year? So far, the FC Barcelona hitman has been firing on all cylinders. This week, the man from Salto, Uruguay not only scored 2 four-goal games, but also assisted on 3 goals from his teammates. Stunning statistics from arguably the best pure striker in the world today.
As a result of this fruitful week for the Uruguayan international which saw the club win its 2 matches, he has overtaken Ronaldo as the best goalscorer of the 2015-16 season in La Liga BBVA and for this calendar year (34 to 31 with Messi trailing at 25 goals), he has a production of 28 goals and 15 assists which matches the production of Lionel Messi who also had a productive week with 2 goals and 3 assists giving him 28 goals and 13 assists in 2016 alone.
In my article upcoming regarding Week 17 and the race for the Ballon d’Or, Luis Suarez will be included along with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
