Virgil van Dijk is now the bookmakers' favourite to win the 2019 Ballon d'Or

Virgil van Dijk has pulled ahead to become the bookmakers' favourite to win this season's prestigious Ballon d'Or.

The Liverpool defender helped his side become European champions for the sixth time in their history in Madrid, and now is sparring with Lionel Messi for the title of Europe's top player.

Van Dijk added to his cause this week when captaining Holland to a crunch victory over England and a place in the finals of the UEFA Nations League.

Now the Liverpool man appears set to scoop the biggest personal accolade of them all.

Following Holland's result, Van Dijk shifted up among the bookmakers to feature as the frontrunner for Ballon d'Or glory.

Lionel Messi currently occupies second place, while many place another Liverpool star in Sadio Mane at third.
