Cengiz backed to win Ballon d’Or

Cengiz Under

A major bookmaker in Italy is offering odds on Roma talent Cengiz Under to win the Ballon d’Or by 2023, reports footballitalia.

Cengiz’s run of five goals in his last four games has not gone unnoticed in the betting world, with Sisal Matchpoint launching a special of 50/1 for the Turkish attacker to end Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s grip on the award in the next five years.

Unfortunately for Roma and the 20-year-old, his most recent finish could not prevent a 2-1 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League last 16 on Wednesday.
