In the last decade, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have dominated the award, but with their age now declining, Benzema believes he and others can rise up to the challenge now.
Benzema said to journalists: ”[Winning the Ballon d’Or] does not make me lose any sleep, although it is a dream for every player.
“What I want is to help the team. Every player wants to win it and so do I.”
Benzema went on to stress that Real Madrid aim to come out victorious of this Champions League campaign .
He added:”For me, the Champions League is the top competition and it is the one with the most pressure.
“For me there are no favourites. On the pitch one thinks that one team will win and then another wins. We have a great team and we are going to fight for winning it.”
