​Pictures of Cristiano Ronaldo's new pair of Nike boots suggest that the Real Madrid hitman will win his fifth Ballon d'Or tonight.

Pictures shared on Instagram show the words 'Quinto Triumfo' which translates to 'fifth triumph' which is inscribed on the boots. 

The shoes also include the numbers 2008, 2013, 2014 and 2016 on them which signifies the years in which Ronaldo has previously claimed the award and 2017 has also been added which probably confirms he is in line for another personal accolade.

France Football will be announcing the winner of the 2017 Ballon d'Or on Thursday afternoon European time.

Here are some images:


Ronaldo became the first ever player to score in all six games in a Champions League group stage when he netted against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.
