The Ballon d'Or, football's most prestigious individual award, will be given to one of Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta or Cristiano Ronaldo at a gala ceremony tonight.
Messi, who is the bookies favourite, could become the most decorated player in history if he wins an unprecedented fourth Ballon d'Or.
Although Messi's Barcelona only won the Copa del Rey in 2012, it was an impressive year for the Argentinian, who broke Gerd Muller's long-held record of the most goals in a calendar year.
Iniesta helped Spain win the European Championships, while Ronaldo was pivotal in Real Madrid's La Liga win.
