As March rolls around, the fixtures keep coming thick and fast with the season approaching its business end.

February witnessed the return of Champions League football; the ideal platform for Europe's elite to step up and be counted. While a number of them did sizzle, there were just as many that failed to make their mark.

The 2018 Ballon d'Or was won by Luka Modric, who finally ended the stranglehold Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo had on the award. 2019 has not been too kind to Modric though as the Croat has suffered an almighty slump in form.

That has opened the door for a number of other contenders, including the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Mohamed Salah to stake their claim for the grand prize.

Last month's ranking had five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo closer to the bottom than the top. But will that change this time around? Let's dive in and take a look at the March 2019 edition of the Ballon d'Or Power Rankings.

#10 Bernardo Silva

A surprising entry on this list, Bernardo Silva has flown under the radar at Manchester City despite putting in solid performances week in week out.

Despite being overshadowed by the likes of Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne, Bernardo Silva has been just as important to the City setup.

The Portuguese starred in City's wins against Arsenal and Chelsea, but his most important contribution arguably came against West Ham after being brought on in the second half, winning the penalty which Aguero then went on to convert.

With crucial ties coming up in the FA Cup and Champions League in March, he has the chance to rise quite a few spots in the ranking if he can inspire City to a few wins.
