The Lazio forward beats the Polish Bayern Munich player and makes things very difficult for the Juventus star.
Ciro Immobile left this Wednesday without the Golden Shoe to Robert Lewandowski, whom he surpassed at the top of the classification for being the best scorer in Europe. The striker of Lazio turned somewhat into his team’s victory over Brescia at Olympian of Rome and reached 35 targets in A series, one more than the ones the Pole signed with Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.
Cristiano Ronaldo is the only one who can catch up to Immobile, if he manages to convert four goals in the two remaining games for Juventus in Serie A, against Cagliari and Roma. If he succeeds, he will win the fifth Golden Shoe of his career (three with Real Madrid and one with Manchester United). To be the sole owner of the award, you will need to score five targets.
It should be remembered that the current Golden Boot will be the first one that a LaLiga player has not won in twelve years, since the Spanish competition had the best soccer players in the world during the last decade. Lionel Messi and Ronaldo himself were the banners of a Barcelona and a Real Madrid that dominated Spanish and European football for a long time.
In addition to heading to win the Golden Boot in Europe, Immobile is close to a record that Gonzalo Higuaín holds in Italian football. The Argentine is the player who scored the most goals in a Serie A season with 36, just one more than the attacker of the Roman team accumulates, who could overcome it if he manages to score a double on the last date against Napoli.
35 – Only Gonzalo Higuain (36 in 2015/16) has scored more goals than Ciro #Immobile (35 goals in the current campaign, as many goals as Nordhal in 1949/50) in a single Serie A campaign. Target. #LazioBrescia pic.twitter.com/eLnllwgTMG
