Sport Ronaldo spared against Roma, Immobile European Golden Boot
Golden boot slips away from Cristiano Ronaldo as Immobile widens gap
Juventus lost 2-0 against Cagliari on Wednesday.Lazio defeated Brescia 2-0 last night, thanks to Immobile's strike and Joaquin Correa's early goal. Despite having his team lose out to Juventus on the Serie A title race, Immobile looks to be on course to capture the European golden boot. He took the outright lead after overtaking Bayern Munich player Robert Lewandowski, who already wrapped up his Bundesliga season with 34 goals.
Verdict without playing.
It was one of the challenges of this last day of Serie A: who of Cristiano Ronaldo or Ciro Immobile would finish top scorer in the championship, and therefore, European Golden Boot 2019-2020? The answer came even before the meetings. While he already had a comfortable lead of four pawns, Laziale can no longer be joined as the Portuguese will not participate in the last meeting of Juventus, already champion, against Roma.

Opta focus on Ciro Immobile's stunning Golden Boot season
Lazio's Ciro Immobile finished the 2019-20 season as the leading marksman in Italy and Europe. We take a look at his achievement.The 30-year-old's first-half strike in Saturday's 3-1 defeat was his 36th goal in 37 top-flight appearances during 2019-20.
With his 35 goals (one of more than Robert Lewandowski), Ciro Immobile no longer has any doubts: he will succeed Lionel Messi as European top scorer in a strange season. To prevent it, Romelu Lukaku would have to score twelve goals for Inter on Atalanta's lawn, for example. Unlikely. The Italian international will therefore succeed Luca Toni and Francesco Totti, among the transalpine scorers to have won this distinction. Last goal for him: to score a last goal to get the record on one season of Gonzalo Higuain.
