Lazio: the stratospheric season of Ciro Immobile, crowned Golden Shoe

Author of a magnificent season with Lazio, Ciro Immobile disgusted the defenders and goalkeepers of Serie A. With already 35 goals before the last day of the Italian championship, the Italian striker is sure to win the Golden Shoe, since Cristiano Ronaldo, the only one who can still hope to catch him, was left to rest this weekend.

Landed at Lazio in 2016, Ciro Immobile has often been decisive with the Roman club, with many goals scored in the league in particular (23 in 2016/17, 29 in 2017/18, 15 in 2018/19). But in 2019-2020, the transalpine striker did much better. For his fourth season with the Biancocelesti, the 30-year-old player has multiplied XXL performances. And with currently 35 goals in 37 days, the main concerned will no longer be able to be caught by his pursuers for the Golden Boot title, won by the player who has scored the most goals in the league.

Behind the native of Torre Annunziata, who will play the last game of the season for Lazio this Saturday night against Napoli (8:45 p.m., 38th day of Serie A), we find Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich, 34 goals in the Bundesliga) and a certain Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus, 31 goals in Serie A). With the German championship already over, the Polish striker couldn’t do better. And concerning CR7, it was spared by Maurizio Sarri for the meeting against AS Roma and will not be able to shake the nets either.

Ciro Immobile, an eagle in flight

Ciro Immobile therefore finds himself alone at the top of the ranking of the best scorers in Europe in the league, and will therefore try this Saturday to do even better. With a goal against Napoli, he will equal the Serie A goal record held by Gonzalo Higuain (36 goals in the 2015/2016 season) and will double it in the event of a double. But even if he does not find the net tonight, his season is already exceptional. Very strong at the start of the season, the Italian started with a double against Sampdoria on the first day. And at the beginning of December, after 14 days, he was already at 17 goals! Behind, the former Sevilla FC player continued, with in particular a hat-trick against … Sampdoria (January 18) and another last Sunday against Hellas Verona (July 26).

Obviously, the player trained at Juve has amply participated in the good season of Lazio, currently fourth (3rd best attack in the Italian league) and guaranteed to play in the 2020-2021 Champions League. But above all, Ciro Immobile brings change in the world of football since Lionel Messi used to win the Golden Boot since 2017. In addition, the Italian puts Serie A back on the front of the stage since it is necessary go back to 2007 to see a Serie A player glean this trophy. It was Francesco Totti, the legend of AS Roma. And at the time, Immobile had just arrived at Juve, just 17 years old.

The last ten winners of the Golden Shoe:

  • Lionel Messi at FC Barcelona (2019, 26 goals)

  • Lionel Messi at FC Barcelona (2018, 24 goals)

  • Lionel Messi at FC Barcelona (2017, 37 goals)
