Lazio, a record-breaking Ciro Immobile is one step away from the conquest of the Golden Shoe. The striker from Campania has passed Lewandowski, now he has to keep Cristiano Ronaldo at a distance to celebrate the coveted individual trophy.
Lazio, Ciro Immobile scored at Brescia and reached 35 goals. Thanks to these 35 goals, the Lazio center forward overtook Lewandowski taking the lead in the classification of the Golden Shoe.
To win it, Immobile will have to keep at a distance Cristiano Ronaldo who is currently four goals away (even if he will play against Cagliari shortly).
But Immobile is not only in the running for the Scarpa d'Oro, scoring another goal would hook Higuain at 36. At the moment the Argentine holds the record of seasonal goals in Serie A. Obviously, with two other goals, Immobile would become the only player in Serie A history to have scored 37 goals in one season.
The Golden Shoe is a trophy that has existed since 1967 but in all these years only two Italians have managed to conquer it (Luca Toni with Fiorentina in 2006 and Francesco Totti with Roma in 2007).
So the last Italian to win the trophy is a footballer, Totti, who played for a team in Rome. So if Immobile were able to win it, he would bring the trophy back to Italy and Rome, but this time on the white-blue bank of the Tiber.
The striker from Campania would be the first player in the long history of Lazio to have conquered this trophy.
