New Leader In European Golden Shoe Race

Ciro Immobile has overtaken Robert Lewandowski in the European Golden Shoe race, while Cristiano Ronaldo's chase to claim the award for a fifth time has seemingly ended.

Click through the gallery above to see who the top goalscorers in the European Golden Shoe race so far this season are.

The Juventus superstar scored once in his side's 2-0 win over Sampdoria on Sunday, which saw the Bianconeri secure a ninth straight Serie A title.

However, Ronaldo drew a blank in Juve's 2-0 defeat to Cagliari on Wednesday night and remained on 31 strikes for the campaign.

Ciro Immobile, meanwhile, took a massive step towards lifting his first Golden Shoe after scoring a hat-trick in Lazio's 5-1 victory over Hellas Verona on Sunday. On Wednesday, he scored another goal against Brescia to go one strike clear of Robert Lewandowski.

The Bayern Munich striker had ended the Bundesliga campaign with 34 goals, but now dropped into second place.

Meanwhile, only one player in Serie A's history has scored more goals than Immobile in a single campaign, namely Gonzalo Higuain with 36 in 2015/16.

Ronaldo would need to score at least four goals plus the amount that Immobile himself scores in his final Serie A game of 2019/20, to still level or overtake the Lazio forward.

Further down the ranking, Romelu Lukaku netted a brace to climb to seventh position. The Inter Milan striker has now scored 23 goals in his debut season in Serie A so far – you can see the current top 10 in the European Golden shoe race in the gallery above!
