Ciro Immobile has opened up a four-goal lead over Cristiano Ronaldo in the race for the Serie A Golden Boot award.

Lazio thumped Hellas Verona five-one in Serie A today. The victory came by way of three goals from Ciro Immobile, one from Joaquim Correa and another from Sergej Milinkovic Savic.

Immobile’s goals were not just important in his side’s battle with Atalanta and Inter for second place in the league, but also for personal achievement too.

He has been leading the hunt for the Golden Boot for just about the entire season. However, Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has been on a mission and the Portuguese goal machine has hunted down his Italian counterpart of late.

The gap was down to just one goal before today’s games, but with Juventus playing later Immobile had the chance to take a firm grip of the accolade.

Check out the highlights, including goals 32, 33 and 34 from Ciro Imobile!
