Ciro Immobile won the golden shoe of the 2019/20 season.
Since the only realistic chaser Cristiano Ronaldo is not in the squad of his club Juventus Turin on the last matchday, the striker from Lazio cannot be taken from the lead.
With 35 goals of the season, Immobile is one goal ahead of Robert Lewandowski, the Bayern star cannot logically pass due to the end of the season in the Bundesliga. Ronaldo was four goals behind the ex-Dortmund.
In theory, the Italian could still be overtaken by Romelu Lukaku, but the Inter striker scored twelve fewer goals.
Immobile inherits from Lionel Messi
For Immobile it is the first win of the golden shoe for the best league hunter in Europe, in Italy the 30-year-old is the top scorer for the third time. FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has won the golden shoe in the past three years, but this time the Argentine “only” scored 25 league goals.
