Sports Desk – Lazio kept alive its hopes of finishing second in Serie A with a 2-0 win against already-relegated Brescia in its penultimate match of the season on Wednesday.
Striker Ciro Immobile also boosted his chances of clinching the top scorer award as he netted his 35th goal of the season, moving four clear of Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo. Immobile becomes first italian to score 35 goals!
Immobile is also just one off equaling the all-time record of 36 goals in a Serie A season, set by Gonzalo Higuain when he was at Napoli in 2015-16.
