How Immobile equaled scoring record as Roma win at Juventus

 

 

Lazio forward Ciro Immobile equaled the Serie A scoring record for a single season when he was on target in his side’s 3-1 loss at Napoli in their final game of the season.

The 30-year-old took his tally to 36 goals, equalling the record set by Gonzalo Higuaín for Napoli in the 2015-16 season. He also finished the season five goals clear of the next leading scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus.

Fabian Ruiz gave Napoli a ninth-minute lead with a shot from outside the penalty area which took a deflection. Lorenzo Insigne struck the post for Napoli before Immobile equalized in the 22nd minute, sweeping the ball between goalkeeper David Ospina and his near post from Adam Marusic’s pass.

Napoli regained the lead from a penalty in the 54th minute, Insigne sending Thomas Strakosha the wrong way after Dries Mertens was caught by Marco Parolo when he was about to shoot. Matteo Politano added a third in stoppage time.
