Immobile nets Hat-trick, 4 clear Ronaldo in Serie A and now level with Lewandowski across Europe

Hat-trick for Ciro Immobile.

Four clear of Ronaldo in Serie A and now level with Lewandowski across Europe’s top five leagues.

A hat trick moved Ciro Immobile within three goals of overtaking Gonzalo Higuain’s single-season record for Serie A with two matches remaining.

Immobile netted two penalties and also scored a magnificent strike in Lazio’s 5-1 win at Hellas Verona on Sunday. He now has 34 goals in 34 matches — four more than Cristiano Ronaldo atop the Italian league’s scoring chart..



Higuain scored 36 for Napoli in 2015-16.

Immobile’s second goal of the night was a thing of beauty: Set up by Jordan Lukaku on the left flank, he curled a shot into the far top corner.

Lazio moved level on points with third-place Atalanta, one point behind Inter Milan.

Juventus, which is five points ahead of Lazio, can clinch a record-extending ninth straight title with a win over Sampdoria later Sunday.
