Immobile on brink of Serie A scoring record


ROME • Lazio forward Ciro Immobile moved closer to the Serie A scoring record for a single season when he was on target in the 2-0 win over relegated Brescia on Wednesday.

He has 35 goals, one short of Gonzalo Higuain's record of 36 for Napoli in the 2015-16 campaign. Lazio's final match is at Napoli on Saturday. Cristiano Ronaldo's Golden Boot hopes faded as champions Juventus slumped to a shock 2-0 defeat at Cagliari. He remains on 31 goals.
