Cristiano Ronaldo is the man to beat in the race to win the Golden Boot Award in the Italian Serie A this season. The Juventus attacker has a reputation for finding the back of the net on a regular basis. Surprisingly, he has not won the Golden Boot Award since he became a part of the Italian football community in the summer of 2018. Cristiano Ronaldo signed for Juventus from Spanish La Liga outfitReal Madrid. Since he became a Juventus player, Cristiano Ronaldo has not won the Italian Serie A Golden Boot Award but this could change this season.
The Juventus talisman is leading the race to finish as the highest goalscorer at the end of the season. The Portuguese player scored twice last weekend during the home game with AS Roma to take his league tally to 16 goals this term. Cristiano Ronaldo hit a brace as Juventus beat AS Roma 2-0 at home to stay in touch with the top two teams.
Juventus are third on the league standings behind the Milan duo of AC Milan and Inter Milan. The win over AS Roma ensured that Juventus remain seven points behind league leaders AC Milan having played a game less. The Old Lady will play Napoli at home in their rescheduled game in the coming weeks to have a chance of closing the gap on the Milan teams. A win over Napoli will take Juventus to within four points of AC Milan and two points off Inter Milan.
Cristiano Ronaldo will have to fend off the quartet of RomeluLukaku, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ciro Immobile and Luis Muriel if he wants to win the Golden Boot. Inter Milan striker Lukaku, AC Milan talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Lazio star Ciro Immobile are all on 14 goals, while Atalanta forward Luis Muriel is on 12 goals.
