Before the game Ronaldo had scored 28 Seria A goals while Immobile who plays for Lazio was on 29 for the season so far.
The third player on the top scorers standing is Inter Milan's Romelu Lukaku who is a bit behind with 21 goals. So the race for the Seria A golden boot award is firmly between Ronaldo and Immobile.
The first half of the match ended in a goalless draw but the second half saw Ronaldo open the scoring from the penalty spot. Three minutes later Ronaldo made it two for Juventus as he tapped the ball in to an empty net after Dybala who was one-on-one with the Lazio keeper chose to play Ronaldo in.
Towards the end of the game Immobile got a consolation goal for Lazio also from the penalty spot after he was brought down by Bonucci in the penalty box.
The brace from Ronaldo and the one goal scored by Immobile in this game now leaves both players level on the top scorers standing with 30 goals each.
