I'm not decrying either achievement mate. Both have fantastic records, even if they are topped up by penalties.
I'd still hope Ronaldo could catch him, but 3 in 2 games will probably be a bit much to overhaul.
I reckon Ciro will score a couple against Brescia also tbh, don’t see Ronaldo catching him and I hope he doesn’t :))

Lukaku getting the better of Koulibaly usually. He looks twice the player he was at Man U. He really is a big handful and very good in a better footballing team. Didn't get enough quality service at Utd for me at times.

At least give Immobile something to cheer about after that disaster of a campaign since the restart :p

Great win for Inter last night (incidentally I think the shirt isn't as radical in the flesh, I'm quite happy with it) and what about Atalanta winning again, definitely the team of the season and potentially on the edge of greatness once the Champions League resumes.

As for tonight, the relegation battle between Genoa and Lecce might be resolved, though unlikely, can't see the Grifone getting anything at Sassoulo, while a win for the Giallorossi in Udine would see it go to the last day.

Only consolation is that Sassuolo’s form is poor and we all know how eratic the defence can be. That said I expect sassuolo to win by 2 at least.

Going to have to go against Super, I think Fiorentina v Bologna could be a tasty fixture. Can see that being a score draw. That said, Milan are playing well as are samp. 3-1 Milan I will go.

Just the tip...
Just from memory, Immobile 14 from the spot, Ronaldo 12. Both have missed a couple though.
They’ve both been penalty merchants this seasons. Absurd number of spot kicks for two players to get. No wonder their tally’s are talked down when you look at the percentage made up by those.

Stat padding at its finest, FWIW that’s why I think people don’t truly appreciate Alfie’s goal tally.

It’s a valid point. Saw someone comparing him to Boyd yesterday, absurd enough on its own before you even consider that Boyd hit PK’s too.

Anyway, joining Juve in the first place was always about stat padding. A player of his quality was never going to find it tough putting up good numbers when he’s joining a team that are so much more powerful than the rest, good way to make sure you keep them numbers high in your golden years.

Aye I mentioned that in the Alfie thread.
It was a weird move in all honesty, obviously you can interpret it as a great player joining a great team. Then again you’d imagine a man of his self confidence and assurance would go to a more challenging team.

If I’m correct they both scored 15-19 league goals last season, so quite a jump. If you take away the pens from all players then they are still the top two. It’s just mental to think nearly 50% of goals they have scored are from the spot.

To be fair everything you said about padding could apply to him at Real too. They’ve also had a load of pens this season

Premier lost the feed for Milan so put on lazio, Immobile gets two I reckon he’s won the Capocanierrie. Misses a great chance and then does well to direct a header into the ground but the keeper saves.

3-0 Milan, defence nowhere to be seen. Samp then miss good chances. Need a Samp and Genoa goal for 120 from a fiver.
