Serie A Golden Boot race: Cristiano Ronaldo closes in on Ciro Immobile at the top

Cristiano Ronaldo scored two penalties as Juventus twice came from behind to force a 2-2 draw against a disciplined Atalanta side on Saturday night. 

The two goals were the Portuguese ace's 27th and 28th strikes of the season, taking him one behind Lazio's Ciro Immobile with only six matches to play. 

The 34-year-old has been prolific in front of goal, even though 11 of his 28 strikes have all come from the spot. 

It's now clear the battle for the Golden Boot will be a two-horse race between Ronaldo and Immobile, as Romelu Lukaku is a distant third with 20 for the season.
