Gonzalo Higuain
Gonzalo Higuain finished 17 goals clear of second-placed Paulo Dybala in the Serie A golden boot standings

Gonzalo Higuain broke the record for goals in a Serie A season, scoring a hat-trick to take his total to 36 as Napoli thrashed Frosinone.

The 28-year-old Argentine surpassed Gunnar Nordahl's record of 35, which had stood since 1949-50.

Higuain struck twice in 17 minutes after the break before netting with a bicycle kick from the edge of the area.

Victory secured second place - and a spot in next season's Champions League group stage - for Napoli.

They finished two points above Roma, who beat AC Milan 3-1 and will go into the Champions League play-offs.

Juventus, who sealed a fifth successive title in April, finished ninth points clear of Napoli.
