Ciro Immobile breaks assist record for a single campaign: the details
Ciro Immobile has managed to find the back of the net just four times in the Serie A TIM since the start of the second half of the season; one goal each against Napoli, Roma, Fiorentina, and Sassuolo respectively. A span of 14 matches – of which he has made 12 appearances – these numbers are not good enough for a starting striker, especially one of Ciro’s quality. Unlike his usual self in front of goal, Laziali have been unable to cheer his name as a collective as a result of the player’s current form (lack of productivity). However, his strong work ethic for the Biancocelesti is undeniable and invaluable; despite lacking in one department, he is making up for it in another. This year, Immobile has turned into the provider, setting up 11 goals – with his latest pass to Joaquin Correa in the Coppa Italia match against Milan – in all competitions. Five assists have come from the Serie A TIM, four in the UEFA Europa League, and two in the Coppa Italia. Last season, his record was 10 assists.
