Benevento Goalkeeper Lauds Immobile for Thunderous Goal During Fixture

Lazio did not have many positive sequences from its Serie A fixture against Benevento.

But Lazio forward Ciro Immobile provided for a key highlight with a stout goal during the first half.

The goal was Immobile’s seventh league goal of the season.

Benevento goalkeeper Lorenzo Montipo could not do much to stop the shot attempt from finding the back of the net.

The Italian goalkeeper simply watched in awe as Immobile notched one of the top goals of the season.

Montipo spoke briefly post-game about Immobile’s goal, with his comments relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

I congratulate Ciro because it was such a fast cross into the box that his shot was basically a tip. It was such an immediate thing that I couldn’t do anything about…

Immobile has now scored 26 goals in league play in the calendar year.

But still, the results are what matter for Lazio in Serie A and the club has work to do following back-to-back winless results in league play.

Immobile and his side hope to pick up a key win in its upcoming game against Napoli.
