Over the last couple of seasons, Ciro Immobile has established himself as not only one of the better goal scorers in Serie A but Europe entirely. 2020 was no different for the 30-year-old striker, as he scored 28 goals for the Biancocelesti, placing him in the top three goal scorers in all of Europe.
Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) issued a press release revealing that Immobile finished third behind only FC Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski (32) and Juventus FC’s Cristiano Ronaldo (31) for goals scored in 2020. Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland and Liverpool FC’s Mohamed Salah followed the Italian striker.
During the 2020-21 season, Immobile has scored 14 goals, nine in Serie A and five in the UEFA Champions League. The Lazio striker is averaging 0.8 goals per game, which means he’s scoring close to a goal on average every game. Furthermore, Immobile’s scoring frequency of 103 minutes in Serie A reflects a striker that can find the back of the net for every fixture he plays in. Meanwhile, in the UEFA Champions League group stage, the 30-year-old scored five goals in four fixtures, averaging 1.3 goals per game and a scoring frequency of 82 mins.
Barring injury, expect Immobile’s figures in 2021 to be much of the same.
