Since joining Lazio, Ciro Immobile has established himself as one of the greatest strikers to ever play for the club. More so, he is notably surpassing several well-known players on the all-time Serie A goals leaderboard.

Former Lazio defender Massimo Oddo is lauding the Italian striker as one of the top goal-scoring talents in the continent today. Oddo spoke about Immobile, with comments being relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

His consecration took place in Lazio. He has found his ideal environment and dimension.

The mental aspect in football matters a lot and a player can do extraordinary things in an environment if the right one. Rome and Lazio are his home. He has become one of the strongest strikers in Europe

Lazio is heading towards a clash with rivals AS Roma in the Rome Derby. For Oddo, he notes that Inzaghi’s preparations for this fixture will play a key factor in how the match itself will turn out.

Simone [Inzaghi] knows his team well. Being an expert in these matches, he will not neglect the mental aspect, relying perhaps on the most experienced. There will certainly be tactical measures.

A win for Lazio can get the side closer to Roma in the league table.
