Lazio had made quite a turnaround as of late.

For a side that was at one point nearing the bottom half of the Serie A table, the Biancocelesti is now right back in the mix for a top-four spot in the standings. From unsung heroes stepping up with their performances to formidable defensive showings, Lazio has quietly shutdown talk regarding a potential letdown season.

Ciro Immobile has been among the players who have chipped in for strong performances over the team’s five-match league winning streak.

For the reigning Golden Boot winner, he is starting to see somewhat of a resemblance to last season’s team, which he shared on why in speaking to Sky Sport (via La Lazio Siamo Noi).

We are in a moment of very good psychophysical form too. We lived it on our skin last year and if you lose concentration and competitive nastiness, you struggle.

We lost a lot of points; we were in a difficult situation, and we did well to get back in the standings.

While Lazio may not be serious title contenders like they were last season, the Biancocelesti sure is starting to play sound football.
