Lazio came into its UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg clash against FC Bayern Munich with the odds stacked against the side. Lazio was going up against the reigning Bundesliga and Champions League winners. In the end, Bayern showed why the side is the best club in the world as it defeated Lazio by a 4-1 score.

Ciro Immobile made the start in this highly-anticipated fixture and did not score a goal in the match. The Italian forward did log a shot on target and created a goal-scoring chance in the match.

Immobile looked back on the result via his official Instagram account. The Lazio star issued an apology to the fans for the defeat.

We are aware of the fact that we could do more but at the same time, we are confident because the path of growth also passes through these bad falls. Sorry for the result but this group doesn’t give up.

Lazio will now need to put together a performance of the season in the second leg if it aspires to pull off the comeback tie win.
