Ciro Immobile has scored 140 league goals for Lazio since his arrival in 2016, an amount only bettered by the top players in Europe.
As highlighted by stats provider OptaPaolo on Twitter last night, the 31-year-old Italian striker’s brace against Salernitana yesterday saw him hit 140 league goals for the Biancocelesti since 2016, an incredible figure that shows the player’s importance to the Roman club.
The only players who have scored more league goals since that summer are Robert Lewandowski with 179 and Lionel Messi with 163. Immobile’s 140 league goals are tied by Cristiano Ronaldo’s 140, which shows just how clinical the Italian striker has been for the Biancocelesti.
Immobile has continued his incredible form with Lazio this season. He has made 23 appearances across all competitions under coach Maurizio Sarri, for a total of 1889 minutes. In that time, he has scored 18 goals and provided two assists. He has only failed to score in five league games this campaign.
