Immobile takes more shots on target per 90 than Abraham (1.65 to 1.03) and completes more passes per 90 (23.1 to 15.4), suggesting that he’s a more dangerous attacking threat usually.

One aspect where the English striker has the edge is defensively, however. The former Chelsea man wins 0.80 tackles per 90 compared to Immobile’s 0.26 and he also makes 1.11 blocks per 90, far more than the 32-year-old Italian striker’s 0.48.
