Ciro Immobile is one of the most prolific goal scorers in Serie A history but it is only in the light blue half of Rome where he is loved.

Last night, he cemented his place in Lazio history when his goal in the 1-0 win at home to Venezia making him the highest Serie A goalscorer in Lazio’s history.

The Napolitan had already become their all-time top goalscorer across all competitions and now he has that crown in Serie A as well.

It makes him Lazio royalty. The player whose records he has taken is Italian legend Silvio Piola and as Immobile has already declared that he wants to end his career in Rome, there is plenty of scope for many, many more goals.

Immobile now sits on 144 Serie A goals. He is leading the Serie A goalscoring charts, the capocannonniere, ahead of Dusan Vlahovic, so with perhaps another two seasons at the top, there is scope for another 40-odd goals for Ciro.

The win for Lazio sees them jump ahead of both Atalanta and Roma into 5th place where competition for the Europa League spot is very tight indeed.

Immobile is also strongly expected to feature in the world cup play off between Italy and North Macedonia, which is only 9 days away but Mancini has some injury concerns ahead of the crucial game.

His talismanic defensive partnership of Bonucci and Chiellini is unlikely to feature, both players are currently injured. This could mean a place for Alessandro Bastoni or Francesco Acerbi in defence.

Spinazzola is still out with the achilles injury he sustained in Euro 2020, so Emerson Palmieri is likely to start on the left.

Mancini has to solve his attacking problem. He is determined to start with Ciro, so the question is going to be who is chosen to support him.
