Lazio Great Immobile Registers Unique Serie A Record

Despite going a man down after Luis Maxmiano’s blunder and a goal behind following Marko Arnautovic’s penalty, Lazio managed to etch a 2-1 comeback victory on the opening day against Bologna. The winner for the Biancocelesti was scored by none other than club legend Ciro Immobile. A 79th-minute left-footed strike by the Italian proved to be the game-changer, securing all three points for the capital side in the end.

With the winner, Immobile has registered himself among fellow Serie A greats for a unique record. The Euro 2020 champion has become only the fourth player in Serie A history (since the start of the three-point-era in 1994/95) to score for five matches in a row on his season debuts.

He joins three players in the exclusive club – Roberto Muzzi, Andriy Shevchenko and Luis Muriel. Immobile scored Lazio’s only goal in a 2-1 loss against Napoli in 2018/19, before netting two exquisite finishes against Sampdoria the following campaign. He bagged his side’s second in a 2-0 win at Cagliari’s Sardegna Arena in 2020/21, after which he bagged a first-half penalty against Empoli in the most recent season.
