For the first time Lazio Rome will face FC Bayern Munich in a competitive match. The main focus will be on goalkeeper Ciro Immobile, who tried in vain in 2014 to gain a foothold in the Bundesliga.
At that time he was to follow in the footsteps of Borussia Dortmund by Robert Lewandowski, who had left BVB towards Bavaria Munich. However, Immobile never made it home in the district, after only twelve months and only three Bundesliga goals he had already retired. Despite his unsatisfactory time, Immobile does not feel a grudge: “I have nothing against the Germans,” he emphasized.
Immobile about Lewandowski: “Think he’s the best striker in the world right now”
The match against the Bavarians on Tuesday evening at the Olimpico Stadium (9 pm, LIVE! at kicker) has a special appeal, but then, after all, Lewandowski is on the other side. What distinguishes him? “Every year he tries to improve himself, to explore his limits, even if he is already an extraordinary player,” said Immobile of UEFA. “I think he’s the best striker in the world right now,” Immobile says. “That’s why we have to be very careful.”
