Immobile vs. Lewandowski: duel of the super clippers

Immobile vs. Lewandowski: duel of the super clippers

 The  round of 16 between Lazio Rome and FC Bayern in the Champions League (Tuesday, from 8:50 p.m. live and exclusively on Sky Sport Austria 1 – stream the game with the SkyX Dream Pass) could be an offensive spectacle, because it is also the duel between the two top strikers Ciro Immobile and Robert Lewandowski.

Sky expert Lothar Matthäus is looking forward “not only to the duel between Lazio and Bayern, but also to Immobile against Lewandowski”, said the DFB record national player when he was introduced as the betting provider’s new brand ambassador Interwetten. Since his return home, the ex-BVB striker has been snapping “back where he is loved, where he speaks the language”.

Hansi Flick’s assistant coach and Lazio insider Miroslav Klose warns above all about the attacker’s effectiveness. “Immobile needs few chances for its goals, which speaks for its quality,” he told the kicker.

Immobile raves about Lewandowski

But the other way around, the respect is huge. Ciro Immobile enthuses in the interview on his opponent: “He is a complete striker. I think he’s the best ninth in the world right now, so we have to be extremely careful. ”

What he admires about Lewandowski is the fact “that he is never satisfied. He wants to improve every year and go beyond his limits ”.

And this season too, Immobile is doing well again. In the group stage of the premier class, the 31-year-old was more dangerous than the Pole. Immobile was able to contribute five goals for the round of 16, Lewandowski only three. ©

 The  Italian’s weak point, however, is in the air – despite being 1.85 meters tall.

Lazio dependent on Immobile


 The  offensive game of Lazio is also heavily dependent on Immobile. When the striker was out of the group stage due to a corona disease, the Italians could neither win against Bruges nor against St. Petersburg (both 1: 1). With Immobile, Lazio scored 2.3 goals per game in the CL group stage, without him only 1.0.

Klose still thinks Lewandowski is “better, he is complete and the measure of all center strikers”. ©

 The  Bayern star can confirm that this is the case on the pitch tonight.
