ROME – Ciro Immobile is playing an extraordinary season as he scored 26 in 25 games for Lazio but yesterday he was bitterly criticized for failing the penalty kick that effectively eliminated his team from the Italian Cup.
Napoli won 1 to 0 with a goal from Lorenzo Insigne, Ciro Immobile could have drawn the score from the spot but slipped shooting the ball to the stars. So Immobile decided to let off steam on Instagram writing: “On the corpses of the lions they celebrate the cans, believing they have won. But lions remain lions and dogs remain dogs. Forza Lazio ".
Immobile may have decided to write this sentence also to load his team in view of the delicate championship derby, the only goal left for Lazio, which will be held in four days. Lazio have already been eliminated from the Europa League and the Italian Cup, so now they only have the Scudetto as their seasonal goal.
Lazio are third in the standings, less than two points from Inter, second, and less than six from Juventus, leaders of Serie A. But Lazio have one game less than their rivals for the title, the internal challenge against Verona that will recover on February 5.
