Ciro Immobile has surpassed Silvio Piola as Lazio’s top scorer of all time in Serie A after scoring a 144th league goal for the club.
Piola set the record in a nine-year stretch between 1934-1943 and scored 143 goals in 227 appearances.
After spending time with Juventus, Genoa, Turin, Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla, Immobile found a long-term home in Lazio in 2016.
Immobile scored its record-breaking 144th goal in its 201st appearance and converted a match-winning penalty kick in Lazio’s 1-0 win over Venice to move up to fifth place in the Serie A table.
The team he has scored the most Serie A goals against for Lazio is Sampdoria, who have beaten 12 times in just 10 league meetings with I Blucerchiati.
77 of his goals have come at the Stadio Olimpico, while he has scored eight times in both the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi and the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
Immobile has scored 21 goals in his first 24 matches this season in Serie A and has already surpassed his league numbers for the 2020-21 campaign (20).
However, he still has a good way to go to improve on his personal best seasonal traits. He scored 36 in 37 games in 2019-20.
