Lazio striker Ciro Immobile insists the 4-2 victory over Lecce was hard-earned, as the newly-promoted side "made it difficult."
Immobile was on the scoresheet for the seventh consecutive game in the league, and is leading the Capocannoniere charts with 14 goals in only 12 games.
"It was not a simple game, the Giallorossi played well. It was not easy to beat them. They put us in great difficulty at times. We were good for the victory, even though we always give our fans a little panic," he smiled on Sky Sport Italia.
"We have to continue to grow as a team, but first lets enjoy the three points."
Immobile was then asked about his relationship with Torino striker Andrea Belotti, who is fighting to be Roberto Mancini's Italy No 9 for Euro 2020.
"The national team? I have always said that the duel with Belotti is right. It is a positive battle. We are friends, and the competition is welcome."
