Immobile: ‘Acerbi already stopped Lewandowski’

Ciro Immobile warns Robert Lewandowski saying Francesco Acerbi ‘already stopped him.’

Lazio host Bayern Munich at the Stadio Olimpico in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday.

“I am thrilled, but sad at the same time, because fans won’t be at the game,” Immobile said at a press conference.

“I know how much they wanted to be here to watch the game against Bayern.”

Immobile won the Golden Boot for the 2019-20 campaign, but when will he receive the award?

"I don’t know, I’m waiting, it was difficult to achieve it.

“I’ll never finish thanking the coach, the staff and my teammates. It was an incredible journey, it will remain in history, even for the many difficulties we faced.”

Will he advice Francesco Acerbi on how to stop Lewandowski?

"No advice, Francesco is one of the strongest defenders right now. He already stopped him with Italy against Poland in the Nations League.

“I have great respect for big champions such Lewandowski and Ronaldo. Having my name close to their makes me proud. I feel rewarded for the many sacrifices I have made in my career".
