Ciro Immobile has fired blanks in his last nine Italy games, but statistically his negative influence seems to spread across to the team.
The Euro 2020 qualifying campaign kicks off this evening at 19.45 GMT against Finland.
Lazio striker Immobile is expected to lead the line with support from Moise Kean and Federico Bernardeschi.
If he were to find the net, it’d be Immobile’s first goal for Italy since a header to beat Israel 1-0 on September 5, 2017.
The Neapolitan has failed to score in his last nine Azzurri appearances.
