Serie A’s Star Strikers Go Head to Head as Inter Hosts Lazio

Lukaku is going through a bit of a dry spell ahead of the huge matchup as the big Belgian has managed to score in only one of his last six league appearances. The former Manchester United striker started the season in immense form bagging 12 goals in his first 14 Serie A outings and was also in fine form in Europe with four goals in five Champions League encounters.

Immobile has been more consistent but unlike Lukaku, he has yet to register a multi-goal game in the Serie A this season. The 2020 European Golden Boot winner has been nullified just five times in 19 appearances in the league in 2020-21, including by Inter in this season’s first meeting in which Immobile picked up a red card late on for slapping Arturo Vidal’s face.

Lautaro Martinez and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic produced the goals in a 1-1 draw. Lazio are now unbeaten in three of the last four league clashes between the two.

Immobile has been striking fear into defenders all over Italy throughout his Serie A career, but he actually doesn’t have a very good record against Inter having netting only four times in 12 games. Inter and Atalanta are the only two teams against whom the 30-year-old has played at least 10 times without scoring five-plus goals.

Lukaku has so far faced Lazio three times without scoring and has recorded only one shot on target with nine efforts against them, so neither star striker seems to be enjoying the fixture, but both teams really need them to step it up right now.

Inter have closed the gap at the top of the table with AC Milan to two points and could turn into title favorites if Lukaku finds his scoring boots again. Lazio are nine points off the top, but they are still in the race and with Immobile bagging goals regularly, the Biancocelesti have a great chance to compete for the Scudetto. Simone Inzaghi’s men will enter Sunday’s big matchup on a league-best six-game winning streak.
