The 30-year-old converted two penalties and scored with a majestic curling shot to leave him two goals

short of Gonzalo Higuain's record of 36 goals in a Serie A season with two matches to play. Fourth-

placed Lazio gifted the hosts a penalty in the 38th minute when Luiz Felipe allowed Valentin Eysseric to

steal the ball off him and then tripped the Verona player. Morocco midfielder Sofyan Amrabat converted

to claim his first goal for Verona. The visitors levelled with another penalty in the fifth minute of first-half

stoppage time after Darko Lazovic clattered into Immobile and handled in the process. After consulting

the pitchside monitor, the referee pointed to the spot and Immobile placed his penalty beyond the reach

of Verona's debutant goalkeeper Boris Radunovic. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic put Lazio ahead in the 56th

minute from a free kick which took a deflection that wrong-footed Radunovic and Joaquin Correa added

another seven minutes later with another deflected shot. Immobile then produced the simplest goal of

the evening, side-footing a curling shot into internet from Jordan Lukaku's pass before winning and

converting another penalty in stoppage time.
