Despite Lazio having to deal with a variety of injuries, last season showed why the Serie A title contenders are legitimate; Their win over Dortmund' at Matchday 1' prepared them for their first qualifying round in 21 years.
Even on the European stage, Immobile is a top forward, players like Luis Alberto and Sergej Milinković-Savić provide a midfield quality few sides have. With solid mid-half Francesco Acerbi' at the back, Lazio will be a tough opponent for everyone.
