Ciro Immobile (born 20th February 1990 | 185cm) has had a knack for scoring goals at all clubs he has played for in his career. The striker from Torre Annunziata enjoyed his best season in 2019-20 in the  Italy Serie A when he scored an extraordinary 36 goals in 37 appearances. That is 0.97 goals per league game. Looking deeper into the numbers, Immobile was on the pitch 3176 minutes out of a possible 3420, which means he scored a goal every 82nd minute.

The Lazio man attempted a total of 142 shots at goal, with 71 hitting the target – meaning 50% of his attempts were on target. 36 of those 71 attempts lead to a goal. In simple terms, every second attempt that hit the target ended up in the back of the net. Immobile was also one of the trigger happier strikers in the Serie A this season, he attempted 3.8 shots at goal per game, only beaten by Cristiano Ronaldo who had 199 attempts over 33 games, which is an average of 6.0 attempts per game.

The Italy international is technically gifted as well, winning 23 of 55 attempted dribbles, a success rate of 41%. The caveat to his enormous goal tally this season is the number of penalties he converted. Immobile stepped up 15 times from the spot during the season and scored 14.
