Ciro Immobile ruled out for Derby della Capitale

Andy Mattioli

Ciro Immobile’s perseverance to make himself available to Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri for the upcoming Derby della Capitale did not pay off in the end.

The Italian striker – who suffered an injury to his calf a few weeks ago in a scoreless draw with Udinese – has been ruled out for Sunday’s derby with Roma after undergoing a medical check-up earlier on on Monday, reports Il Tempo.

The swelling in Immobile’s leg is still too significant and will, as a result, further delay the attacker’s return to the pitch.
