Immobile double lifts Lazio into fourth

Rome, Italy: Ciro Immobile scored twice in a five-minute blitz to end Lazio's three-match losing streak and lift the Roman side up to fourth in Serie A with a 2-0 victory over Verona on Monday.

Immobile grabbed his first after 55 minutes at the Stadio Olimpico and doubled his account five minutes later to bring his tally to a Serie A-leading 22 goals this season.

Lazio overtook Inter Milan who dropped out of the Champions League places into fifth after their 2-0 loss in Genoa on Saturday.

Verona remain stuck second from bottom after their seventh defeat in eight games.

Napoli matched Juventus with a 1-0 win over SPAL on Sunday to hold top spot in Italy ahead of the champions who won the Turin derby by the same score.

The two Serie A pacesetters both bounced back from European setbacks to claim their ninth consecutive league wins.
