Immobile Scores 1, Sets Up 1 In Lazio 3-1 Win Over Dortmund


ROME: Playing in the Champions League group phase for the first time in 13 years, Lazio looked like it couldnt wait to return.

The Roman club scored two early goals in a convincing 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

European Golden Shoe winner Ciro Immobile netted the first against his former club, and Dortmund goalkeeper Marwin Hitz scored an own-goal when a shot was deflected in off his head.

Erling Haaland pulled one back for Dortmund in the 71st but Jean-Daniel Akpa-Akpro restored Lazio's two-goal advantage five minutes later.

In the other Group F opener, Club Brugge stunned Zenit St. Petersburg with a stoppage-time winner from Charles De Ketelaere to win 2-1.

A crowd of 1,000 fans was allowed in to the Stadio Olimpico and the supporters were quickly on their feet when Immobile chipped in a delightful goal after just six minutes.
