Immobile, who defeated Lewandowski in the Competition for the Golden Shoe last season, is also in close competition with the Polish star this season. Before this big confrontation, the Italian striker called Lewandowski the best striker in the world.
“Lewandowski is never satisfied. Every year he tries to improve and go beyond his limits, even if they are already exceptional,”
Immobile added on facing Bayern:
“It’s right to consider [this tie] a prize. Facing the best [clubs] gives you satisfaction and extra motivation."
“Obviously, it will be a very difficult game. We will try to do our best in the two legs, aware that we won't change our style of play. We will always do what we know, and we know that we will have to give something extra to achieve the perfect game.
“They're a very [attack-minded] team, who play quick, total football, so it will be difficult for us to stop their attacks; then we'll look to cause them problems in their weak spots.
“It’s clear we won’t have as many chances as in previous games, so we have to be focused on taking advantage of them.
“We’re going up against the winners of last year's Champions League. It will be essential for us to understand every aspect of this game; however it finishes, though, we have to be pleased with the work we've done in the Champions League.
“Getting here after 20 years is a big result for the club and a source of happiness.”
