Borussia Dortmund must 'get a grip on' Ciro Immobile when they face Lazio in the Champions League on Tuesday, says sporting director Michael Zorc.


Zorc is wary of the threat of the former Borussia Dortmund striker, who has found the net 126 times in 181 games for Lazio.

"He can't stop scoring in Italy. Ciro is an outstanding finisher. Lazio have a very good team over all, but of course he's a key player," Zorc told Sport1 and added:

"We have to get a grip on him. You have to stop him from finishing and preferably not let the balls get to him in the first place."

Immobile spent the 2014/15 season at Dortmund, scoring 10 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions.
