Mario Balotelli Scores On Nice Debut After Just 7 Minutes

Mario Balotelli has scored on his Nice debut by converting a seventh-minute penalty against Marseille.

The Italian was trusted with the spot kick after being handed a start by boss Lucien Favre. Balotelli was goaded by ex-Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis as he stepped up, then stuttered in the run up before beating the goalkeeper low to his right before holding his arms out stretched in celebration.

The former Manchester City striker moved to Nice on a free transfer on deadline day after a dismal couple of years.
