Mario Balotelli Humiliates PSG Like It's Barcelona All Over Again

Mario Balotelli and Nice gifted Monaco the Ligue 1 title by thrashing PSG on Sunday.

Mario Balotelli hasn’t appeared as often as he would’ve liked for Nice this season due to three red cards and a smattering of various injuries, but when he has played he’s been unplayable.

Super Mario made it 14 goals in only 18 Ligue 1 starts as Nice stomped Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday, effectively handing the league title to Monaco.

 

Balotelli has now scored four goals in his last three starts for Nice, and his wonderfully unique, bordering on arrogant, style of play was on full display against PSG. 

 

In the 60th minute, with Nice leading 2-0, PSG defender Thomas Meunier was content to watch Balotelli do a bit of showboating near the sideline, but Blaise “We’re Winning By Five Goals, What Could Possibly Go Wrong” Matuidi wasn’t having it. Meunier’s reaction to Matuidi’s foul is probably my highlight of the season.

Balotelli only signed a one-year contract with Nice, so he’ll be a free agent this summer. While Galatasaray and Napoli are rumored to be interested in the Italian striker, there’s a great chance that’ll he’ll renew with Nice as they have qualified for the Champions League next season.
