Fiji Sun - - Sport -

Paris: Mario Balotelli con­tin­ued his ca­reer revival in France with another goal as Nice beat Nantes to move six points clear at the top of Ligue 1. The Ital­ian, who has scored seven goals in his first seven Nice games, latched on to Jean Michael Seri’s pass over the top to slot home their sec­ond goal. The ex-Liver­pool striker had a hand in the opener, Wy­lan Cy­prien scor­ing af­ter Balotelli was tack­led. Emil­iano Sala pulled one back but Alas­sane Plea and Cy­prien sealed it. Balotelli has scored six goals in his first five games in the French league, hav­ing man­aged only two league goals in the pre­vi­ous two sea­sons for Liver­pool, who let the 26-year-old leave for free on trans­fer dead­line day, and AC Mi­lan.
