Nice struggles without Balotelli
The stomach upset took Mario Balotelli from Nice to visit Angie at the last minute, and in his absence the “eagles” reached only 1: 1 and lost valuable points in the league battle for the Europa League. Alasan Plea opened for Nice in the 67th minute, but in 84th Angelo Fulzini brought the home team’s draw, which in the third consecutive game did not lose and were well away from the relegation zone.
Angeli’s players started harder, but until the break the cleanest positions were ahead of their door. Pierre Lees-Mello and Jean Michel Seri, however, missed them. Seri recounts a pass to Alasan Plea for Nice in the 67th minute. The hit was number 14 for Play during the season and he equaled Balotelli. The best for Angelo – Carl-Tocco Ekambi has created many problems for the visitors’ defense, but he did not score the equalizing goal. Angelo Fulzini scored 84 minutes with the help of the beam.
It is a curious fact that Nice has won only 10% of its matches without Balotelli and is aiming at 52% of the matches played by Super Mario.
