The ex-Liverpool man this time made the headlines for the right reasons with a fine hit that gave Kevin Trapp no chance in the PSG net.
Say what you will of Mario Balotelli, but the Nice striker still has the skills to put any team to the sword on his best days.
Balotelli made a big impression on Sunday as he scored the Cote d'Azur side's opening goal against Paris Saint-Germain.
Kevin Trapp had no answer for a lovely finish hit from outside the box, which left Super Mario jubilant.
Further strikes from Ricardo Pereira and Anastasios Donis sealed a fine victory for the hosts, keeping their Ligue 1 title hopes alive — at least on paper — with three games to go.
