Balotelli to miss next three Nice games
He has seven goals to his name for Nice, with six coming in the league, helping the club to the top of the Ligue 1 table.But they will now have to cope without their talisman for the upcoming fixtures with Bastia, Toulouse and Guingamp after the injury forced him to miss Thursday’s 2-0 defeat to Schakle, which saw Lucien Favre’s men knocked out of the Europa League in the group stage.
“He won’t be available for the three matches to come over the next 10 days, that’s for sure,” said Favre.“For the matches that come after that, we don’t know yet.”
Nice will also be without defender Paul Baysse for the rest of the year because of a knee tendon complaint.Going into tomorrow’s meeting with Bastia, Nice hold a three-point lead over Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain at the top. They have not won Ligue 1 since 1959.
