WATCH: Balotelli Scores Stunning Goal Then Gets Red Card In Six Minutes Of Madness
Mario Balotelli is on fire at Nice! The mercurial talent bagged his sixth goal in just five games for the French outfit followed by two yellow cards in six minutes of madness.
Nice beat Lorient 2-1 with the Italian sticking one in the top corner with only five minutes left to go, sending them top of the Ligue 1 overtaking Monaco.
'Balo' received the ball from a beautiful back-heel, proceeding to sell two defenders with his first two touches including a delightful dummy before curling in a stunning strike into the top corner picking up his first of two yellow cards for removing his shirt as he reeled off in celebration!

But in typical Balotelli fashion he then got himself sent off. In the dying moments of the game, he clashed with Steve Moreira with the referee harshly giving Balotelli his second yellow card.
But forget the red card. Balotelli is doing absolute bits in France!
