Very few have questioned Mario Balotelli‘s ability throughout his career, but more so his ability to keep his focus.

The Italian striker appears to be fitting in nicely at his club in France, though. At least on his debut.

Balotelli scored twice in Sunday’s 3-2 win against Marseille, giving Nice a positive sign moving forward if the 26-year-old can sustain the same production throughout the 2016/17 season.

The former Liverpool forward got Nice out in front after a dream start seven minutes in by converting from the penalty spot. Balotelli was at it again in the second half, pulling Nice level in the 78th minute before Wylan Cyprien scored the winner at the Allianz Riviera.
