PSG vs OGC Nice : I’m Disappointed ! Balotelli Rues Neymar Absence

Published

on

Neymar’s suspension from Paris Saint-Germain‘s Ligue 1 crucial tie with OGC Nice comes as a huge disappointment to Mario Balotelli, as the Italian forward won’t have the opportunity to go head-head with the world-expensive player when the two side meets on Friday.

Nice have persevered through a poor run of form since the start of the season and are intending to break that poor form at Parc des Princes.

Unai Emery’s league leaders will be without Neymar after the former FC Barcelona forward was sent off amid “Le Classique” draw with Marseille.

Balotelli has been in an awesome goalscoring form, scoring eight goals in 11 games in all competition, and the enigmatic Italian striker is hopeful his side can shock the star-studded Le Parisiens.

“Of course it’s possible [to win at PSG],” he told Nice Martin. “It’s difficult but feasible.

“I wanted to play against Neymar, personally. I wish he were in the game.”

Balotelli’s form has led to calls in some quarters for him to earn an international recall for Italy’s World Cup play-off against Sweden next month.

A report by Gazzetta dello Sport suggested Italy boss Gian Piero Ventura is not ready to take the plunge and hand the 27-year-old his first action for the Azzurri since the 2014 World Cup and Balotelli is relaxed about the situation.

“If the national coach wants to call me up, I’m ready,” he added. “If he doesn’t want to call me up, I’ll always support the national team.”
