Balotelli to miss Nice trip to Guingamp

Ligue 1 Conforama > News

Mario Balotelli will miss OGC Nice's game at En Avant Guingamp on Sunday with a thigh injury, the Côte d'Azur club's boss, Lucien Favre, has confirmed.

Balotelli's 14 league goals this season have helped his club into contention for a top-five finish and a place in next season's UEFA Europa League.

But the Italy striker, who scored in last weekend's 2-1 win over LOSC Lille, is not in the Nice squad to travel to Brittany.

"Mario Balotelli didn't train this week. He took a blow to the thigh last Friday against Lille," Favre explained. "It's nothing serious. He'll have a routine MRI to check things out on Saturday."
