Mario Balotelli to have second yellow card rescinded

OGC Nice striker Mario Balotelli is due to have the second yellow card that he received yesterday afternoon against Lorient, for a non-existent head-butt, rescinded after the referee in question, Olivier Thual, admitted that he had made a mistake, according to L’Équipe.

A final decision will be made on Thursday at the LFP’s weekly disciplinary hearing, but all the signs are pointing to Mario Balotelli being cleared to play for OGC Nice in their next Ligue 1 encounter against Lyon in two weeks.
