Olympique de Marseille swept Saint Etienne aside with a 2-0 victory in Saturday’s Ligue 1 derby as Mario Balotelli continues his goalscoring spree
The former Nice striker opened the scoring in the 12th minute with a superb overhead kick, after which Florian Thauvin converted a spot kick in the 21st minute to ensure Les Phocéens’ fourth triumph in their last five Ligue 1 meetings.
However, Balotelli’s goal celebration was an absolute highlight of the encounter, as the Italian ‘bad boy’ found a new way to amuse the audience.
After putting the ball behind Stephane Ruffier’s back, the ex-Italy international has broadcasted his celebration via his official Instagram profile by recording a Live video.
After Francesco Totti introduced the world with a ‘selfie celebration’ against Lazio in 2015, the Palermo native has innovated something that won’t be forgotten quickly.
It was Balotelli’s fourth goal in his sixth appearance for Marseille as he continues to drag his team towards the Champions League promotion zone.
