Balotelli scores game winner for Milan

Posted: Mar. 4th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Mario Balotelli is making front covers in Milan but not for his usual mischievous ways. He seems to have turned his attitude around and is now becoming one of the stars of AC Milan. This past weekend Balotelli scored the game winner. With this strike Milan position themselves in 4th place in their league.

MILAN:  A late strike from Mario Balotelli was enough to secure a 2-1 victory for Milan over Parma and a jump up to fourth place in Italy’s Serie A on Friday.

Milan, who host Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie next week, took a 39th-minute lead when Argentine defender Gabriel Paletta put into his own net.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side virtually secured all three points when Balotelli scored from a freekick in the 78th minute.
