Mario Balotelli scored twice on his debut for Nice against Marseille, netting his first league goal in 355 days.
Balotelli, 26, was making his first appearance for Nice on Sunday and got his career at the Ligue 1 club off to the perfect start, finding the back of the net from the penalty spot just seven minutes into the home game with OM.
He added a second goal in the 78th minute -- the ex-Inter Milan man heading home Ricardo's inviting cross from close range.
The goals proved to be the Italian striker's first in league play for just under a year, with his last coming during his loan spell with AC Milan last season in the 3-2 Serie A victory over Udinese on Sept. 22, 2015.
