Balotelli scores again as Marseille rises to 4th in Ligue 1

PARIS (AP) Mario Balotelli scored a fine goal in Marseille's 2-0 home win against Amiens on Saturday, taking his tally to three in four games since joining from Nice.

The Italian striker failed to score in 10 games for Nice this season, and questions were raised about whether he was match fit when Marseille signed him last month. But he's turned the talk into whether his goals can help Marseille push for third place in the French league, and a spot in the Champions League qualifying rounds.

Marseille moved to fourth place and six points behind third-placed Lyon.
