Oh no! Mario Balotelli misses another penalty as his spot-kick reputation takes a nosedive

Once known as the marksman who never missed, now audiences don’t know how much longer AC Milan should trust Mario Balotelli for penalty duties.

Until September, in 26 previous attempts Mario Balotelli had scored all the penalties he had taken as a professional.

Then Milan lost 2-1 against Napoli in a match that saw Pepe Reina deny Super Mario from the spot for the first time, and on Saturday night against Genoa, Balotelli was again thwarted from 12 yards.

With the scores level 1-1, Genoa keeper Matteo Perin picked off Balotelli’s poor penalty and, just like that, Super Mario hasn’t managed to score his two last penalties in a row.
