The Patrice Evra punishment for kicking a fan has been handed down and it’s not good for the former French international defender, but it could have been much worse. Evra was banned from UEFA club competitions through June 30, 2018. Soon after, Marseille announced Evra’s contract had been terminated by mutual consent.
Mario Balotelli was not called up for Italy's World Cup qualifiers this international break, so the Nice forward had some time on his hands. He used that time to race motorcycles.
We think this is a very good use of his time. Motorcycles are fun! Mario Balotelli is also fun, so this is a perfect combination. We would like to see this sort of thing more often, honestly.
We are also very proud of Balotelli for evidently winning the race.
After four goals in the first 35 minutes, Lyon and Monaco slowed down in the second half, and looked to be coasting toward a 2-2 draw.
Lyon's Nabil Fekir, who already had a goal in the game, decided the 2-2 scoreline wasn't to his liking and ripped a free kick past Monaco's wall and goalkeeper in the fifth minute of stoppage time.
