AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri praised Mario Balotelli after their 1-1 draw with Lazio.

Allegri had been particularly critical of Mario Balotelli after the 3-2 defeat to Parma on Sunday, but was pleased this time.

"Balotelli had a good game, working hard and attacking the space, which wasn't easy against Lazio. I am happy with his performance this evening."
