Prandelli was impressed by Balotelli's derby performance in their draw with Inter Milan.
"Balotelli played a good match against Inter Milan and has made 2-3 important steps We do not need to go into what he did at the end of game and it does not seem a very serious thing," said the Azzurri coach.
"The continuity of Mario? It depends a lot from him and from Milan in the sense that he has the good fortune to have joined a big club with a great coach that will enable him to better express his qualities.
"He has important potential."
