Marseille striker Mario Balotelli scores in fifth consecutive game

Olympique Marseille striker Mario Balotelli's goalscoring form has been maintained.

The former Inter Milan star has found the net in each of his opening five Ligue 1 fixtures played at the Stade Velodrome.

The 28-year-old bagged an early brace against Angers on Saturday.

The last player to score in his first five Ligue 1 home matches was Josip Skoblar between 1967 and 1969.

Skoblar holds the record of nine in a row.
