Mario Balotelli was sent off in stoppage time as nine-man Nice saw their lead at the top of Ligue 1 trimmed to two points heading into the winter break following their goalless draw at Bordeaux.

The controversial Italian striker's record of having scored or received a yellow or red card since arriving in France had almost been broken before he kicked out at Igor Lewczuk.

Balotelli had almost snatched the winner moments before but instead league leaders Nice had to settle for a point.
