Mario Balotelli does not miss penalties. He stands up, looks the goalkeeper straight in the eyes and scores them.

It doesn't matter whether it's for Manchester City, Italy, or AC Milan—they always went in. In fact, according to www.hasbalotellimissedapenalty.com (yes, it's a real website) he was 26/26 in his career, an astonishing record.

Until tonight.

Balotelli's effort was comfortably saved, as Napoli looked to wrap up a victory that confirms their title credentials.
