Milan is Balotelli dependent, and there's nothing wrong with that.
When you have one of the premier young talents in world football who can shift the tide of a match with one moment of pure genius, it's fine to lean on his shoulders when you need help.
Balotelli picked up a thigh knock and was unavailable against Udinese. Now that those three points have been picked up, all eyes will turn toward the Barcelona match, where he is still listed as questionable.
Needless to say, Milan will go as far as Balotelli will take them in Europe.
