- Balogun misses two penalties
- Monaco settle for 0-0 draw
- Was striker's first start for new club
Monaco were stunned in a 1-0 loss against rivals Nice despite having two chances to take the lead from the penalty spot. Balogun, however, missed both of those chances in what was a disastrous full debut for his new club.
Balogun had scored in Monaco's last match, a 2-2 draw away to Lorient, having made a cameo at home in a 3-0 win against Lens earlier this month. However, in his first real chance to make a first impression at his new club, Balogun struggled mightily in what will certainly go down as the worst day of his professional career so far.
It was made much worse in stoppage time when, as the two teams marched towards a draw, Nice stole all three points thanks to a 91st minute goal from Jeremie Boga.
