Champions League: Balotelli scores, Nice draws 1-1 with Ajax

NICE, France (AP) Mario Balotelli's first-half goal was only enough for Nice to draw 1-1 against Ajax in a Champions League third qualifying round, first-leg game on Wednesday.

Balotelli, the former Manchester City, AC Milan and Liverpool forward, was well placed to score into an empty net in the 32nd minute from Jean Seri's pass across goal after a surging run.

Four-time European champion Ajax leveled with Donny van de Beek's goal in the 49th, and will be favored to advance into the playoffs from the return game at home next Wednesday.
