Italy international Mario Balotelli received a two-match Ligue 1 ban after his red card for OGC Nice.
The striker was sent off for a late tackle during the 0-0 draw with Bordeaux on December 21.
This evening the Disciplinary Commission ruled he would sit out a two-round suspension.
It is a victory for Balotelli, who had risked as much as a four-match ban for the incident.
This season the 26-year-old has scored 10 goals in 14 competitive appearances for Nice.
However, he also received seven yellow cards and two red.
