Both Barcelona and Liverpool won convincingly this evening, the former in La Liga and the latter in the Premier League.
Barcelona hammered Real Madrid 4-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu in El Clasico, thanks to goals from Luis Suarez (two), Neymar and Andres Iniesta.
Meanwhile, Liverpool registered a stunning 4-1 victory over City away from home at the Etihad Stadium.
Italy international striker Balotelli, who joined Serie A outfit AC Milan on a season-long loan deal from Liverpool in the summer transfer window, was seemingly pleased with the two results.
Liverpool are ninth in the Premier League table at the moment with 20 points from 13 matches, six points behind fourth-place Arsenal.
Barcelona are currently at the top of La Liga with 30 points from 12 games, six points clear of second-place Real Madrid.
