- 2020 Club Atlético River Plate 87 10

‘Pala’, who joined Bayer 04 at the start of 2020, had an outstanding first six months at Leverkusen. He missed the first three league games due to a suspension from his time at River Plate. After that he was a victim of the good Bayer 04 performances at that stage. There are no doubts about the quality of the midfielder who won the Copa Libertadores – the South American equivalent of the Champions League – with River Plate in 2018. Palacios combines aggressive play against the ball with creative ability. The shirt number 25, once worn by Bernd Schneider, is an incentive for him: "It's an honour and responsibility to wear this shirt."

Palacios sidelined, good news for Frimpong

That was the outcome of an MRI examination the day after the 3-2 away win for the Werkself and it means the 25-year-old Argentinian will have to watch from the sidelines for the time being.
