    My comments

    Very talented an gifted player we got here, I watched his match for River Plate v Flamengo in the Copa Libertadores 2019 Final. He played really well considering the hot conditions that day, he has a quality first touch an a good engine. Leverkusen have paid a lot to get this boy over but his destined for big things an if the Internet is right Real Madrid were really close on getting palacios but that could be Internet rumours but all in all his a quality player that can handle first team action on the Big stage an is even an international now.

  • @Dav he sounds like one of Harry Potter's spells! seriously though good work.



  • What's your take on his PB performance this season and how do you see his PB performances in the future? Is he going to be a good PB hold?

    Think his average score is around 100 which is not bad considering his only just joined in January, I think he’ll hit some decent scores next season or when football returns, his young so he will get up an down on that pitch an get some goals too. I’m excited by Palacios



  • @Dav bit higher than that- but such a small sample size. Pretty sure he scored 195 on his debut but then didn't play too much after that, so was concerned about playing time. However looking into next season, don't know if I want to miss out on such pb and age potential

    How do you check what scores he got?



  • @Dav as in individual scores rather than the averages the FI site gives you? Not sure just remember.
