Exequiel Palacios scored for Bayer Leverkusen in their 3-0 win vs. Mainz.
Palacios scored his first goal of the season for Bayer Leverkusen. With Leverkusen crosses off a corner kick, the ball fell to Palacios on the edge of the penalty area as his strike would deflect off a player and give Leverkusen the 1-0 lead.
The goal would count for Palacios as he got his first of the new season. The 23 year old continues to be called up to the Argentina national team as he looks to cement his spot for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

Apart from scoring a goal, these Palacios stats show that he really has become a modern box-to-box midfielder. Therefore, as long as his form continues, he is probably Scaloni’s first back-up option to De Paul and can even sub Lo Celso in some situations, although Lo Celso’s first sub seems to be Papu. I still remember how Palacios bossed the midfield in La Paz of all places. If he stays fit, gets enough minutes and continues in the same fashion, then we have a great asset off the bench.
Lisandro Martinez and Julian had a good game, hopefully Garnacho got a chance although at Carabo Cup or FA Cup. Unlucky Marco Senesi at his new club
enzo has another good game. now a lot of people praises enzo but few month ago when i said he is impactful talent in his position few people had different opinion than me such as he is not experienced with european football etc etc, some times there is need to think differently to realize talent who will be immediate good or impactful, sometimes it needs time consuming experiences to build player. enzo, garnacho are real talent they needs to integrate in team as soon as possible, some extend julian too but julian gain some experiences from national team, and he now in city so julian inclusion also have no doubt
