A bad injury to Ezequiel Palacios from Leverkusen overshadowed Argentina 1: 1 (1: 1) in the World Cup qualifier against Paraguay. The Bundesliga professional had to be hospitalized after a brutal foul by Paraguay’s Angel Romero (28).
According to Bayer, the 22-year-old suffered fractures of three transverse processes in the lumbar spine and is expected to be out for three months.
“A hard blow”
Palacios will remain in Buenos Aires for further treatment, said the Bundesliga club. “Exequiel is in good hands and our doctors are in close contact. But we will bring him to Leverkusen as soon as possible so that he can do his rehab in our ‘workshop’, where we have the best opportunities for his speedy recovery,” said sports director Simon Rolfes: “For us, but of course especially for Exequiel itself, it’s a hard blow.”
The Werkself received bad news from South America during their last international break. Right-back Santiago Arias was seriously injured in October. The Colombian was diagnosed with a broken fibula. Arias will be out for several months. Bayer is therefore considering making another transfer in winter.
