Peak PB Scores
Exequiel Palacios is a central midfielder for Bayer Leverkusen. Palacios signed for Leverkusen in January 2020 for 17 Million Euros. Palacios has only started one Bundesliga game since and has only played 177 PB-eligible minutes this season. Although, there is a very small sample size to consider, Palacios has shown a lot of PB potential this season (And he had also done so whilst at River Plate). In Palacios' only full game he hit a PB score of 195 with 95 passes. Palacios could suit the PB matrix very well due to his general involvement in games. Palacios is a box-to-box midfielder who covers a lot of space each game by quickly pressing opponents, finding space to receive passes and using his strong dribbling ability to drive forward with the ball. Palacios is strong in both attack and in defense and in his 177 minutes played this season, he averaged 2.5 shots and 4 tackles per 90. Overall, Palacios appears to have the player characteristics to suit the PB matrix well, especially if he can contribute towards more goals/assists in the future. However, in the short term his chances of earning dividends appears very low due to a lack of game time.
1 Year Price Graph
Exequiel Palacios' price started the season at £1.03. Palacios' price rose to £1.40 after he signed for Bayer Leverkusen and following his strong performances, when he has played, he has hit a peak price of £1.75 since. Palacios' price has dropping since due to a lack of game time combined with the lack of demand for Bundesliga players with the season drawing to a close. This lack of demand has led to Palacios having a wide spread of 23.3% with a market price of £1.63 and an instant sell price of £1.25. It is therefore likely that Palacios could be purchased at a considerably lower rice than his current market price. Although Palacios has struggled for game time this season, he could be a strong longer term hold as his style of play could suit the PB matrix very well. Palacios may gain more game time next season if Kai Havertz leaves Leverkusen. Overall, in the short term Palacios may remain relatively stagant but due to his wide spread, he could be a very valuable hold if bought via a matched bid.
