Argentina midfielder Palacios suffers broken leg
Buenos Aires, Feb 13 : Argentina international midfielder Exequiel Palacios faces more than a month on the sidelines after suffering a broken leg while playing for River Plate, the Buenos Aires club said.
In a brief statement issued on Tuesday, River revealed that scans showed the playmaker had a fractured right fibula.
Local media said he would need at least 45 days to recover, a scenario that would rule him out of six league matches and three Copa Libertadores group fixtures.
Palacios, who made his debut for Argentina's national team last year, has been linked with a move to Real Madrid in July.
