The most recent La Liga fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisFollowing the departure of Toni Kroos to Real Madrid and an injury to Javi Martinez, Bayern manager Pep Guardiola has apparently been on the lookout for a replacement holding midfielder. With Real Madrid adding a number of midfield options over the summer, it looks like they won't stand in the way of a move. Either way, should the transfer go through, it would be a shocking piece of business and one that would immediately strengthen Bayern's already formidable squad.
Fantasy AnalysisAlonso, who's being heavily linked to a shock move to Bayern Munich, made 114 appearances for Spain over his international career and scored 16 times. At 33 years old, it's not too surprising to see the central midfielder call it quits, especially after Spain's woeful showing at this summer's World Cup.
Fantasy AnalysisThings weren't looking so good for Bilbao after Marek Hamsik had put Napoli up 1-0 early into the second half. However, Aduriz struck twice in a span of eight minutes, and not long after Ibai Gomez sealed the deal to help Athletic Bilbao earn a spot in the Champions League group stages. An in-form Aduriz holds a lot of fantasy appeal for this weekend's home encounter with Levante.
Fantasy AnalysisCasillas will have to continue keeping opponents out of the net if he wants to hold off Keylor Navas, who was brought in this summer to potentially take over the goalkeeping duties. Casillas will get every chance to keep the job, but with Madrid playing for multiple trophies this season, they can't afford to let him linger too long.
Fantasy AnalysisBale was fairly limited offensively in the match, but he remains an elite fantasy option with double-digit goal and assist potential, especially in a lethal Madrid attack that now features James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos, along with leftovers Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.
Fantasy AnalysisThere are tons of expectations on Rodriguez this season after Madrid paid more than £60 million for him this summer. If he continues to put up the shots he did Monday, it's only a matter of time before he puts one in the back of the net. However, don't sleep on his passing, as he led Ligue 1 in assists last season while with AS Monaco.
Fantasy AnalysisIsco didn't even enter the match until the 70th minute when he subbed on for James Rodriguez. The Madrid midfield is absolutely stacked this season, which could make it tough for Isco to see consistent appearances in the starting XI.
Fantasy AnalysisBenzema opened the scoring in a match that turned out to be much tighter than many expected. While he is often overlooked by Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema is still an excellent source of goals in fantasy leagues.
Fantasy AnalysisKroos looked very comfortable playing in his first La Liga match for Real Madrid, and with punishing goal-scorers like James Rodriguez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema around him, Kroos could rack up the assists this season.
