Fantasy AnalysisThe Portuguese is almost expected to score in every game he plays at this point, be it a league game or a Champions League semifinal. His tally stands at 52 goals and 18 assists in 43 matches this season and he will look to add to that against Valencia on Saturday.
Fantasy AnalysisBenzema has been sidelined since the middle of last month due to the ailment and was unable to play in the second leg of the quarterfinal matchup with Atletico Madrid. He returned to training Sunday, so there was hope that he'd be fit for Tuesday's match, but he's short, leaving Chicharito to possibly start again.
Fantasy AnalysisBenzema took part in team training and it looks likely that he'll play some part in the crucial game midweek. The forward has been out with a knee injury sustained against Athletico Madrid in the previous round of the tournament but has now finally returned to fitness.
Fantasy AnalysisArbeola replaced Marcelo with only two minutes of normal time remaining. The fullback touched the ball just two times in his time on the field.
Fantasy AnalysisIllarramendi played bit-part role in the Sevilla win, touching the ball just four times in his short time on the field. It was the midfielder's 18th substitute showing of the season, the player only being handed nine starts this campaign.
Fantasy AnalysisJames' second half cross was flicked on by Chicharito to set-up Cristiano Ronaldo's second goal. Aside from that, James wasn't as effective as he has been in recent weeks, he had just one shot and produced two crosses.
Fantasy AnalysisKroos has made more league appearances than any Real player this season and it's clear to see why. He was the best passer on the side against Sevilla, completing more passes than any Real player and having the highest completion rate. The midfielder also took four shots, a number only bettered by striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
Fantasy AnalysisDefense wasn't Real's strongest attribute against Sevilla but Pepe and Raphael Varane's performance at the heart of the backline had litle to do with that. Pepe looked solid, he made eight clearances and several telling interceptions.
Fantasy AnalysisCarvajal sent in two crosses and was effective in going forward from his right-back position. However the Real defense looked disjointed and only succeeded in keeping a clean sheet until first half injury time. Carvajal also received his 11th yellow card of the season in the 51st minute.
