Fantasy Analysis

Benzema 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.

Benzema returned to training Sunday ahead of Tuesday's Champions League game with Juventus, Realmadrid.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Benzema 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.
Alvaro Arbeloa    D    Real Madrid
Arbeloa was an 88th minute substitute Saturday as Real Madrid recorded a 3-2 win against Sevilla.

Asier Illarramendi    M    Real Madrid
Illarramendi was a late 84th minute substitute as Real Madrid defeated Sevilla 3-2.

Fantasy Analysis

Illarramendi 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.
James    M    Real Madrid
James remained on the field for the full 90 minutes as Real Madrid beat Sevilla 3-2 Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

James' 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.
Toni Kroos    M    Real Madrid
Kroos played the full 90 minutes Saturday as Real Madrid recorded a narrow 3-2 win over Sevilla.

Fantasy Analysis

Kroos 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.
Pepe    D    Real Madrid
Pepe played the full 90 minutes and conceded twice as Real defeated Sevilla 3-2 Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Defense 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.
Dani Carvajal    M    Real Madrid
Carvajal failed to keep a clean sheet as Real Madrid beat Sevilla 3-2 Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Carvajal 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.
