The most recent La Liga fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisBarcelona have been dominant even without Messi, and they took a 3-0 lead Saturday before he even entered the match. Luis Suarez (two goals) and Neymar (one goal and one assist) led the dominant performance Saturday, and all three are likely to start together for Tuesday's Champions League match against Roma.
Fantasy AnalysisSuarez and Neymar, who had a goal and an assist Saturday, were simply unable to be contained Saturday, as they put on a brilliant performance with Lionel Messi watching from the bench. The two scored all but one of Barcelona's goals during Messi's injury absence, and the trio head Wednesday's Champions League match against Roma in dominant form.
Fantasy AnalysisKoke has netted one goal and assisted on another in his eight matches, with his goal coming in the third match this season back in September. He started in the last match against Sporting Gijon on Nov. 8, receiving a yellow card and taking one shot in the match. In the future he'll continue to regularly see the pitch and attempt to create goal-scoring opportunities.
Fantasy AnalysisBale aggravated an old calf injury against Levante on Oct. 17 and has not played since. It is unclear when the lively forward will return to action for Real but it certainly now won't be until the tail end of November.
Fantasy AnalysisIn four UCL matches, Navas has yet to concede, while keeping an equally impressive run of form in La Liga play, conceding just three times in nine matches while keeping six clean sheets. All the more impressively, Navas' last two UCL clean sheets have come in the two fixtures against European powerhouse PSG. With fixtures home against Malmo and in Donetsk, it's possible he could make it through the group stage without conceding.
Fantasy AnalysisNacho scored just his second goal ever in a Real shirt, having netted his first in last season's league campaign. The Spaniard had only replaced the injured Marcelo two minutes before scoring, his accidental goal coming from a misplaced cross on 35 minutes.
Fantasy AnalysisKroos assisted Jese just before half- time for what would be the last goal of the game. The German was dynamic throughout, taking a game-high number of 101 touches, producing five crosses and hitting one shot. He was eventually substituted for Borja Mayoral with three minutes of regular time to play.
Fantasy AnalysisMarcelo had an excellent game against Las Palmas, helping his side in all areas of the field. It took him just 14 minutes to make his mark, assisting Cristiano Ronaldo with an accurate cross. The Brazilian produced a game-high number of six crosses in total and also registered a shot.
Fantasy AnalysisCasemiro assisted Isco with just four minutes on the clock to get Real off to the perfect start. It was the Brazilian's second assist of the league campaign since transferring back from Porto in the summer.
