The most recent La Liga fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisVidal began to experience soreness in his right adductor this week in training and could miss out after struggling with leg problems to this point in the season. Barcelona are missing other defenders at the moment which could require Javier Mascherano to play in the center of defense, making Sergi Roberto and Lucas Digne candidates to fill in if Vidal is forced to sit.
Fantasy AnalysisThe fullback has impressively earned five cautions in his last six appearances in La Liga and will be forced to watch Saturday's match from the stands. Danilo has claimed a large share of the playing time at fullback this season and will receive another start in Carvajal's absence.
Fantasy AnalysisIniesta lasted just 14 minutes before limping off the pitch, and medical evaluation revealed damaged ligaments that will require some time to heal. Barcelona are rich in midfield talent but should struggle to replace Iniesta's guile and experience as a link between defense and attack.
Fantasy AnalysisAgirretxe is back in training but may still be just short of match-fitness. Even if he makes it back, though, he won't hold almost any immediate fantasy upside as he's been hit by a slew of injuries since last December and has only played once in the past 10 months.
Fantasy AnalysisKoke was sent off after earning his second caution of last week's match and will be forced to watch from the sidelines. He will be back in the team Nov. 5 versus Real Sociedad.
Fantasy AnalysisAduriz has been unable to train recently because of the injury and was apart from the team for most of Thursday's session. If he is forced to sit out, his next chance to return would come next weekend against Espanyol.
Fantasy AnalysisBergara will be sidelined for a few more weeks. The midfielder, though, isn't a regular starter with only four appearances (two starts) and no goals or assists he holds a little fantasy value.
Fantasy AnalysisElustondo returns from injury, however, with only two La Liga appearances (one start) since the beginning of the season he's not much of a fantasy factor.
Fantasy AnalysisGomez has been on and off the team as a starter or on the bench. The 19-year-old prospect doesn't hold much fantasy upside with limited playing time and won't be sorely missed even if he's sidelined Friday.
