Gareth Bale    M    Real Madrid
Bale will not play in Real Madrid's La Liga match against Barcelona on Saturday due to a glute strain, manager Carlo Ancelotti confirmed Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Bale was already ruled out of Real Madrid's Champions League match at Liverpool on Wednesday, but there was a glimmer of hope that he would play in the Clasico. Isco is expected to replace him once again.
Karim Benzema    F    Real Madrid
Benzema is expected to be fit to face Liverpool in the Champions League on Wednesday after being held out of Real Madrid's La Liga match against Levante on Saturday due to the flu, Marca reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The Liverpool defense continues to struggle at holding out opponents, including two goals to QPR this past weekend, giving Benzema a ripe opportunity for significant fantasy production.
Sergio Ramos    D    Real Madrid
Ramos has not traveled to England for Real Madrid's Champions League match against Liverpool on Wednesday due to a calf injury, but he is expected to be fit to face Barcelona on Saturday, Marca reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ramos suffered the injury back against Athletic Club before the international break, forcing him to miss out on two matches for Spain. Pepe and Raphael Varane are expected to fill the center of the Madrid defense against a Liverpool attack that has lacked bite this season.
Gareth Bale    M    Real Madrid
Bale has been ruled out for Real Madrid's Champions League match against Liverpool on Wednesday due to a gluteal muscle injury, The Independent reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Bale was held out of last weekend's La Liga match against Levante after picking up the injury while on international duty. Isco replaced Bale against Levante and figures to be the top candidate to start in his place at Anfield.
Luis Suarez    F    Barcelona
Suarez, whose four-month suspension for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup ends Friday, claims he is 100 percent fit, and he could make his Barcelona debut Saturday against Real Madrid.

Fantasy Analysis

While he claims full fitness, Suarez hasn't played in a competitive match yet this season due to the ban, though he did play two matches for Uruguay during the recent international break. He'll form a dynamic trio with Lionel Messi and Neymar, though he may not be inserted immediately into the starting XI.
Luka Modric    M    Real Madrid
Modric picked up a knock and had to be subbed off in the 79th minute in favor of Alvaro Medran.

Fantasy Analysis

Manager Carlo Ancelotti did not give any further details regarding the injury after the match, but Modric is considered an injury doubt for Wednesday's Champions League match against Liverpool at Anfield.
Gareth Bale    M    Real Madrid
Bale was held out of Saturday's La Liga match against Levante due to a pulled glute and he could miss Wednesday's Champions League match against Liverpool, the club's official website reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Isco started in place of Bale on Saturday and registered a goal and an assist, showing that he can play alongside James Rodriguez, something many felt could be a problem this season. Manager Carlo Ancelotti made a point to say that he didn't want to risk Bale, which is certainly better news than potentially missing a number of matches. If he does not play at Anfield, his next opportunity will be Saturday's Clasico.
Karim Benzema    F    Real Madrid
Benzema was held out of Saturday's 5-0 rout of Levante due to the flu, PA Sport reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Chicharito started in place of Benzema and recorded a goal and an assist in the win. The illness does not sound overly severe, and Benzema could return as early as Wednesday's Champions League match at Liverpool.
Iker Casillas    G    Real Madrid
Casillas didn't have to make a single save to post his third consecutive clean sheet during Real Madrid's 5-0 win over Levante on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Casillas has been under plenty of scrutiny this season, and recently lost his No. 1 keeper spot for the Spain national team to Manchester United's David De Gea, but he's played well enough in La Liga action to post three clean sheets in a row. With the solid-enough play of late, he'll continue to hold off Keylor Navas for the starting job.
Isco    M    Real Madrid
Isco scored his first goal of the season, while also adding an assist, in Real Madrid's 5-0 rout of Levante on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Isco got the start in place of Gareth Bale, who sat out with an illness. He is an incredible talent when he's on the field, but Isco's playing time is just too inconsistent to rely upon in most fantasy formats.
