The most recent La Liga fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisBenzema has six goals in six La Liga games this season and bagged a brace before coming down with the injury against Armenia. His absence will put more pressure on Cristiano Ronaldo to break through and score more consistently this season, with Gareth Bale a possibility to move up in the Madrid attack after the international break.
Fantasy AnalysisBenzema scored two second half goals as France eased to victory. The striker has been in great form this season and repeated his club feats with an excellent all-round display on the international stage. However he had to be substituted with ten minutes remaining due to a thigh injury and the star Frenchman's withdrawal will be worrying for Real fans.
Fantasy AnalysisVazquez was only brought on to the field after 73 minutes but still managed to notch an assist, his cross being converted at close-range by Cristiano Ronaldo. The midfielder touched the ball 19 times in total and was an effective attacking outlet.
Fantasy AnalysisIsco's clever pass after 29 minutes sent Cristiano Ronaldo through on goal who then struck to give Real the lead. The midfielder also delivered three crosses and received a yellow card before being replaced by Russian Denis Cheryshev on 84 minutes.
Fantasy AnalysisRonaldo made it five in two Champions League games this season with two clinical strikes in Sweden. He beat Malmo goalkeeper Johan Wiland in a one-on-one situation for his first and then doubled his tally when he converted Lucas Vazquez's stoppage time cross. Ronaldo had twelve shots in total in what was a very offensive display.
Fantasy AnalysisLyon controlled the majority of the possession and have dangerous center forward Alexandre Lacazette, but Jaume and the Valencia back-four were able to keep them at bay. After sitting for the first two matches of the season, Jaume has been the team's keeper for the last six across all competitions, recording four clean sheets in that time.
Fantasy AnalysisPiatti has been shuffled in-and-out of the starting XI and hasn't scored or tallied an assist in La Liga play. However, in Europe, he has a pair of assists. Last season, he had seven goals and seven assists in 28 league matches last season.
Fantasy AnalysisFeghouli has yet to score in La Liga play, but scored a goal in Champions League qualifiers against Monaco. The 25-year-old had six goals and eight assists in 33 matches last season and the Valencia winger will look to continue his European hot streak in their next fixture against Gent.
Fantasy AnalysisKovacic replaced striker Jese on 59 minutes but didn't manage to assert himself on the game. The midfielder touched the ball just 28 times and completed only 80.8% of the 26 passes he attempted.
Fantasy AnalysisJese made a rare start in attack for Real but wasted some good opportunities despite getting in some decent positions. The striker had three shots and also produced seven crosses but couldn't make the difference as his side were held to a stalemate at home. Jese played almost an hour before being replaced by Mateo Kovacic.
