Robert Lewandowski    F    Bayern Munich
Lewandowski took eight shots, putting three on target, and scored a goal in Tuesday’s 2-1 win (2-2 aggregate loss) against Atletico Madrid.

Fantasy Analysis

The Polish striker did everything he could to help Bayern Munich advance to the Champions League Final, but his one goal effort fell a bit short. Nevertheless, Lewandowski has still turned in an incredible season with 41 goals across all competitions. He will look to help his side secure the Bundesliga title next Saturday in Ingolstadt.
Arturo Vidal    M    Bayern Munich
Vidal played four key passes and provided an assist in Tuesday’s 2-1 win (2-2 aggregate loss) against Atletico Madrid.

Fantasy Analysis

Vidal continued his hot streak by setting up Robert Lewandowski’s second half goal in Tuesday’s second leg Champions League semifinal match but the Reds were unable to find the all-important third goal to secure a place in the finals. Vidal and team will now shift their focus to winning at Ingolstadt this Saturday in order to claim the Bundesliga title for a record fourth season in a row.
Pablo Zabaleta    D    Manchester City
Zabaleta announced Tuesday that his calf injury is likely to keep him out for three weeks.

Fantasy Analysis

Zabaleta's absence will keep him from playing in the final matches of the Premier League season, with a small possibility that he could make the Champions League final, if Man City advance past Real Madrid on Wednesday.
Octavio Rivero    F    Vancouver Whitecaps FC
Rivero was unable to train Tuesday because of the ankle injury he suffered Saturday against NYC FC, according to Farhan Devji of the team's official website.

Fantasy Analysis

Rivero's inability to train certainly clouds his chances for Saturday's match against Portland. If he's unable to play, Blas Perez could start in his place.
Xabi Alonso    M    Bayern Munich
Alonso put all three of his shots on target in Tuesday’s 2-1 win (2-2 aggregate loss) against Atletico Madrid.

Fantasy Analysis

Bayern Munich won the match 2-1 but lost the tie 2-2 on aggregate due to the away goal rule. Alonso was one of the best performing Bayern Munich players Tuesday and was all over the pitch. He put all three of his shots on target, scoring one goal, and provided seven crosses as well. With Bayern Munich now out of the Champions League, he will turn his focus to locking up the Bundesliga title Saturday when the Bavarians travel to face Ingolstadt.
Leonardo Bonucci    D    Juventus
Bonucci had two tackles and two interceptions, earning a clean sheet in the process as Juventus swept past Carpi 2-0.

Fantasy Analysis

In the absence of Giorgio Chiellini for much of the season, the 29-year-old has emerged as the leader of Serie A's dominant back-line.
Simone Zaza    F    Juventus
Zaza had one goal on three shots, one tackle and one interception in 45 minutes of play as Juventus defeated Carpi by a score of 2-0.

Fantasy Analysis

This was only the 24-year-old's fifth goal of the season in 17 matches, though 13 of these matches came in a substitute's role. The Italy international may opt for a change of scenery this summer in order to attain more playing time during his formative years as a player.
Paul Pogba    M    Juventus
Pogba had one assist, five shots, five crosses, two tackles and two interceptions in Juventus' 2-0 victory over Carpi.

Hernanes    M    Juventus
Hernanes had one goal on three shots, adding three tackles and three interceptions as Juventus defeated Carpi 2-0.

Fantasy Analysis

Hernanes has struggled to endear himself to the Bianconeri faithful this season, scoring just his first goal of the campaign and still without an assist in 13 Serie A matches.
Davide Astori    D    Fiorentina
Astori had seven interceptions and earned a clean sheet in Fiorentina's 0-0 draw against Chievo.

Fantasy Analysis

Astori is averaging more interceptions than any other Fiorentina player at just under three per match.
