The most recent fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
By National Team:
Fantasy AnalysisHaving been at Dortmund since 2002, it appears that no deal is yet in place to extend Dortmund number one's contract past 2016. However he is unlikely to go elsewhere and says he would relish the chance to see out his career for a club that he has made over 300 appearances. He said "I am surely not going to retire in 2016, that’s a fact. I am planning to go on playing for many years. I have been with Borussia Dortmund for more than 12 years now. This club is in my heart. I am unable to imagine playing for another club in my career."
Fantasy AnalysisPodolski said he has a contract with the club until 2016, but added that he wants to play and isn't content to sit on the bench until that contract expires.
Fantasy AnalysisMuller has been contributing in all competitions for Bayern, as he now has two goals and an assist in three Champions League matches, while also providing three goals and three assists in seven Bundesliga games. He is working on a solid point-streak as well, scoring a goal or assisting on one in five straight appearances.
Fantasy AnalysisGotze has been excellent this season and has now scored three times in his last two matches after bagging a brace against Werder Bremen on Saturday in Bundesliga play. Despite playing on a stacked Bayern squad, Gotze continues to put himself in the conversation among the best midfielders in Germany.
Fantasy AnalysisIt was all Bayern on Tuesday in one of the most shocking scorelines of the day, as they led 5-0 after 36 minutes against a Roma side that has been excellent defensively this season. Robben now has four goals and an assist in his last three club matches in all competitions and remains one of the best midfielders in the world.
Fantasy AnalysisLoic Remy, who has started the last two games in place of Costa, suffered a muscle injury during Tuesday's match after scoring a goal, leaving Didier Drogba as the likely starter against United on Sunday.
Fantasy AnalysisRemy injured himself on the opening goal of Chelsea's 6-0 rout and figured to be in line for another start with Diego Costa (hamstring) still sidelined. With both out, Didier Drogba, who replaced Remy after he suffered the injury Tuesday, could get the start, though he just returned from an ankle injury.
Fantasy AnalysisAdriano also became the first player to score four goals in the first half of a Champions League match, while scoring a hat trick in just seven minutes, the fastest in the competitions history. Adding to the records, Adriano became Shakhtar's all-time leading scorer with 115 goals.
Fantasy AnalysisRemy got the start in place of the injured Diego Costa (hamstring) but will be replaced by Didier Drogba, who has been battling an ankle injury of late.
Fantasy AnalysisBale 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.
