The most recent Ligue 1 fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisPSG will be missing a few key pieces in a very tough matchup, as they trail Barcelona 3-1 on aggregate heading to Camp Nou.
Fantasy AnalysisIbrahimovic is currently serving a three-match domestic ban for referee criticism, but he'll be available for Wednesday's match while trying to pull off the near-impossible, as Barcelona lead 3-1 on aggregate.
Fantasy AnalysisN'Jie has really blossomed in recent months and now constitutes one-third of an exciting Lyon attacking trio that also includes Alex Lacazette and Nabil Fekir. Overall, the 21-year-old N'Jie boasts five goals and six assists through just 13 league starts and he should be vital as Lyon pushes for the French title to close this season.
Fantasy AnalysisCavani's record of nine goals through 29 Ligue 1 matches is a bit disappointing, but across all 38 appearances he's made for PSG this season, the Uruguayan has registered a much better tally of 22 goals. Six of those scores have come in the Champions League and Tuesday's match at Barcelona represents an occasion when his absolute best will be required for Paris Saint-Germain.
Fantasy AnalysisPastore's seven assists this season lead PSG, but the Argentine brought his shooting boots Saturday, scoring just before and shortly after half-time. In doing so, Pastore staked his claim to start in the Parisian's midweek Champions League tie at Barcelona on Tuesday.
Fantasy AnalysisSilva picked up in the injury in the 21st minute of last week's first leg, and while he was initially included in the squad despite missing Saturday's Ligue 1 match against Nice, he simply could not recover in time.
Fantasy AnalysisIbrahmovic's absence is obviously a huge blow for PSG, as he is third in Ligue 1 with 17 goals. He also missed out on PSG's Champions League match against Barcelona after picking up a red card against Chelsea in the Round of 16. Ibrahimovic has dropped hints recently that his time in France may be coming to an end, and he will likely be a popular transfer rumor name this summer.
Fantasy AnalysisIbrahimovic's comments also included some disparaging remarks about all French referees, while stating that the country didn't deserve PSG to even be in the country. It's a harsh penalty and comes as PSG continue to battle for another title.
Fantasy AnalysisThe injury comes at a terrible time for PSG, as Luiz will miss both legs of the Champions League quarterfinal tie with Barcelona, as well as the French Cup final and league cup semifinal. He was instrumental in taking down Chelsea in the Round of 16 and will leave a big hole in the center of defense alongside Thiago Silva.
Fantasy AnalysisThe deal theoretically keeps the Brazilian in Paris through the 2018-19 season, though he's been the subject of a plethora of transfer rumors, so it's possible the extension only got rid of some kind of buyout clause, allowing PSG to maximize any fee.
