The most recent Ligue 1 fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisLopes has been strong this season, piloting Lyon to five clean sheets in eight Ligue 1 matches and has only conceded twice in Champions League play. However, Lyon has taken just one point from six and are going to have an uphill struggle to advance in the Champions League.
Fantasy AnalysisCavani is in incredible form right now, scoring six goals in his last four games, including one in the Champions League. PSG are still without a Ligue 1 defeat, and Cavani has been a major reason why.
Fantasy AnalysisDespite a lingering knee injury, Ibrahimovic played against his former club and found Edinson Cavani for the second goal of the game. The Swedish forward now has three assists in three appearances across all competitions this year.
Fantasy AnalysisCavani is on fire this year, scoring six goals in seven appearances across all competitions (four in Ligue 1, one in the Trophee des Champions and one in the Champions League). Alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Angel Di Maria, PSG has the offensive firepower to make a deep Champions League run.
Fantasy AnalysisThe goal opened the scoring, striking in the fourth minute and providing plenty of pressure up front for PSG. The attacking trio of Di Maria, Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, each of whom scored a goal or tallied an assist, make for as formidable a group of options outside of Catalonia.
Fantasy AnalysisVerratti helped open the scoring, getting Angel Di Maria the ball in space on the flank and letting Di Maria do the rest. The assist was Verratti's first in six appearances across all competitions after 10 assists in 32 Ligue 1 appearances. Discipline has been a problem for him as he accumulated 18 yellows across 48 appearances in all competitions last year.
Fantasy AnalysisWith PSG holding 75 percent of the possession and allowing Malmo to get just six total shots off, Trapp had just about as quiet a day on Europe's biggest stage as possible. They'll get a tricky fixture up next in Ukraine as they take on Shakhtar Donetsk.
Fantasy AnalysisIbrahimovic was iffy for the match because of the knee ailment, but he's recovered enough to start against his boyhood club, which is expected to be well overmatched by the French giants.
Fantasy AnalysisDi Maria is expected to start when the team reconvenes after the international break, and given the exciting finishers around him, Di Maria is likely to be an excellent fantasy option in nearly all formats.
Fantasy AnalysisThe fullback fell out of favor at Real Madrid last season and has now been loaned out to French side Monaco for the rest of the season. Coentrao was signed from Benfica for £25m in 2011 but has fallen down the pecking order lately.
