Barzagli started and assisted in a clean sheet during Friday's 1-0 win over Sweden.

The veteran did little to impact the box score as Italy stifled the Swedish attack, but he played his role to perfection as he was once again sandwiched between Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci in the three-back system. Barzagli and company have a perfect defensive record through two matches and will look to finish off the group stage in similar fashion Wednesday versus Ireland.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Barzagli secured a pair of interceptions and contributed to a clean sheet during Monday's 2-0 triumph over Belgium.

The veteran drew into the starting XI as Italy went with a back three to open the tournament, and he played a big part in stifling one of the tournaments most fearsome attacking units. The Azurri are likely to stick with the formation after Monday's success, meaning Barzagli should continue to see plenty of action, which makes him a serviceable low-cost option heading into Friday's match versus Sweden.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

The 2006 World Cup champion could return to Italy after missing out on South Africa following a two-year stint in Germany, reports.

Barzagli is a quality player who probably lost his spot in the national team because he chose to move to Germany over his hometown club Fiorentina in 2008 from Palermo with the difference being just a few hundred thousand dollars. Marcello Lippi is a fellow Tuscan and it is believed he did not support the idea.
