Cech made no saves en route to an upsetting 2-0 defeat to Turkey in Euro 2016 final group-stage match Tuesday. The Czech Republic slips down to fourth place in Group D with merely one point and are eliminated.

Cech couldn't help his team avoid the devastating loss conceding on both attempts on target. Needing to win the Czechs had more possession on the ball but clueless what to do with it, while the Turkish were well organized and patient in the back and deadly in the breaks. Cech will finish what could be his last major tournament for his country with three starts, seven saves, five goals conceded and no clean sheets.

Groups C and D finish up Tuesday, with Germany and Spain well positioned to take the top spots, but some potential squad rotation could open up fantasy rosters.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cech made three saves en route to a dramatic stoppage-time equalizer for a 2-2 draw versus Croatia on Friday.

The Croatians had a total of 17 shots on goal and things could've gotten a lot uglier for Cech if the Chequered Ones were able to keep more than five of them on target. The Czechs are facing their easiest, on paper, match up on Tuesday playing against the other group outsider - Turkey, though, if the team doesn't contain the ball better in midfield and doesn't start playing a little bit more offensively Cech will continue having a lot of work which could end up in another poor fantasy outcome for him.

Cech did everything in his power to help Czech Republic against Spain, but ultimately it wasn't enough. In the 1-0 loss, Cech added four saves.

Cech and the Czechs will have a better opportunity for a clean sheet in their next two matches against Croatia and Turkey. Expect plenty more defensive matches in Group D.

Cech won the Premier League's Golden Glove award with 16 clean sheets to his credit in his first season with Arsenal, reports Sky Sports.

This is Cech's fourth time winning the award, but his first with Arsenal. He helped the side finish second in the league, the team's highest finish in 11 years.

Cech made two saves while keeping a clean sheet in Sunday's 4-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Playing Championship-bound Aston Villa, Cech had a quiet day, making a keen save in the first half, but only saw five shots come in his direction all afternoon. In 34 Premier League starts, Cech conceded 31 goals and kept 16 clean sheets. For the team's only signing of the summer, Cech made a profound impact on the team's back-line, but at times struggled with his fitness, something to watch moving forward as he turns 34 next week.

Cech made one save and conceded two goals in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Manchester City.

Cech's been strong throughout the season, but has shown a shocking weakness when covering low to the near post. Both of City's goals came to the near post on low, driven shots. Whether it's because he's nursing an injury or time has finally caught up to the seemingly ageless keeper, Cech was slightly less assured than he typically is. The Gunners close out with a visit from relegation-assured Aston Villa, which should present far less of a challenge than that of Sergio Aguero and the Citizens.

Cech made three saves while keeping a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Norwich City.

Cech was outstanding in the first half, making a pair of key saves on Nathan Redmond before the balance of play tipped toward the Gunners in the second half and Cech's involvement dwindled. With a pair of key matches left against Manchester City and Aston Villa to keep Arsenal in the top-four, Cech will need to remain in top form.

Cech made three saves while keeping a clean sheet in Sunday's scoreless draw with Sunderland.

Cech had virtually nothing to do in the first half, but was pressed into duty early on in the second half, making a fine double save and then another one a few minutes later. While Sunderland threatened at times, Cech was confident off his line and was lucky to see a free kick clatter off the crossbar in the first half. With Per Mertesacker back in central defense, Arsenal's back-four looks much more composed, albeit unable to make up for mistakes thanks to a significant drop in pace.
