Alonso took two shots, won a single aerial duel, made three tackles, and scored a goal in Saturday's 3-1 win over Ingolstadt.

Alonso received a lay off from Franck Ribery, making no mistake as his shot thunderbolted passed Orjan Nyland into the bottom corner of the net. Alonso doesn't often score goals, but when he does they tend to be on the side of spectacular. Alonso's lack of goal scoring may make it difficult to consistently own him.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alonso scored a goal on his only shot, played one key pass, and made three tackles in Friday's 6-0 win against Werder Bremen.

Alonso opened the scoring in the ninth minute and was subbed off just after the hour mark for Joshua Kimmich after the Bavarians had built a comfortable 3-0 lead. Carlo Ancelotti was also likely being careful with Alonso, who recently recovered from injury. He should be back to full strength after the international break when Bayern Munich face Schalke 04 on 9 Sept.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alonso (leg) is starting on Friday against Werder Bremen.

Alonso's preseason was delayed a bit due to a small muscular injury, but he is fully recovered and ready to take on an important role in the Bayern midfield, though it's one that doesn't usually lend itself to a ton of fantasy points in many formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alonso could likely feature in Friday's season opener against Werder Bremen, according to manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Alonso doesn't often impact the scoresheet directly, but he is an important cog in the Bavarians' midfield, providing crucial through balls and crosses to Bayern's forwards. Manager Carlo Ancelotti will likely rely heavily upon Alonso to orchestrate the game plan from the midfield.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alonso (undisclosed) is slated to return to training Thursday after taking part in an individual session Tuesday.

Alonso played a crucial role for Bayern during the 2015-16 campaign as he logged a pair of assists, while averaging 2.1 tackles and 1.6 key passes per contest, although he was in action for just 26 matches. If he can return to match fitness, the 34-year-old is worth a look, despite a potentially inflated cost, in most formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alonso provided an assist in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Ingolstadt 04 but was forced to come off at the half due to an injury suffered in an aerial collision just before halftime, the club reports.

Alonso has finished the season particularly strong, providing two assists and scoring a goal in his last four matches, across all competitions. The veteran midfielder typically plays the full 90 minutes but was forced off the pitch at halftime Saturday due to an injury suffered in an aerial collision. The club later confirmed that Alonso sustained bruising in his ribs as a result of the collision and was forced to miss training Wednesday. With Bayern Munich’s record-breaking fourth consecutive Bundesliga title secured, it’s likely that Alonso will sit out the final match of the season against lowly Hannover 96 this Saturday, although his status for the DFB Pokal final against Borussia Dortmund will need to be monitored.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alonso put all three of his shots on target in Tuesday’s 2-1 win (2-2 aggregate loss) against Atletico Madrid.

Bayern Munich won the match 2-1 but lost the tie 2-2 on aggregate due to the away goal rule. Alonso was one of the best performing Bayern Munich players Tuesday and was all over the pitch. He put all three of his shots on target, scoring one goal, and provided seven crosses as well. With Bayern Munich now out of the Champions League, he will turn his focus to locking up the Bundesliga title Saturday when the Bavarians travel to face Ingolstadt.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Alonso provided an assist in Tuesday’s 2-0 win over Werder Bremen in the semifinals of the DFB Pokal.

Alonso led the team with three key passes and five crosses to help propel Bayern Munich to the DFB Pokal final and preserve the team’s chances of achieving a treble this year. Bayern Munich travels to the capital Saturday to face Hertha Berlin.
