RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benzema (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's Champions League match against Manchester City, Marca reports.

Benzema is likely to face a late fitness test after being withdrawn early in last week's first leg. On the plus side for Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to return from his hamstring injury, while Gareth Bale has played very well of late.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benezema (hamstring) has been cleared and will be on the pitch against Manchester City on Tuesday.

Benezema is the second leading goal scorer for Real Madrid in the UCL this season and is a crucial return with Cristiano Ronaldo (leg) sidelined. In addition, the 28-year-old has added 23 tallies in league play during the 2015-16 campaign. The team will lean heavily on the forward if Ronaldo remains out long term, which makes him a crucial addition to your fantasy lineup.

Benzema (hamstring) has been deemed fully fit for Tuesday's Champions League match against Manchester City, ESPN FC reports.

Benzema is questionable for Tuesday's Champions League match against Manchester City after suffering an apparent hamstring injury during Saturday's match against Rayo Vallecano, ESPN FC reports.

Benzema was removed from Saturday's match before halftime due to the ailment, and if he's forced to miss out, Jese could move into the starting lineup. Making things worse for Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo is dealing with a muscular injury, though he is traveling for Tuesday's tie.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benzema scored the opening goal on three shots and added a pair of assists in Saturday's 5-1 thumping of Getafe.

Big Benz hadn't factored into a goal in two matches heading into the weekend, but he wasted no time in burying a James Rodriguez pass in the 29th minute before setting up Isco and Gareth Bale as Madrid blew the game open. He set a new personal best by tucking away his 22nd La Liga goal of the season, and he still has an outside shot at his mark of 28 in all competitions. He will be back at it when Los Blancos take on Villarreal in a Wednesday fixture.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benzema scored a goal on five shots and earned an assist from five key passes during Sunday's 4-0 demolition of Sevilla.

The striker returned to play his first match in nearly a month after recovering from a hamstring injury, and he was seamlessly reinserted back into the lineup. Benzema has now registered his second domestic haul of at least 20 goals since joining Los Blancos, and he should have no problem rivaling his personal best of 28 in all competitions. He should be fully fit when Real Madrid resumes league play versus Barcelona on Apr. 2.
