Fantasy Liga MX: Saturday Cheat Sheet

Chris Henne is looking for a few solid values in the midfield for Saturday's Liga MX slate because there are a few upper-tier forwards that are worth serious fantasy consideration

Marcelo: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

September 18, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marcelo and the Real Madrid back line picked up their second clean sheet of the season in Sunday's 2-0 win at Espanyol. He finished with two successful tackles in the win.

Real Madrid's defense has been hit-or-miss this season and two road clean sheets is a prime example of that. At home against Villarreal on Wednesday, it's hard to trust the defense.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marcelo returned to the starting XI for Wednesday's Champions League match against Sporting CP.

Marcelo rested from the La Liga match against Osasuna, however has returned for the club's opening match of the Champions League. He'll most likely continue his usual starting role for Real Madrid as the season continues.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marcelo (rest) is in the 19-man squad for Wednesday's Champions League match with Sporting.

Marcelo was rested for the weekend La Liga match with Osasuna but will be available on Wednesdays. If Marcelo is in the starting XI, he is a top-tier fantasy option in defence.

September 9, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marcelo has been ruled out of Saturday's clash with Osasuna as he needs to rest, Marca reports.

Marcelo is healthy and back with the team but he'll be rested due to an exhausting international break and a late arrival from South America. Fabio Coentrao is also still having fitness concerns and if unable to slot at left back coach Zinedine Zidane will probably have to reshuffle the back line.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marcelo and the Real Madrid back line held Sociedad scoreless in Sunday's 3-0 win. Marcelo finished with one shot and two successful tackles.

It wasn't the greatest opener for Marcelo, but his position is fairly stable at left back. With better health this season, the Madrid back line could secure more clean sheets.

May 30, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marcelo secured five interceptions, put in four crosses and landed a shot on goal during Saturday's Champions League final victory over Atletico.

The fullback was a constant presence in the attacking third for all 120 minutes, and he stepped up to bury a penalty as Los Blancos won with a brilliant shootout performance. Marcelo, who had another fine season, is set to remain at the club for four more years and will be one of the first names on the team sheet in 2016/17. His involvement with the Brazilian national team this summer could delay his return a bit at club level, however.

March 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marcelo won seven tackles, secured three interceptions and put in eight crosses during Sunday's 4-0 win over Sevilla.

The fullback didn't make it onto the scoresheet, but he was excellent at both ends of the pitch in helping his side secure three points. Marcelo had been uncharacteristically quiet on offense in previous matches, so it was a welcome sign to see him more involved Sunday. Marcelo and company will face a tough task following the upcoming international break, with Barcelona next up on the schedule.
