Gotze provided an assist in Saturday’s 2-0 win against Hertha Berlin.

Gotze has been a mainstay in the squad’s Bundesliga campaign since returning from injury and produced his first assist since October by providing the key pass that led to Arturo Vidal’s goal. Manager Pep Guardiola has plenty of depth at his disposal and has been rotating the squad materially in recent weeks. Gotze barely featured in the Champions League quarterfinal matches, so fantasy owners should monitor the starting lineup ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid to determine whether Gotze will start the day on the pitch or on the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Gotze played in his first Bundesliga match since October, as Bayern Munich defeated Werder Bremen 5-0 last Saturday.

Gotze has been out of commission since Bayern Munich’s 5-1 win against Borussia Dortmund on October 4th, in which he scored a goal and earned an assist. Although he was subbed out in the 53rd minute of Saturday’s contest against Werder Bremen, he did register two shots, putting both on target, and played two crosses. Bayern Munich host Juventus in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg this Wednesday. Even if Gotze starts, it’s unlikely that he will play the full 90 minutes, so fantasy owners may want to look elsewhere until Gotze returns to full match health.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Gotze was an unused sub in Saturday's Bundesliga match against Darmstadt, his first match back after recovering from a thigh injury he suffered in October.

Gotze's long recovery is finally complete, though with a lack of match fitness, it'll still take some time to fight for a spot in the first XI. Bayern certainly didn't miss Gotze too much during his absence, as they are now 11 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga after Saturday's victory. Up next is a Champions League match against Juventus on Tuesday, one that Gotze could feature in but will most likely not start.

Gotze suffered a thigh injury during Germany's Euro 2016 qualifer Thursday and will be out for 10-to-12 weeks.

Gotze has found regular starts a bit hard to come by, but he's a fantastic talent who has a knack for goal. While his absence won't significantly hamper Bayern's attack, they'll certainly be lighter in depth.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Gotze failed to take a single shot but he recorded an assist in Bayern Munich's 2-1 win over Hoffenheim on Saturday.

Gotze is more of a goal scorer than a provider, as evidenced by his nine goals and two assists last season, but he's a consistent attacker for a Bayern side expected to score plenty of goals this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Gotze endured a tumultuous second year at Bayern as he managed just 13 goals and three assists in 37 starts.

The 23-year-old slowed down significantly after scoring six goals in his first seven league matches, and came under criticism when he failed to step up in the absences of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery later on in the campaign. Despite his struggles, Gotze is a big part of Bayern's plans after they splashed out over $40 million for him in 2013, and he will hope to bounce back next season.

Gotze started and registered three shots in Bayern Munich's 0-0 (5-3) DFB Pokal victory over Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday.

Gotze did not have a great game against Leverkusen, as he missed two golden opportunities in front of net. However, he did manage to stay on the pitch for the entire duration of the game and converted a crucial penalty during the shoot out. He has not recorded a goal or an assist since March 11th. Up next, Gotze and company will face 8th place Eintracht Frankfurt.

Gotze got an assist as Germany defeated Georgia 2-0 Sunday in European Championship Qualifying Group D.

Gotze set-up Marco Reus on 39 minutes to send Germany into the lead. Bayern Münich teammate Thomas Müller then doubled the advantage just before the break.
