Cesar (thigh) is not in the squad for Wednesday's Champions League match against Zenit St. Petersburg.

Ederson Moraes got the start this past weekend and earned a clean sheet at Sporting CP, so it appears likely that he'll get the big Champions League start as well.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cesar made two saves while keeping a clean sheet in Tuesday's 1-0 victory over Zenit in the Champions League.

Benfica controlled play throughout the match, with Zenit controlling a third of the possession and only managing five total shots. The former QPR keeper made all the saves he needed to and provided an assured hand at the back. By not conceding, it gives Benfica the upper hand as they make the treacherous trip to Russia.

Cesar made one save while recording a clean sheet in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over FC Astana.

With Benfica bossing the Kazakh side around in the midfield, Cesar saw only one shot on net, which he dealt with comfortably. However, he was lucky to see Aleksei Schetkin's second-half shot ricochet off the post. They will face a stiffer test when they travel to Madrid to take on Atletico in their next fixture in the group stage.

Cesar conceded three goals, including a fumble for the first, as Benfica lost 3-1 Wednesday to Bayer Leverkusen in Champions League Group C.

Brazil's World Cup goalkeeper had a torrid game. This was his first Champions League game since March 2012 and it showed, often looking nervous and indecisive. Although making a good save after five minutes, Cesar didn't instill confidence in his defense and failed to hold onto Heung-Min Son's strike which led to Stefan Kiessling's goal. Cesar has now made two appearances for Benfica since his summer move and has failed to keep a clean sheet.

Cesar has officially joined Benfica after leaving QPR by mutual consent, BBC Sport reports.

Cesar joined up with QPR in 2012, but only made 24 appearances before getting loaned out to Toronto FC last season. The 34-year old, who had been overtaken by Robert Green as first-choice at Loftus Road, will start a new challenge at Benfica, where he will try to fill the void left by Jan Oblak.

Cesar is in discussions with Queens Park Rangers to settle a severance payment before he finalizes a free transfer to Benfica, according to the Daily Mail.

QPR is looking to free up some funds for wages, and Cesar's salary is one the club would like to be free of. Cesar started all of Brazil's World Cup matches this summer and was recently with Toronto FC on loan.

Cesar was recalled from his loan spell at Toronto FC by Queens Park Rangers on Friday, the Associated Press reports.

Cesar has been with Toronto since February and had a decent run as the starting keeper for Brazil at the World Cup until the semifinals. It's unclear if he will start at QPR this season, after he fell out of favor last year while the club was in the Championship.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cesar made three saves but allowed seven goals during Brazil's loss to Germany in the World Cup semifinal Tuesday.

After giving up a goal in the 11th minute, the Brazilian defense appeared to just give up and by halftime they trailed 5-0. There wasn't much Cesar could do, as he made a few decent saves, but after the blitz of goals in the first half, it was all but over by halftime.
