Pepe kept a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 victory in extra time over Croatia in the Round of 16 at the Euros.

A mainstay of Real Madrid's starting XI when healthy, Pepe has effectively anchored Portugal's back-line through their first four matches. His nine clearances led the match against Croatia and he'll need to be at his best again on Thursday against Robert Lewandowski and the rest of the Polish attack in the quarterfinals.

Pepe took one shot, which was on target, and played all 90 minutes in Wednesday’s 3-3 draw with Hungary.

Pepe continues to be a mainstay in Portugal’s defence as they will in fact advance to the Round of 16 at Euro 2016. Although this was not Portugal’s best defensive display, Pepe has been a key part of their backline, playing all 270 minutes of the tournament. Expect to see him in the starting XI for Saturday’s match with Croatia.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pepe recorded a clean sheet, one cross, six interceptions and received a yellow card on two fouls in Saturday's Euro 2016 scoreless draw to Austria.

Pepe was the only one from the Portugal defensive line who couldn't contribute with offensive stats despite the mind-blowing 23 attempts at goal. In addition to that his knack for disciplinary trouble makes him the least appealing fantasy option from the team's defensive line.

Pepe won three tackles, made four interceptions and blocked a shot during Saturday's 5-0 blanking of Deportivo.

The veteran assumed additional leadership responsibilities at the back after Sergio Ramos was forced to leave with an injury, leading Los Blancos to their first clean sheet since late November. Pepe rarely pitches in on the offensive end, and while he is a fairly important player for his club, he primarily only holds fantasy value in formats that reward defensive contributions. Next up is a home fixture with Sporting Gijon this Sunday.

Pepe had a clean sheet Saturday as Real Madrid defeated Granada 1-0.

Pepe marked his return to the side last week with a clean sheet and again succeeded in keeping out the opposition Saturday. The Portuguese international formed a strong defensive pairing with Raphael Varane but was barely troubled, Granada only registering three shots on target. Pepe also produced a shot of his own but failed to convert.

Pepe had a clean sheet Saturday as Real Madrid beat Espanyol 6-0.

Pepe played his first game of the season and marked it with a solid clean sheet. There was little to trouble the Portuguese international, who made four clearances and formed a strong centre-back pairing with Serio Ramos. Expect Pepe to keep his place in the side next time out now that he has made his way back.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pepe was limited to 33 starts because of injury this season, but still managed to contribute two goals and three assists while helping the club to 15 clean sheets.

The Portuguese defender has seemingly always struggled through injuries due to his rugged style of play, but there have never been any doubts about his effectiveness when he's on the pitch. Now 32 years old, Pepe was able to remain ahead of the likes of Rafael Verane and Alvaro Arbeloa on the depth chart this season but could see his role change as new manager Rafael Benitez assesses his squad this summer.

Pepe was taken off with injury after 40 minutes Saturday in Real Madrid's 7-3 win over Getafe.

Pepe had to be taken off for Raphael Varane in the first half but the extent of the injury is yet to be made clear. The Portuguese defender played poorly in his time on the field and conceded twice.
