RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Medel and the Chile defense held Colombia scoreless in Wednesday's 2-0 win in the Copa America semifinal. Medel didn't register any tackles or interceptions, but worked the back line well, limiting Colombia good looks while they were on the offensive for most of the night.

Medel has been stout in the middle for Chile this tournament, but gets another meeting with Argentina next. The Argentines took the first meeting 2-1 and expecting a clean sheet from either side shouldn't be expected.

Medel and the Chile back line picked up their first clean sheet of Copa America in Saturday's big 7-0 win over Mexico. He was subbed out after 60 minutes and finished with one interception.

Medel didn't have much to do in the back with how Chile dominated. It'd be surprising if they could repeat the effort against Colombia next match, though.

Medel has signed with Inter Milan after transferring from Cardiff City, BBC Sport reports.

Medel signed with Cardiff for 11 million last summer and was a ever-present figure for the club during the 2013-14 season. Still, his performances weren't enough to keep the Bluebirds in the top flight, so Medel, who also impressed with Chile during the World Cup, will now make the jump from the Championship to Serie A.

Medel was credited with the assist when his free kick found Steven Caulker, who in turn found the back of the net during Saturday's 3-3 draw with West Brom.

Medel is most known as a defensive midfielder, so his assist Saturday is a bit of a surprise. Output like this should not be expected regularly from Medel.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Medel (leg) has returned to training this week, the South Wales Echo reports. Medel was expected to be out a couple of weeks but looks to be in line to make a quick return.

Although Medel does not provide much fantasy value, his return does help increase the fantasy value of the Cardiff City defenders. However, they will be faced with a tough match at Tottenham on March 2.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Medel (leg) hobbled off the pitch during Saturday's FA Cup match against Wigan with an apparent leg injury. Scans later revealed he had torn a muscle and is expected to miss several weeks before he is able to return to action, the BBC reports.

Medel's injury will not hurt many fantasy lineups, as the midfielder is known as more of a defensive specialist, but it could have ramifications for Cardiff City defenders' clean sheet chances, as well as the Bluebirds chances for remaining in the Premier League.

Medel missed the Boxing Day match against Southampton due to flu-like symptoms. Cardiff City manager, Malky Mackay, is hopeful the midfielder will be able to return for Saturday's match against Sunderland, Sky Sports reports.

Cardiff City's goal prevention benefits from having Medel in the lineup. The midfielder's excellent marking ability has been key in Cardiff City keeping five clean sheets this season.
