Real Madrid will be hoping to go one step closer to the La Liga title this weekend when they travel to mid-table Real Betis on Saturday evening.
As things stand, Jose Mourinho’s men are a comfortable 10 points clear of 2nd placed Barcelona with 13 games to go this season. They are taking one game at time of course, with every victory taking them a step closer to a famous title win.
Madrid are showing no signs of faltering in their form either. Last time out they hammered Espanyol 5-0, with Cristiano Ronaldo opening the scoring for his 30th goal of an incredible season.
There may well still be concerns about the future of Mourinho, but if he is to leave at the end of the current season, it seems almost certain that he will be doing so on the back of a title winning campaign.
As for Real Betis, they could still do with the points to ensure they avoid relegation this season. It is unlikely that they will be dragged into the bottom three, but with six points the gap between themselves and the relegation zone, they could do with another couple of wins.

Facing Madrid is an extremely tough task at the moment though of course and Pepe Mel’s men aren’t exactly in the best form right now. Things were looking good when they secured two successive wins in February, but a home draw with Getafe and defeat at Levante has followed.
They have also won just one of their last four home games, so winning isn’t exactly a habit for Betis right now. They were hammered 4-1 when these two teams met earlier this season too, so they know the quality they are up against.
Overall, this is one that Madrid should win relatively comfortably, but with the pressure on, perhaps an improved home performance from Betis can make this 9pm kick-off on Saturday more competitive than many are predicting.
