The league returns after the two week stoppage due to international fixtures. Real Madrid will receive Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday (18:00 CET) in their first of five games in the next fortnight. Jose Mourinho hasn't lost a single game in October in the last seven years and will count on the recently recovered Benzema, Pepe and Coentrao to look for another victory this month. Cristiano Ronaldo could make his 100th appearance with Real Madrid and will look to score against the only side in the First Division, alongside Sporting and Granada, that has yet to concede a goal to him. Mesut Ozil surely hopes to celebrate his 23rd birthday with a win over Betis.
