Real Madrid will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in Spain's top flight when they continue their domestic campaign at home to high-flying Real Betis on Saturday night.


Los Blancos, who are currently top of the La Liga table, will enter the match off the back of a 3-0 victory at Cadiz, while Betis occupy fifth position, level on points with sixth-placed Villarreal.


Match preview

Real Madrid moved to the top of the table on Wednesday evening courtesy of a three-goal success at Cadiz, where Karim Benzema scored a brace for the reigning champions in a strong performance.


Zinedine Zidane's side were missing a number of important players against the promoted outfit but still managed to triumph in comfortable fashion, moving above Atletico Madrid to the summit.


Atletico will have the chance to reclaim first position when they take on Huesca on Thursday evening, and it does appear that four teams are currently in the race for the title, with Sevilla in third just three points off the summit and fourth-placed Barcelona five points behind with two games in hand.


Los Blancos must simply continue to win and see where that leaves them entering the final straight, but they will certainly have one eye on the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Chelsea next week.


There have also been plenty of distractions off the field, with the club's president Florentino Perez extremely vocal as he continues to fight for the European Super League, which has been left in disarray during an incredible few days in the history of football.


Betis will be looking to take advantage of any uncertainty in the Real Madrid ranks when they make the trip to the Spanish capital, and Manuel Pellegrini's side have plenty to fight for this season.


Indeed, a record of 14 wins, seven draws and 11 defeats from 32 matches has seen them collect 49 points, leaving them in fifth position in the table, level on points with sixth-placed Villarreal.


Betis are 16 points off the top four, meaning that a Champions League spot for next season is not a possibility unless something incredible happens, but they will be determined to finish as the best of the rest at this level of football.


Pellegrini's team have only lost once in La Liga since the start of February, although they have now played out four straight draws, including a 0-0 at home to Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday evening.


The Seville-based outfit have also been inconsistent on their travels this term, winning six, drawing two and losing seven of their 15 La Liga fixtures, which is the seventh-best record in the division.
