BR - crappy Deportivo side looking to get back on track, the reigning Dutch champions and their eternal rivals, Barcelona. All in the span of eight days.
For many teams, that schedule has the potential to make or break at least one title chase. Yet that is exactly what awaits Real Madrid.
Los Merengues have been in very poor form to start the season, but these next three weeks provide them the perfect opportunity to re-establish their place as the team to beat in Spain.
