PARIS Nov 10 (Reuters) - European stocks were seen mixed on Monday following last week's losses, with Carlsberg in focus after posting forecast-beating results.

The Danish brewer, which has a significant exposure to the Russian market, posted a third quarter operating profit slightly above analysts' expectations, and kept its full-year forecast unchanged.

At 0724 GMT, futures for Euro STOXX 50, for UK's FTSE 100, for Germany's DAX and for France's CAC were down 0.1 percent to up 0.1 percent.

On the macro front, China's annual consumer inflation remained near a five-year low in October at 1.6 percent, further evidence that the world's second-largest economy is cooling and reinforcing expectations that authorities will roll out more measures to support growth.

The mining sector will be eyed after the CEO of global miner Rio Tinto , which gets 92 percent of its revenue from iron ore, said the miner was unfazed by the drop in ore prices and sticking to plans to raise output.

Investors will keep an eye on Spanish stocks after millions of Catalans voted on Sunday in a symbolic referendum on independence from Spain that supporters hope will propel the issue further despite opposition from Madrid.
