La Liga start

Barcelona just won the Super Cup without much surprise by beating Porto 2-0. As the La Liga season starts tomorrow, the question is whether Barcelona will again crush the challenge from Real Madrid, or if the Los Blancos will finally be able to go the distance against their fierce rivals.

With the reinforcement from Alexis Sanchez and Cesc Fabregas, Barcelona look to be an even better team. But that does not guarantee success at the end of the season, since Real Madrid look prime to be winning most of their matches as well. It will be down to few points, it will be down to the 2 matches between these protagonists. Anything other than winning 3 points in any game will most probably have an devastating effect for both teams. They will both be expected to win against everyone else, even against the likes of also-rans like Sevilla, Villareal and Valencia.

It is said that Mourinho makes his team even better in his second season, so Barcelona will be well aware that the threat from Madrid will be even greater than last year's. The Los Blancos are thirsty for glory, and any lack of drive or thirst from the Catalans resulting from their long haul of trophies is bound to help the cause of Mourinho's men.

Real Madrid travel to Zaragoza and it will be a case of must-win for the visitors. They won't lose and most probably will win. A draw-no-bet on Real Madrid is a banker. The prospect of a win look very good and is recommended.

Win: Real Madrid
