Although the start of the 2011-12 La Liga season has been postponed due to a player strike, there will be football in Spain this year. Real Madrid will be one of the top contenders for the league title, as they look to dethrone reigning champions Barcelona.

In José Mourinho's first year as Madrid manager, Los Blancos finished second behind their rivals from Catalonia. Although they had a successful 2010-11 campaign, the club will expect better results this season. Madrid will be competing for a record 32nd La Liga title.

Mourinho has signed five new players in the summer transfer window, bolstering a squad that has world-class talent at every position.

Although Madrid lost the Supercopa to rivals Barcelona, they were impressive in preseason. Los Blancos had won seven out of seven matches leading up to the Supercopa, and performed well over both legs.

Mourinho has built a squad that is ready to challenge Barcelona and claim domestic glory.

Here are 20 bold predictions for the new La Liga season.
