The Spanish league opening

The Spanish La Liga is opening this weekend. Call me crazy, but I am going to make a prediction: first and second are going to be Barcelona/Real Madrid, and the rest are just going to be fighting for third place...
Barcelona have a new coach and so have Real Madrid. Before the season starts, Real Madrid seems to have the upper hand under Carlo Ancelotti, having created a more quiet atmosphere than under the Jose Mourinho soap opera. FC Barcelona on the other hand are an unwritten chapter under Gerardo Martino. He is offensive, but more cynical as well. It will be interesting to see how Barcelona adapts.
No matter what, the Spanish league will be somewhat lame, since the only interesting thing, are the two top sides.
