Real Madrid boss Mourinho: Spanish Liga two-horse race
Real won the Spanish Liga title last season.
"If Barcelona didn't exist, Madrid would win the league without a coach," he said. "We accumulated 100 points and Barca 91. This is something that you don't see in leagues like Italy, France and England.
"To win the Champions League it isn't necessary to be the best, you only have to look at the final. In that, Bayern had 18 corners and Chelsea only one and look what happened. The English scored with this sole corner.
"Once again this just showed that in a final or a cup game anything can happen. In a league competition it is different. You play 38 games and the small details count for a lot."
