Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is pleased with his squad ahead of today's Liga opener against Real Mallorca.

Mourinho believes he can overhaul Barcelona in the race for the title at first attempt.

"Barcelona play very well, but we have no intention to copy them, and at the same time I have no will to finish second," he said.

"We have to hope [Karim] Benzema and [Gonzalo] Higuain stay injury free because this could be a problem for us."
