Real not only have the reverse fixture of a warning, but also have recent home failures against Barcelona and Atletico Madrid to ensure they are up to the task.

Change - good and bad - comes quickly at the TPC Sawgrass

It was the eighth ace at the island green in the history of the event, and Garcia raised his right arm in a somewhat muted clenched-fist celebration as the gallery went wild.
