Real Madrid's unwanted December distraction, a trip to FIFA's World Club Cup as Champions League winners, will continue according to script despite a scare on Wednesday in the United Arab Emirates. "It's obviously a pleasure to play it because you can only do it if you've won the Champions League".

The Spanish side dominated the game but, not for the first time this season, showed remarkable profligacy in front of goal until Cristiano Ronaldo equalized in the second half and Gareth Bale hit a late victor 30 seconds after coming off the bench.

They won La Liga, the Champions League, UEFA and Spanish Super Cup in a thrilling fashion after hitting top form in a four-month spell between April and August, but since then the European champions have faded, understandably worn out by a heavy schedule.
