The 44th edition of the Ryder Cup continues at Marco Simone with four of the five sessions completed. 

The Europeans maintained their momentum in the Saturday morning foursomes to stretch their lead from an overnight 6.5-1.5 to 9.5-2.5 following another dominant 3-1 winning session. That included Viktor Hovland and Ludvig Aberg's record-breaking rout of Brooks Koepka and Scottie Scheffler.

However, Team Europe's charge to what is still a highly probable victory was stalled by a US resurgence in the afternoon fourball. 

Even then, it took until the very last hole of the day for the US to turn what had looked like a 2-2 session into 3-1 win in its favour, thanks largely to some incredible golf from Patrick Cantlay, who produced three birdies in the last three holes to snuff out the challenge of Rory McIlroy and Matt Fitzpatrick

That puts the overnight score at 10.5-5.5 in favour of the Europeans. There is still plenty of golf to be played, with 12 points up for grabs in the Sunday singles. The Europeans need four more points to reclaim the trophy, while the Americans need 8.5.

First out are two of the highest-profile players in the match, as Masters champion Jon Rahm faces World No.1 Scottie Scheffler, while Cantlay will hope to continue his momentum against another in-form player, Justin Rose, with the pair the third to tee it up. Elsewhere, Rory McIlroy faces Sam Burns immediately after, with the final match-up being Robert MacIntyre vs Wyndham Clark.
