    Real are another team to have disappointment

    It's me again.

    Does "Real are another team to have disappointment" mean "Real are another team who/that have disappointment"?

    As far as I know, (the) first, second, last and superlative forms of adjectives can be used with "to infinitive" to mean the same as relative clauses.

    The first man to speak was Harry = The first man who/that spoke was Harry.

    Does it also apply to "another"?

    Thank you.

    By Real, I mean Real Madrid.

    Re: Real are another team to have disappointment

    Yes, but it's not a very natural sentence to me. I'd use something like Real are another team that have experienced disappointment.
