Chelsea will play either the winners of the Asian Champions League or Mexican side Monterrey in the semi-finals of December's Club World Cup in Japan.

The identity of the team representing Asia in the annual intercontinental competition will not be known until the final of the Asian Champions League on November 10.

The other quarter-final will be contested by the champions of Africa and the winners of a play-off between Oceania champions Auckland City of New Zealand and the winners of Japan's national football championship.

The victors of that encounter will tackle South American champions Corinthians in the other semi-final.

Chelsea qualified for the tournament by beating Bayern Munich on penalties in May's UEFA Champions League final.

Roberto di Matteo's side will be seeking to succeed Barcelona as World Club champions.
