The Blues are already entered in the semi-final stage of the FIFA competition, to be held in December, where they await the winner of the quarter-final.

That match will be played between reigning CONCACAF Champions League winners Monterrey and the too-be-decided Asian champions with that tournament currently at the quarter-final stage.

There are eight teams left in the AFC competition including Saudi Arabian trio Al-Ittihad, Al-Hilal and Al-Ahli as well as Sepahan of Iran, Guangzhou Evergrande of China, Adelaide United of Australia, Bunyodkor of Uzbekistan and Ulsan Hyundai of Japan.

The FIFA Club World Cup semi-final between Chelsea and either Monterrey or the Asian champs takes place on December 13 in Yokohama with the other final-four fixture to be battled out between Copa Libertadores winners Corinthians of Brazil who will play either the 2012 African (CAF) champions with their opponent still to be decided.
