Chelsea to discover likely Club World Cup opponents tomorrow night

Thomas Tuchel arrived at Chelsea at the end of January, and has since won the Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup.

Those victories mean his team are now in the FIFA Club World Cup, not the most prestigious trophy in the world, but technically perhaps the “best”, given it throws together the champions of each continent to see who the best club team in the world are (in theory).

Al Hilal of Audi Arabia, Al Ahly of Egypt, Monterrey of Mexico, Auckland City of New Zealand and Al Jazira from the UAE are already in the hat with the Blues, with the draw set to take place on November 29th.

There is one spot to be decided – the team most likely to meet Chelsea in the final. The winner of tomorrow night’s Copa Libertadores final between Flamengo and Palmeiras will be South America’s representative in the tournament in the UAE.
