Chelsea will face Mexican side Monterrey or the winners of the Asian Champions League in the semi-finals of the Club World Cup in December.

The Blues, who qualified for the tournament after they were crowned European champions last May, will continue their bid to succeed Barcelona as Club World Cup champions on December 13 in Yokohama, Japan.

The draw, made by FIFA on Monday, pitted Monterrey against the team representing Asia - who will not be known until the final of the Asian Champions League on November 10 - in the quarter-final stage, with a clash against Roberto Di Matteo's Chelsea at stake.
