Chelsea-UCL-2021

UEFA Champions League winners, Chelsea, will take on either UAE Pro League side Al Jazira, New Zealand’s Auckland City FC or AFC Champions League winners Al Hilal in the FIFA Club World Cup semi-finals.

This follows the draw which was conducted on Monday.

In the other semi, Copa Libertadores holders Palmeiras play the winners of the game between African Champions League winners Al Ahly and CONCACAF Champions League winners Monterrey.
