CHELSEA get their Club World Cup campaign underway as they look to win the competition for the first time.
The Blues have participated in the Club World Cup before, but were beaten 1-0 by Corinthians in the 2012 final.
However, their Champions League final win over Man City has given them a second chance to win the trophy a decade later.
Standing in their way in the semi-final is Asian champions Al Hilal.
The Saudi side came from behind in the quarter-finals to hammer UAE champions Al-Jazira 6-1 on their own turf.
