Corinthians Tite alongside Jorge Henrique

Corinthians Tite alongside Jorge Henrique

Corinthians and Chelsea clash in the Club World Cup final on Sunday. The Premier League outfit start as heavy favourites but Brazilian sides have a decent record in the competition against English opposition. The two countries have met three times in the Club World Cup Final: Flamengo 3-0 Liverpool 1981, Manchester United 1-0 Palmeiras 1999, and Sao Paulo 1-0 Liverpool in 2005 with Rafael Benitez in charge.
Concerned by Chelsea’s height and power in midfield, Corinthians coach Tite is expected to drop left-sided midfielder, Douglas, for striker Jorge Henrique. The diminutive forward, however, is more likely to act as cover down the right hand flank than in an out and out attacking role.
Corinthians (probable): Cássio; Alessandro, Chicão, Paulo André, Fábio Santos, Ralf, Paulinho, Jorge Henrique, Danilo, Emerson, Guerrero
Coach: Tite
Chelsea (possible): Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, David Luiz, Ashley Cole, Obi Mikel, Ramires (Lampard), Juan Mata, Oscar (Marin), Hazard, Fernando Torres
Coach: Rafael Benitez
Date: 16 December 2012
Kick-off: 10:30 (London), 08:30 (Brasília) 19:30 (Tokyo)
Venue: International Stadium, Yokohama
Official: Cüneyt Çakir (Turkey)
